About Me

I have been working as a psychotherapist for 27 years and I would like to thank you for taking time to look at my profile. Psychotherapy is one way of finding out more about yourself, who you are in this world, how you relate to others, what stops you from reaching your potential in areas of your life, what causes you to feel down or depressed, why you do not enjoy your sexual life, why losing weight, giving up smoking is so difficult. Psychotherapy can help you find meaning to your life, broaden your way of living and find ways of not getting stuck, holding grudges, and nursing anger. This work is crucial if you find yourself going through a tricky divorce or ending of a relationship; there is nothing worse than not being emotionally free of the person whom you have finished a relationship with.

I work with individuals, couples and groups.

I primarily work with people over a long period of time because I find this secures permanent change. Within my practice I use mindfulness, so enabling you to become aware of how you are thinking, feeling in your body and emotions and how your actions often relate to those ways of being.

I am a spiritual person and I enjoy working with people who also have a spiritual practice or are struggling with spiritual issues.

Mid-life crisis can be particularly difficult, whether a man or a women is experiencing it, because it can shatter our fundamental securities in life, home,and work, relationships. psychotherapy can provide a space where you and or your partner can explore the issues causing this terrifying experience.

I offer a free initial session, to see if we want to work together, like window shopping and I have several spaces where we a can negotiate a lower fee, so trying to make my practice available to most people.

I am happy to work with people on the telephone or via skype, once I have met you.

I look forward to hearing from you, via email or telephone. If you ring you are more likely to get an answer machine, please leave a message and I will get back to you a.s.a.p. Thank you.
