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.
Mindfulness based meditation techniques (where appropriate) can also be used for calming and gaining insight.
I am a MIND Credentialed Therapist and work at a specialist counselling service for rape and sexual abuse survivors.

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 and in complete confidence. Your unique situation is the very centre of the counselling. I listen without judging what you tell me and with unconditional positive regard for you, seeking to understand your side of things, your frame of reference. This is a very healing process.
At the moment I am working face to face and there is free parking. We can also work on Zoom, Skype or phone, when necessary or if you prefer.
I learned many meditation techniques over 25 years from highly qualified Meditation teachers including HH The Dalai Lama, but the Mindfulness meditations I teach clients are simple, non-religious, along the lines of Jon Kabat-Zinn's westernised model of training.
I work mainly during office hours with some availability in the evenings and Saturday mornings at a higher rate.
My first session
