My Approach

Attachment Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist
I work both short term and long term and take my cue from the person I am seeing.
Some people come with a specific problem and some with a feeling that things have not been right for a long time.
The research shows that the best predictor of a good therapy is the working relationship between the therapist and client and so the first sessions are often for both of us to see if we are a good “fit”.

About Me

I have worked as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist since the mid 1990s. I trained as an Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the Bowlby Centre in London having trained as a Counsellor in Cambridge initially.
I am a member of the Forum for Independent Psychotherapists (FIP) a national organisation, part of the UKCP, and was its Chair for several years.
I am also a member of The Bury Practice for Counselling and Psychotherapists, a group of therapists working mainly in Bury St Edmunds but also Ely, Isleham and further East in Suffolk. We include Child Psychotherapists, CBT and Art therapists.
I prefer to work face to face in my Consulting Room in Isleham but understand that currently a phone call is often the only option.
My consulting room in Isleham (between Newmarket and Ely) is disabled friendly and it is very easy to park.
It is very private and quiet and looks out over the large garden.

I work with

  • 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.

As an Attachment based therapist working with Trauma has been a large part of my work.
Age related issues can include the challenges of moving from one stage of life to another - whether into parent hood or into middle or late age.
Depression is a catch all word that covers so much from low mood and anxiety to prolonged lengthy distress. Talking therapies are often helpful here - there is no magic wand but the act of talking to someone who has no agenda and is outside family and friends is itself therapeutic It is confidential and non judgemental.
I am interested in disability and chronic health conditions and the interface between medical, psychological and societal issues.
I have a Supervision Diploma from the Guild of Psychotherapists. I provide supervision not only for Counsellors and Psychotherapists but also for the medical profession, the clergy and for other professions.
