COVID-19 Update: Until further notice all counselling sessions with me will be on-line using professional Zoom video conferencing with end to end data encryption for added security, this is simple to use and adds no extra cost to you. However, you will need a Tablet, smart phone, laptop or PC/Mac with a camera, microphone and stable internet connection.

I understand this an inconvenience so to try and make things easier I also am offering an on-line booking utility where you can book a session with me at your convivence. The booking will not be approved until we have made contact and then confirmation will follow accordingly if accepted. To book on-line click here.

Enquiries can of course still be made via my website or by phone see links at the top of this page.


Sometimes the fear of being judged can hold us back from seeking help and advice, and in resisting we fail to be true to ourselves and embrace the possibilities a positive practical step like counselling can offer to initiate change and alleviate difficulties in our daily lives. It may be also that we know something’s not quite right but fail to make ourselves a priority until difficulties force us to seek support, whichever is the case, I invite you to take a moment to consider a change, whether you know what brings you to seek help or simply wish to explore things that concern you.

I practice a Relational and Psychodynamic form of Transactional Analysis (TA) which is integrative and draws upon Humanistic, Psychoanalytic and Cognitive Behavioural approaches, this permits me to tailor therapy to your individual requirements. The key TA belief being that we are all capable of change.

I am professionally trained at the Metanoia Institute in London, which has a heritage spanning 30 years and is internationally recognised for providing high quality training in the psychological therapies.  I am also Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy with rooms in the Swindon & the Ogbournes, which are easily reachable from the surrounding area.
