About me and my therapy practice


Working in independent practice, since 2006, I am an Accredited Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist.

The aim is to help you gain insight, and heighten self awareness. As well as problem solving, the approach is educational, preventative and growth-promoting.

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.

I am encouraging, and sensitive, to your experience of the therapy relationship, and work at your pace. 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.
