My Approach

I offer a safe, confidential, and welcoming approach to all. Your concerns will be listened to thoughtfully with attention and respect. You will
receive honest feedback. I believe that you are best helped by an interactive, creative, collaborative approach to resolving your problems,
building upon your strengths, your positive values, and helping you move out of those areas where you are blocked, frustrated, anxious, depressed, unable to see yourself and others clearly, and feeling that the problems that you have, sexual or otherwise, will never go away. At the moment, given the rise in coronavirus cases, I am only working online (via Zoom).
This member has completed UKCP Covid-19 Online Working Guidance.

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 see the work here as helping clients move from addictive behaviors which provide a poor inner security to a reparative approach based upon a secure attachment, arrived at through the security of the therapeutic relationship.
I see the therapeutic work here as working through issues of guilt, shame and stigma as these present themselves.
I seek in the therapeutic work to help clients be more aware and understanding of their anxieties and fears, and consequently becoming better at managing them.
I am particularly interested in helping individuals and couples work through issues connected with depression, which often appear as a kind of deadness. I see the work here as helping clients move from this deadness to liveliness,
I am interested in supervising therapists, especially in the psychosexual sphere. My trainings include: Centre for Personal and Professional Development, Whittington Hospital NHS Trust, Certificate in clinical supervision, 1996. The Bethlem Royal Hospital and Maudsley Hospital supervision and consultation course. Certificate, 1973. Every year I update my supervision skills in workshops, as required by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists for supervisor accredition.
