My Approach

I am an analytically trained psychotherapist . I have worked with individuals extensively and also have solid experience of group work and couples therapy. I have worked with anyone who has wanted to understand the difficulties in aspects of their lives and offer a humane, supportive and empathic experience. I provide a space where the client can safely speak about the internal conflicts which are impeding their life and to reflect fully on these as they repeat in therapy to find more successful ways of progressing in life. People typically have talked about eating disorders, sexual abuse in childhood, sexuality issues and a whole range of other issues.

About Me

I have worked int he NHS as a therapist for 30 years and had a successful private practice for 15 years. I have worked as a teacher in a secondary school and in the Probation Service in my younger years which has given me an excellent grounding in life and it’s challenges.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Individuals
  • Private healthcare referrals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I am very interested in working with those facing the challenges of ageing; losing partners, illness, experiencing new vulnerabilities
I understand the very individual nature of bereavement and how this can open up other vulnerable areas of the personality
I work with depression and have proven ability to hold clients in a place to understand and in time move through this debilitating issue
I have extensive experience of working with trauma and have been involved with developing courses for professionals in the area of sexual abuse
Many of my clients come to me with relationship difficulties and we are able to reflect on the origins of these difficulties as they repeat in the therapy in order to find new , more successful ways of moving forward
