Experienced psychotherapist working with adults and couples to make meaning out of life's difficulties and help you find ways to move forward. Anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and addictions are areas in which I work and where I can offer a safe supportive and non-judgemental space. I bring over 25 years of skill, imagination, knowledge and experience to the work, you can check out my training credentials and membership of the BACP here https://www.bacp.co.uk.
I pay deep attention to you and how you view the world as sometimes we hold unconscious beliefs that hold us back from making the most of ourselves. The therapy hour is a space held open just for you on a regular basis, usually weekly. It is a space outside of the day to day stresses to sit, talk, express, reflect and imagine,
My aim is to make a place for your suffering and accompany you on your journey towards a better understanding of yourself and your path in life. I am trained as an Integrative Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist; this training emphasises the importance of the soul, the essential quality of the imagination and finding a place for all parts of ourselves to exist, including the excluded, forgotten and neglected. It is a soulful approach which values creative ways of coping with difficulties, disappointments, trauma and loss.
The first meeting we have is without charge for 30 minutes to discuss what issues you are facing and whether I think I can help you and whether you would like to work with me.
Next Steps - Please feel free to email me or telephone my mobile and leave a message. I would aim to respond to you within 24 hours.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
