I draw on aspects of a variety of talking therapies to offer an individual and personal approach for those seeking counselling and psychotherapy. By using integrated methods I aim to meet individual needs in order to offer a truly holistic approach to mental health.
I work with a variety of emotional, psychological and relationship issues including anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue as well as trauma and loss.
The sessions are approximately one hour long and may include a number of methods, alongside the talking therapy which are tailored on an individual basis.
“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?”

I started practising Stress Management within the clinic in 1990. Whilst still working in the sphere of stress management, I sought a deeper understanding of the psychological process in relation to mental health.
This led me to undertake my degree in Psychology followed by my second degree in Counselling. The additional education and more specialist training in various schools of psychology allowed me to expand the repertoire of therapeutic techniques and now practice Counselling and Psychotherapy for a wide range of emotional, psychological and relationship issues.
