- Who I am
I provide solution focused short term therapy and long-term counselling and psychotherapy and work from the New Forest on Skpye in both English or Spanish. I am fully accredited by the BACP & a BPS graduate member.
I work with addiction, isolation, depression, anxiety, bereavement, workplace issues, men's issues and issues of belonging with couples and individuals.
I am psychodynamic psychotherapist, an experienced group facilitator and also run training events for therapist. I also use 'CBT' cognitive behavioural model and mindfulness if that what is required. Every person’s life situation is unique.
I have always looked at adversity and challenges as opportunities for growth, and as part of life's lessons. Having had a number of challenges and obstacles in my life, such as searching for purpose and meaning, I have had to conquer an unusual array of challenges. This takes time, determination, various resources and support, self-belief, creativity, and a helpful guide to navigate through life's often muddy waters.
- What is counselling?
Counselling is a unique time to engage in a process which can cultivate clarity, and help to unravel life's crises. For example, being separated from those we love and care about - whether through divorce or bereavement - can trigger a cycle of depression, anxiety, wrong decisions, substance abuse, vulnerability and years of indecisiveness and negative spirals. The therapeutic process cultivates awareness and insight and nurtures real change.
Therapy is an opportunity to identify areas where we feel blocked, over-whelmed and unable to make sense of life.The counselling relationship is a partnership to carry out an honest and internal investigation in a gentle, compassionate and non-judgemental way. It is an opportunity to be fully present with who we are, to understand how our minds and relationships work and function.
Psychodynamic therapy involves a process of a deep investigation on how early childhood effects our current relationships, sense of identity and belonging.

The first step is an initial assessment of your needs to determine whether counselling and psychotherapy is right for you. Our counselling sessions take place on a one-to-one basis at my private clinic, and last for 50 minutes. The aim of counselling is to create a safe, non judgmental, compassionate environment. All discussions are confidential, and I am bound by the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice.
There is no minimal time set for counselling; the amount of sessions are normally discussed early in the sessions, but this normally depends are your specific situation. I am also flexible with fee's if a person is able to demonstrate need and commitment to this process. I have a purpose build room for counselling on my grounds, and usually like to work with a fix but flexible time. At times I will be making some interventions to facilitate your learning about my model and orient your self.
I always look forward to meeting and working with new individuals and sharing their journeys with them.
I have trained in mindfulness with Breathworks and at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, and I worked with students at Brighton University and Birkbeck college, in teaching mindfulness as 'tools for life' and wellbeing. I am the one of the first people in the UK to use the forgiveness model in counselling; and run annual forgiveness retreats in London and on the south coast. The forgiveness model, which had been validated by the American Psychological Society is another tool and approach to with traumas, such as sexual abuse, neglect, identity, sexuality, separation and substance abuse.but every person’s life situation is unique.
