My Approach

Working from an integrative transpersonal perspective my approach is firmly rooted in my relationship with each individual client.

About Me

I see personal breakdown and crisis as events that point the way to changes that help us reach our potential. My work focuses on building and expanding individual strengths with the aim of achieving a balance in lifestyle and relationships.

I place the greatest value on my relationship with my clients and offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to explore your concerns.

I have many years training and experience in private practice and have studied and practised a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy techniques. In our initial appointment together I will talk with you about your individual concerns to determine the best approach for you.

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.

A list of employment difficulties might include increasing demands with tighter deadlines, unrealistic targets, difficult people, being in the wrong job. You can probably add to this list. It is easy for conscientious, hard workers to start feeling crushed by conflicting demands. My experience and specialist training can work with you as you untangle the issues and start seeing a future.
Whether I am seeing a couple or an individual, relationships are an intrinsic part of the work. My emphasis is on working with you as you improve their quality. We may focus on improving communication, the impact of different life stages, affairs, or some of the many other complexities of loving long term.
I have supervised individuals and groups for many years, working with therapists at all stages of development from new trainees to experienced professionals. My approach is collegial and relational. We each bring skills and experience to the work. Working together yields insight into the client’s process, suggesting strategies for the future.
Whether it is new or old trauma casts a long shadow, taking joy and energy from many aspects of life. Together we can gently consider your situation, working at your pace as you heal the wounds.
