About me and my therapy practice
I am a professionally qualified therapist / psychologist who is working extensively within the local community, GP surgeries, hospitals, NHS and privately over the last 20 years. I provide counselling / psychotherapy and coaching services either in person, by telephone or video conferencing to suit your needs.
Therapy may be beneficial if there are any areas in your life that you would like to explore, issues that you would like to address or just need someone to talk to confidentially. Please feel free to contact me in confidence for a no-obligation discussion to find out how therapy could help you. A brief introductory discussion is free of charge and designed to see what you would like to work on and if I can be of help.
My work is based on the combined principles of integrative and interpersonal therapy. I also work using the framework of brief solution focused therapy where it is appropriate. Special areas of interest include: Relationship issues, Stress and Anxiety management, Bereavement and Trauma counselling.
I also provide counselling for other counsellors as well as for student therapists.
I am experienced in helping clients with a range of personal issues. There are many ways that therapy can be useful for individuals and couples and there is no limit to the kinds of issues that can be addressed. We will spend the initial appointment discussing your personal hopes and goals for therapy and examining any concerns that you may have. The first appointment will last about an hour and at the end of this meeting you will be able to decide if you would like to continue with further sessions.

- Personal relationship issues
- Stress and anxiety
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
