About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist offering short-term and open-ended therapy to individuals and couples. 

I focus on providing a professional, confidential and friendly space where clients can feel at ease to share and explore their difficulties and with my help, identify ways of overcoming them to their satisfaction. My focus is to assist clients in gaining greater understanding of themselves and in so doing, find solutions and enjoyment in their lives.

I have run my own private practice for over 10 years and have previously worked for an NHS Psychotherapy Unit and an NHS Primary Health Mental Health Trust.
