About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes life can feel confusing and painful. It can help to talk in complete confidence with someone who will really listen, who wants to understand and who is trained to help you find a way through to discovering your own answers to the difficulties you are experiencing.

During therapy I would work together with you to help you understand your problems and what lies behind them. Gaining a deeper insight into the issues that are bothering you can enable you to (re)discover meaning amd purpose in your life and gain more satisfaction and joy in living. The aim is for you to find a greater sense of well-being and a better quality of relationship with those around you.

I offer face to face sessions of one hour which usually take place weekly. How many sessions depends on what you yourself feel you need. I have experience in providing both long and short term therapy for a wide range of problems, from severe trauma to just a sense of having lost one's way in life.

I qualified from the Amsterdam Institute of Psychosynthesis in 1996. On my return to the UK I did another 5 years formal psychotherapy training at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling in order to broaden and deepen what I can offer as a therapist.

Since 1991 I have followed a wide variety of self-development and profesional development trainings and I continue to do this as an important way of enriching my work.
