About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor and see clients on a 1 to 1 basis in both Kingsclere, Tadley and in people’s homes. Do you find you have a lot of people around you but no one you can talk to because you don't want them to worry? You may not have anyone around you who you can talk to. I can give you the time and space to talk about whatever is worrying you, and somewhere you will not be judged.

The psychodynamic approach is derived from psychoanalysis, focusing on immediate problems to try and find a quicker solution. Together we think about these difficulties and how past experiences may have shaped current behaviour. I will listen, empathise, encourage and challenge a different way of thinking.. In time you will be able to be in control of things rather than being controlled by them.

Get in touch by either calling, emailing or through my website. I will contact you and arrange for us to meet for an initial consultation. Here we can discuss what is troubling you and give us the opportunity to see whether we might be able to work together. We will then agree on a day and time and we can start the process.

I work in Kingsclere, there is parking nearby and a bus stop outside with bus routes to both Newbury and Basingstoke. We have disabled access and the use of a room on the ground level if needed.

I also work in Tadley at the Link, Tadley Community Centre and there is parking outside. My room is on the ground level and there is disabled access.

Kingsclere is only 6 miles from Tadley, 8 miles from Newbury, 8.5 miles from Thatcham, 6.2 miles from Overton, 8.6 miles from Whitchurch, 8.7 miles from Basingstoke as well as all the surrounding villages. I am able to travel further afield to visit people unable to travel.

Practice description

Whilst my practice is built on face to face where possible, due to the situation we all find ourselves at the moment I am also able to offer online and telephone counselling to anyone who needs it. The most important thing is to be there in what ever way we can and to have someone who is able to listen and support you through these difficult times. I am able to offer concessionary rates too so I can reach more people that are self isolating, and becoming isolated at home.

Clients I work with

Adults, Couples, EAP, Older adults

How I deliver therapy

Home visits, Long-term face-to-face work, Online counselling, Short-term face-to-face work, Telephone counselling, Time-limited
