I have practised as a counsellor and psychotherapist for many years in a variety of settings, including a group medical practice, a London Conservatoire, and a Natural Health Centre, having previously worked as a performer, as a senior educationalist, and as a consultant to commercial organisations.
I am qualified as a musician (FTCL) and in education (MA), and received my therapeutic training at the Metanoia Institute in London where I gained the MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. I also hold post-graduate diplomas in the supervision of other therapists and in working therapeutically with children and young people. I include Mindfulness and elements of CBT in my practice and am committed to work with clients being a joint endeavour.
Duration of therapy varies enormously. You might come with a specific issue which is dealt with relatively quickly. However, if you want to significantly alter patterns that you have taken a lifetime to establish, therapy will be a longer process.
I see therapy as a means of helping you to more fully experience life, which includes satisfying and nurturing relationships, confident self-expression and deciding what your future could hold.
My practice includes individuals and couples from the young to the very elderly. I work face-to-face, by telephone and on Skype. My fees for individual therapy are from £60 per hour and from £80 per hour for couples. Concessions are available.
