About me and my therapy practice
I am a Counsellor & Relationship Therapist with 25 years’ experience working with people going through difficult times. Trained with Relate, I work with individuals, couples & families, believing that everyone has their own unique experience of life & understanding of what has led to their current situation. I do not know what your current situation is, but I am guessing that you or someone close to you is: experiencing confusion, sadness, anxiety or fear; facing a dilemma; struggling with a relationship; dealing with illness or bereavement.
You may have been grappling with the situation for a while or it may just have come upon you, but the fact that you are visiting this website tells me you would like help & support. My aim is to provide a safe place to talk openly & in confidence. My hope is that together we will find a way to look differently at what you are going through & for you to gain some relief from this. Whatever gender, race, sexuality or class you identify as, whatever your physical or mental health or disability, any religion or none, I will listen & talk to you with respect, honesty & compassion.
I offer expertise gained from the 20 years I worked as a Social Worker in Adult Social Care as well as the 13 years I have worked as a Therapist. I work for Relate alongside my private practice & have worked in hospices, hospitals & the community with adults experiencing illness, disability & emotional distress. Over the years, I have gathered a range of knowledge & techniques. I tailor these to the individual, couple or family I am talking with & to what is troubling them. However, my overall practice is guided by the integration of Systemic & Psychodynamic Theory. Put simply, this means that I am curious about what is happening to you at present as well as what experiences you may have had in childhood & in your life up to now.
