About Me

Taking the first step in seeking help when life is becoming overwhelming can be daunting. I offer a safe, caring, confidential space to help you heal and recover, when life feels this way. I hold UKCP Full Clinical Psychotherapist membership, along with BACP full membership.

Over many years I have worked with clients with anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship problems, midlife crisis', low self-esteem, compulsive people pleasing (co-dependency) amongst many other issues, who over time have made tremendous improvements. My approach to therapy is non-judgemental, empathic and most of all, friendly, helping you to explore and heal wounds from past and current issues.
I provide a completely confidential empathic space to explore whatever is troubling you. I offer a free trial session to let you gauge whether you are comfortable with me, and we can work in person, by Zoom, or by phone.

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.

Addiction is a complex issue that needs focussed attention. I have spent several years one to one with clients at a national addiction charity, and also was deputy counselling manager for a respected day rehabilitation charity.
Working with anxiety is a keen interest of mine. I have found considerable success in creating calm by working with your anxiety, rather than trying to banish it.
Depression can be very debilitating. Together we can work towards a more content you by making some positive changes.
Family issues can be very difficult to live with. We can work together, looking at where they stem from, how we may adopt a certain perspective or role in our family, and ways to step aside from these.
Along with other addictions, prescription drug dependence is a key area I work with.
