About me and my therapy practice
Life can be challenging at times. Whatever your difficulties or concerns, talking to a trained psychotherapist will provide you with much relief and support. I combine extensive knowledge of psychology and therapeutic skills in my work with you. I can help you understand yourself better and develop more helpful ways of dealing with your difficulties. I will offer support and encouragement to help you achieve your goals. People describe me as warm and easy to talk to.
My Scope Of Practice:
Coaching: Career, Life and Developmental
I work in a humanistic way, which means that I will support you to freely explore your whole life experience over the past, present and future. My main framework is known as Existential Psychotherapy, which helps people to live a more satisfying life, on their own terms, with the responsibility and freedom that comes with it.

I have worked with people who have suffered a broad range of life and mental health difficulties, in the NHS and other counselling services. I have previously had a corporate career and understand the challenges and stress that comes from it.
