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

You don’t need to understand fully what is causing the difficulty to make an appointment as 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 specialist 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.
