About me and my therapy practice

Due to the Coronavirus, I am encouraging clients to have telephone or online (through Skype or Zoom) sessions. We are experiencing an anxious and uncertain time at the moment and the need to talk about our concerns might be greater than normal. I understand the impact recent measures might have on people, in particular financially, so I am offering my usual 50 minute session for £35.00 rather than £50.00, or a 30 minute session for £20.00. We can meet as a one-off, or if further support is needed, then this can be agreed when we first speak.

I am skilled at working with anxiety, depression, identity issues and relationship concerns, to name a few. I work with members of the LGBT community and understand the uniqueness of growing up LGBT. I am experienced in the cycle of addiction and the difficulty of giving up something which has been a reliable way of shielding us from pain. I can help you understand this cycle and look at ways of leading a life which is free from compulsive drinking, eating, sexual behaviour or pornography. 

I support women and men who have experienced Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), including controlling and abusive behaviour.

I look forward to seeing how I can help with what is causing you difficulty or holding you back. If you are simply feeling 'stuck' and need to explore your feelings around where you are in life, talking it through with me can be a freeing and clarifying process.
