About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited member of BACP with more than 18 years of experience in education and mental health. I have lived and worked for significant periods on 4 continents. so I am highly experienced in multi-cultural situations including working with foreign overseas workers/teams and NGO’s. 

My counselling approach is person-centred and integrative. Primarily working from a psychodynamic approach, I integrate other methods such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Narrative Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Individuals.  When working with couples, I use EFT for Couples. My approach is underpinned by Attachment Theory. 

I work with individuals with a broad range of psychological presentations including, anxiety and depression, grief and relationship difficulties. I have a special interest in working with couples and with recovered addicts exiting 12-step programs.
