About me

I work currently work via online video platforms.

Whatever your reason for seeking counselling or psychotherapy, talking in a professional and confidential setting can help you uncover what lies behind your difficult feelings or recurring patterns of behaviour and explore what it means to change and how to achieve this. You can contact me via telephone or email and we can have an initial conversation to see if you would like to arrange a consultation to meet with me to discuss what is concerning you.

I am a psychodynamically informed psychotherapist and offer both individual and group based therapies.

I work part-time in the NHS and have over 27 years experience as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Group Analyst both in the NHS and in private practice. I offer evidence-based psychological therapies for a wide range of emotional, relational and behavioural difficulties. I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, which means that I am able to consider a persons difficulties and work in a way that best suits their individual needs and in a safe, secure and non-judgemental environment.

Some of the issues that people come to me with include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, childhood trauma, PTSD, personality difficulties. Some come for therapy because they have lost a sense of meaning in their lives and are seeking greater fulfilment. You may have difficulty in concentrating in work or have an inability to form satisfactory relationships. Or you may repeat destructive patterns of behaviour in your relationships causing you to sabotage them when things seemed to be going well, or leading you to stay in unhealthy relationships because you fear being alone.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP Accredited/Registered Psychotherapist and full member of the Institute of Group Analysis where I am also a teacher, tutor, supervisor and convenor.

My main training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy and group analysis. I am also trained in IPT, trauma focused CBT and Compassionate Mind therapy for PTSD.

I have 27 years clinical experience both in private practice and in NHS mental health services as a psychotherapist and group analyst.
