I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with many years of experience working with people just like you.
I've helped many, many people to feel a lot better about themselves, their families and close relationships as well as to finding that their careers benefit and I look forward to working with you too.
I have particular expertise in working people who are trying to cope with difficult feelings such as low self-esteem and lack of confidence, anxiety or depression. My first degree was in history and this perspective informs my understanding of how a family's history can have an impact on subsequent generations.
You will find that my approach is characterised by a spirit of compassion and a desire for non-judgemental understanding of you and the difficulties you are facing. You don't need to have a 'mental health problem' to benefit from therapy, just a willingness to know that you need to access help from a caring and skilful therapist.
I have been a registered member of the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) since 2009. I am a member of the Metanoia Institute and the European Association of Transactional Analysts (EATA). I adhere to their codes of ethics and am bound by their complaints procedures.
