During this very difficult time of Lockdown, due to Covid-19, I would like to assure anyone thinking of getting in touch that I am here to offer support, however you may be feeling.  You may be totally confused as to how you feel due to these unprecedented time of uncertainty.

I am currently working with clients by telephone and Microsoft Teams Video Call Service.

At this time, I am offering a discounted fee for anyone working on the frontline and experiencing extreme stress.  Please mention this during initial phone contact.

About me and my therapy practice

Often in life, we may find ourselves in situations that are difficult to manage.  My aim is to support you in exploring your thoughts and feelings by providing a warm, safe, empathic and confidential space where you will not be judged or told what to do.

I am interested in how behaviour we learned in childhood may often seem not to work so well for us in adulthood.  We may often seem to repeat 'the same old patterns' in life, such as in our relationships.  I believe it is possible to explore and trace back to the time when those decisions were made and to implement new decisions and behaviours.

Practice description

My primary training has been in Transactional Analysis, which allows me to use an array of techniques and theories, incorporating CBT and Gestalt, as well as Psychodynamic and Person Centered approaches.  I believe this allows for a more flexible way of working, ensuring the individuality of the client's needs are met.
