My Approach

My training was existential phenomenological
I an not the therapist who sits silently nodding from time to time, I like to clarify your situation with you and perhaps ask questions, so my first task is to help you to feel at ease. I very much respect the bravery of people who decide to come to talk about their problems.

About Me

I started my therapy training at 55 years of age, before that I had training and involvement in painting and music.
Talking to the right person can help, that's my definition of psychotherapy. You can contact me to arrange a telephone chat so that you can decide whether I'm the person with whom you can feel safe and at ease to talk freely with.

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.

Support and and help with acceptance of the new situation, which can often be complex.
Couple therapy
Supervision of trainee and qualified therapists. I dislike the term supervision as I see it as a useful discussion between two therapists.
