About me and my therapy practice
I first became accredited in 2000, so I have been in practice for a very long time. I offer a safe and welcoming space for clients to address their concerns, some of which are so painful.

Attachment issues; anxiety/stress; trauma; alcohol and other drugs problems; bereavement and loss; crisis intervention; depression; debt; disability; family issues; redundancy; relationship problems; retirement; work place conflict
Serious mental health issues [eg severe OCD, ADD, Schizophrenia]. Any mental health issues concerned with ageing, especially dementia, memory problems, and family stress. Group work. Therapies offered. CBT; EMDR; Psychotherapy; Psychodynamic; Rogerian/Person Centred
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you. The sessions with you have been transformational. As you know there were times when I didn’t want to see you! But by the end of every session I always felt calmer and happier and another “Something“ had kicked into place. Your humour, wisdom and sensitivity has been really appreciated and made (at times) a challenging process quite enjoyable. Where I was and how I felt when I first sat in your chair to where I am now, and how I feel speaks volumes of the success of the sessions. So thank you for all your help and guidance to help me be who I am, and where I am now. (MP, female aged 37)
