About me and my therapy practice
If you are considering the brave step of talking about things that may be becoming too difficult to endure by yourself, I aim to provide a warm, accepting welcome for you and your experiences. I will sensitively help you to explore them, without judgement.
I help with anxiety, depression, stress, panic, bereavement and specialise in rape and sexual abuse, including in childhood. My approach is empathetic, to gently work with the most private issues.
I am a MIND Credentialed Therapist and work at a specialist counselling service for rape and sexual abuse survivors.
Mindfulness based meditation techniques (where appropriate) can be used for calming and gaining insight.

Practice descriptionAs the key to progress in therapy is really about developing a relationship of trust with your counsellor, I choose to work in the person centred approach where your experiences are heard and respected as the most valuable element, in complete confidence. Your unique situation is the very centre of the counselling.
At the moment I am only working on Zoom, Skype or phone, but when we are able to work face to face there is free parking.
Short term working and mindfulness calming techniques are available.
The Mindfulness meditations I teach are simple, non-religious and along the lines of Jon Kabat-Zinn's westernised model of training.
I learned many techniques over 25 years from highly respected and qualified Meditation teachers, including The Dalai Lama, The Karmapa, Mingyur Rinpoche, Geshe Tashi Tsering, Martin Goodson, Garry Gelade and many others, in Europe and Asia.
I work mainly during office hours with some availability in the evenings and Saturday mornings at a higher rate.
My first session
I offer an exploratory session for £20 so you can see how we might work together. There is no obligation to take any more sessions.
However before I offer an exploratory session I would like to know I have the availability to offer more sessions at a suitable time for you in the event that you want to continue our work together.
