About me and my therapy practice


A dedicated, personable and self-motivated professional with extensive counselling experience.

Working in independent practice, for thirteen years, I am an Accredited Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist. 

People contact me for a variety of reasons – a long-term problem that doesn’t go away, an immediate crisis, or feelings of emptiness or lack of meaning to life.

I will provide the time to talk about the things in your life, that don't make sense or are making you feel sad or afraid. Therapy provides important space to review your situation, and how you live and experience your life.

Giving time and attention to your distress, in a non-critical environment, can lighten the load, and help you find new ways of thinking about yourself and the issues that you are facing. Whether as an individual, or couple, of any age, gender or sexuality, I will help you regulate, and manage difficult emotions as and when they arise.
