The heart of my practice is careful and attentive listening. I speak in ordinary non-technical language and ask many simple questions. The setting is intimate and cooperative and conversations are confidential. The approach I take is rooted in a tradition known as existential phenomenology. This is a method designed to help whose daily lives have become problematic by clarifying their experience of themselves, their significant others, and the relationships between them and these others. It is investigative and demystifying. The aim is to facilitate reflective self-examination in order to bring about change. My fees are £90 for individuals, £100 for couples and £115 for families.
I am an individual, couple and family psychotherapist with 25 years experience working in both the NHS and in private practice. I have been employed as Adult Psychotherapist within four NHS departments am currently in full-time private practice. I am registered as an existential-phenomenological psychotherapist. The primary aim of my work is to increase understanding and deepen insight into patterns of experience and behaviour which clients identify as problematic and wish to clarify and resolve. This is the case whether you consult me as an individual, couple or family.
