In my Counselling Psychology Practice I provide counselling and psychotherapy to adults of any age with emotional, psychological or relationship issues that are causing distress, or to those who are seeking more in-depth understanding of personality issues that may be holding them back.

The starting point is establishing a relationship of trust in which together we make a careful assessment of your difficulties and their context, and apply psychological knowledge so as to establish a shared understanding and plan for therapy.

For the most frequently occurring mental health problems – depression and anxiety –  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) may be the most appropriate approach.

Work-related stress, relationship breakdown, trauma, loss, identity issues and low self-esteem may also be contributors for which you may be seeking counselling; or a more general sense that all is not well, that you wish to explore means of creating greater fulfilment or purpose to your life.

I have particular interests in life transitions, adaptation to physical health problems, infertility and end-of-life care,

The length and approach to therapy is tailored to your individual needs, and my training as a Counselling Psychologist, together with over 15 years of experience in the NHS (in a Psychology Service and a local GP Surgery), the voluntary sector and private practice, enables me to provide this.

I also offer supervision to other practitioners both whilst in training and post-qualification. In supervision the aim is to provide a setting in which therapists can grow in confidence and competence. Through building a relationship with the supervisor as a trusted colleague, the therapist can safely reflect on all dimensions of their practice.
