Psychotherapy & Counselling in person and online.

Personal Statement:

Over time I have closely witnessed how acutely people can suffer and how diminished their lives feel as a result. Post Covid that suffering has increased as a result of the unfolding economic and societal challenges we are facing.

Years of training and experience have gone into treating the issues listed below. I also supervise experienced therapists and examine in London.

Whatever has prompted you to make the call, please be assured that your enquiry will be treated confidentially and sensitively.


  • Anxiety
  • Depression [episodic/ chronic] 
  • Abuse [historic / current]
  • Inappropriate Internet use [including CPS / Police cases]
  • ADHD & ASD ~ strategies
  • Trauma & PTSD
  • Disordered eating [Pre-acute treatment]
  • Life crises [Divorce / bereavement]
  • Gender identity, sexuality
  • Relationship issues, couples' / marriage problems
  • Bereavement, terminal illness, complicated grief
  • Lack of purpose & meaning
  • Cancer support

I know it's not easy to make the call. Please be assured your call will be treated confidentially and respectfully. If I am in session, you will be directed to a message service, please clearly give your name and number and I will call back at the earliest opportunity.

As a psychotherapist I work with people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds. A long term member of UKCP, I work respectfully with difference and prioritise ethical practice.

Speaking in Confidence

Psychotherapy and counselling take place in a safe and confidential manner. Thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and understood from a different perspective in order to integrate and lay the past to rest.

Counselling or Psychotherapy ?


With counselling, the focus is on co-creating a program to tackle

'here and now' problems, taking account of personal history and the life situation. That focus relates to achievable outcomes appropriate to the time frame. 


In psychotherapy, in addition to the above I aim to integrate early experiences which have led to unhelpful emotional states and insecure relationships. I focus on experiencing a more grounded sense of self.

Couples' Therapy

Couples work focusses on the couple's function as a relational unit. All parties will be fully heard and facilitated impartially towards a clearer understanding of themselves and their partners.

Working safely and with competence:

As a long standing registered member of UKCP, I ensure that I am always working within my sphere of expertise. This includes many additional trainings and years of experience. If I ever sense that a person could benefit more from a colleague's specialism, I hold a useful referral database.

Monitoring Ethical Bodies:

  • The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis.The Metanoia Institute. EATA & ITA
  • Qualifications and memberships
  • MSC and Diploma in Relational T. A. Psychotherapy issued by the Metanoia Institute in West London
  • Registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy ~ Reg number 09160703
