About me and my therapy practice

As an Integrative psychotherapist I call upon many theories to give you, my client the very best possible practice

If you think the time is right to contact someone who has the time to really listen to you, please have a little look around the site and contact me if and when you feel ready.

Counselling is a way to enable people to move on with their lives by being able to discuss your issues in a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental way. It is about enabling you to make the right choices for you - not about "telling you what to do".

Depending on what you wish to work through, typically between six and twelve session are required. For much deeper matters or multiple issues, more sessions can be beneficial.



Practice description

Counselling is usually done face to face however in a world where sometimes people really cannot make firm appointments (members of the emergency services and forces for example), counselling by telephone works really well.

Although many of my clients have been fairly conventional in their lifestyle choices, some people might be interested to know that I am a very non judgemental professional even if your lifestyle choices are very unconventional.

My experience has been deepened by clients who have presented with varied issues and problems including transgendered clients who are questioning their journey, enjoying their journey and completed their journey and of course their spouses who come for couples counselling throughout transition.

I also have gay and lesbian clients, again who may be unsure of their sexuality and just need someone who is non judgemental to listen without prejudice to their fears and anxieties and their hopes for the future.

My work brings me into contact with couples who live a very different lifestyle to the 'norm': those who prefer an open relationship, a polyamorous one and some clients who prefer a celibate life.

If you feel counselling may be what you are looking for then please contact me for an informal chat.
