There are many different reasons why someone might want help from counselling.

You don’t need to understand fully what is causing you a difficulty to make an appointment. The nature of the problem might become clearer during the first meeting.

Counselling provides an opportunity to work through difficulties in a confidential, non-judgmental environment.

I provide a psychotherapy service for individuals who are seeking to talk through their problems in a confidential environment. Additionally, I offer relationship and psychosexual psychotherapy for couples who wish to explore difficulties within their relationship.

Sometimes counselling may not be the most beneficial and helpful next step for people and I discuss this at the start of any introduction to assess what is best for the patient.

I am a trainer and private practitioner with many years ​​​experience in NHS practice and I specialise in areas of emotional and psychological health.  I have lectured and tutored in counselling and psychotherapy at several academic institutes and universities.  I also provide clinical supervision to individuals, students and organisations

I work within the ethical guidelines of my accrediting bodies.
