About Me

With a free initial consultation and a background of over twenty years experience, I provide a range of confidential, affordable psychotherapy services for:

  • Individuals
  • Couples and
  • Parents and infants

I also offer supervision and reflective practice for other professionals, staff teams and organisations.

Since 1992, I have been professionally involved in the mental health sector, and worked as a counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor and counselling trainer. My work has been wide-ranging, so that I have built up a substantial body of experience through:

  • Private practice in London (formerly in Hampshire),
  • Hospital-based NHS out-patient psychotherapy departments where I have worked as an NHS psychotherapist, group analyst and supervisor with working age adults.
  • Counselling agencies such as icap (Immigrant Counselling and Psychotherapy), CCTS (Central Counselling and Training Service) and others where I have offered counselling, supervision and training.

About psychotherapy

Our experience of life, especially through childhood, can affect how we think, feel and relate, both towards ourselves and others.

Some of the impact of life experience can be straight forward to manage. More subtle personal consequences, of which we are less aware, can also occur. We go along with life and then find ourselves feeling and behaving in ways which we don’t like and don’t understand, but which we feel unable to change.

How can psychotherapy and analysis help? Speaking regularly with a trained psychotherapist or analyst can help us understand ourselves. This develops our self-awareness so that we can come to comprehend:

  • who we are as individuals,
  • what our life experiences and our relationships mean to us, and
  • the ways in which our particular experiences may be affecting us.

Sometimes personal and relational problems arise through unconscious responses to unexpected life events (such as a bereavement, a health problem or redundancy). A talking therapy can help us come to terms with change and loss. With time, we can learn to adjust to new circumstances, bringing a renewed sense of vigour and interest in life.
