About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for visiting my page. In these challenging times, many people are being mindful of their mental well-being. To respond to the current situation, I am offering telephone/skype/zoom sessions for £35, with immediate availability, at a time that suits you. 

I believe Counselling can be highly effective in enabling all of us to deal with personal issues that many of us encounter at times in our lives. 

The way I work is to enable you, the client, to lead the agenda and to explore any areas that you would like to. I can offer short term or longer term work, particularly using Person-centred and Psychodynamic methods, according to your requirements. I work with individuals and couples. 

I will offer a complimentary introductory meeting, which can help you decide if you wish to proceed with counselling.  

I am trained to Post Graduate Level 5 Psychotherapeutic Counselling (CPCAB) and have 30 years experience of working in the financial industry (Investment banking.)
