About me and my therapy practice
Whatever your issues are, I can offer you caring, empathetic, professional and effective therapy in a safe environment.
If you choose to work with me, I will draw upon my extensive training, skills, experience and strategies from a wide range of therapeutic theory and practice, as well my own learning from life to enable you to move forward.
You will experience a warm and genuine therapeutic relationship in our work together. I will integrate psycho-dynamic, systemic, cognitive behavioral as well as solution focused strategies to guide you to explore and understand whatever issues you come to counselling to resolve. This exploration and understanding will lead you to becoming empowered to find the solutions you need and make the changes necessary to live your life in a more peaceful and fulfilling way.
Life can be better for you than it is currently.......
It has improved for these clients with whom I have worked:

I have worked with Relate (the foremost relationship counselling organisation in the UK) for 28 years. During this time, I have provided successful therapeutic support to thousands of couples and individuals. I am now extending my skills to work in private practice.
My first session
Following an initial free telephone consultation, I will arrange a zoom, face to face, or telephone counselling session according to your preference.
This first session will be an assessment for you as a client to ascertain whether you feel we can work together. It is also an assessment in order for me to understand the issues you have come to counselling to deal with and whether I can work with those issues.
If you come as a couple I will arrange individual sessions following the first couple session.
If suitable to continue, we will then establish a contract for a certain number of sessions for you to meet the goals you want to achieve
