About me and my therapy practice

I have over 30 years experience in applied psychology. Supporting people to become more self aware and successfully navigate change in their work and personal lives. 

My background includes a variety of therapeutic and corporate environments. I worked therapeutically with offenders as a prison psychologist and as an organisational psychologist in both the private and public sector, specialising in psychological profiling, executive development, and coaching.

I am experienced in a number of approaches to learning and change and am an accredited coach. I also trained as an integrative, transpersonal counsellor and have worked at a hospice as a bereavement counsellor and in a low-cost clinic supporting clients with depression, anxiety and addiction amongst other issues.

I enjoy using my experience as a counsellor, coach and applied psychologist to provide people with practical, person-centred, flexible support that makes them feel safe and facilitates their development and growth.

Practice description

Seeking help is an act of courage and it’s natural to feel anxious about doing so but sometimes talking to family or friends isn’t sufficient or appropriate. I could provide the professional support that you need to find a way forward.

My broad experience in applied psychology, counselling and coaching enables me to be flexible and combine different approaches to meet your needs.

No problem is the same, so I take care to learn about you and to establish how (and for how long) we should work together. This could involve working for a short time (6-12 sessions) on a specific issue or working over a longer period to support self-exploration, uncover unhelpful patterns and build psychological flexibility and greater confidence in your ability to direct your future. We regularly review how things are going so that you are in control of your therapy.


My first session

I offer a free, no-obligation 15-minute chat over phone, email, text or online before starting work together.

This gives you a chance to see if you’d be comfortable working with me and learn about my counselling/coaching style, along with giving me the chance to learn about what has brought you to me.

If you want to go ahead, we will pencil in an agreed number of weekly sessions at a time that is mutually convenient, with the first assessment session lasting 75 minutes.
