I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and BACP accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor. I trained as a Transactional Analysis psychotherapist and have a Counselling Diploma and Diploma in Transactional Analysis Practise.

People come to counselling and psychotherapy for lots of different reasons.  Clients have said that talking to someone objective, outside their daily lives, helps to make greater sense of problems they're facing.  Others have said just talking is a relief, and they feel the benefits of having a place to bring thoughts and feelings they don't feel comfortable talking about elsewhere.  It is a private space to bring whatever is important for you.

My role is to help you understand the meaning and value of what you bring with empathy, non-judgement, validation, and challenge where appropriate. As well as helping you build awareness about unhelpful patterns and realise  that you have the skills within you to make the changes you want. The direction and


length of therapy will be for us to work out together; I am guided by what you want and need.

I have extensive experience working with a wide range of issues including (though not limited to) alcohol and substance misuse issues including working with couples with these issues, long term health conditionsanxietydepression, change, loss and bereavementrelationship issues including affairs, betrayal, arguments and repeating patterns, childhood issuesabusedifficulties in managing strong feelings including anger or griefstress, and issues around identity.

I have experience working with individuals, and couples, for the short, medium and long-term.
