About me

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) working from my office in Newport, near Saffron Walden, Essex. I work mainly with adults but have experience of working with younger people from the age of 16yrs. The type of therapy I offer can be long term or short term depending on what is felt needed or possible at the start. I have experience of working with a wide range of emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship and family issues, PTSD, sexual abuse, trauma to name a few.  Sessions are 50 mins long and can be once or twice a week (or more if required) working face to face from my garden office or online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA(Hons) in Sociology, a certificate and foundation level Psychodynamic Counselling and a UCKP accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy qualification. 

I have many years of experience together with a previous career in probation services working with CBT, substance abuse programmes and victim support. 

I have worked in a psychiatric setting running an open psychotherapy group for inpatients.

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.
