About me

I work face to face, and on the phone and zoom. This is dependent on the current situation.
I am a trained Psychodynamic Counsellor and also an Attachment Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist. I have had a private practice since 1998 and I have my own private and secure consulting room in Isleham which is between Newmarket and Ely. It has disabled access and parking.

I consider the working relationship to be crucial and therefore think of the first session as an assessment of both therapist and client. It is as important that any potential client feels they can work with me, as for me to feel I can work with them.

I do not work to a predetermined number of sessions but between us that is worked out as the work continues. Some people know they want a only a few sessions to address a pressing need such as anxiety, others may feel they want longer work, students have training requirements for hours of therapy and some people may just want to see how it goes. My work is tailored to the individual. As well as working with private individuals I also work with many organisations seeing their employees with work related issues and personal problems.

I run workshops and I have been part of the The Bury Practice for Counselling and Psychotherapy since 2000. I am also a member of The Forum of Independent Psychotherapists and was a past Chair and Director. I am an Accredited member of UKCP.

I am also a Supervisor. I provide clinical supervision for therapists and also for others such as medical professionals, welfare officers, teachers or clergy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Easy parking, a slight slope up to my office with a handrail.
