I am currently holding all my sessions online, either from the Centre or from my home, while Government restrictions around coronavirus are in place. I am open to taking new online clients.
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, working with a wide range of clients of all ages and backgrounds. I work in a warm and empathic way, shaping the therapy to your particular needs. I offer an introductory session in which I can listen to what you need and you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you. We can then agree to work together short or long-term, reviewing our progress along the way.
I have been working as a counsellor for more than seven years as a private practitioner and also within NHS and agency settings. I am a supervisor for other counsellors and also involved in training student therapists. I work with a wide range of issues (see above) and am committed to continuing professional training and development.
