About me and my therapy practice

Experience is the strongest asset of any counsellor - and we have a LOT of experience in this practice. Over the last 18 years, this well-regarded service has gained a good reputation for gentle but effective help for people in all sorts of difficulties - in particular, bereavement, depression, anxiety, relationship breakdown and life-crisis episodes.

I think people are best helped by transparent therapists who are sincere, real and kind. I limit my caseload to ensure everyone gets the support they deserve.

Counselling can transform complex emotional and practical log-jams into manageable issues. Sometimes, it is the most helpful thing to know you can just go and be heard by someone who cares. I bring not only a vast experience as a psychotherapist, but also a knowledge borne out of my experience as a client, in years past.

I have managed a voluntary sector mental health service since 2004, as well as running a private practice. I have been a supervisor and trainer to since 2002. I have a wide network of similarly experienced colleagues. If I cannot help, I usually know someone else who can.
