Since 2006 I have helped individuals and couples, who are struggling with unresolved feelings, relationships or behaviours that are holding them back. 


I work across a wide range of areas and interests: lifestyle sex and relationship issues, “existential emptiness”, loss of meaning, bereavement and loss, trauma, mood disorders (anxiety and depression), past abuse (addiction and prevention of relapses), ageing and later life concerns.

Of course the root cause can be any number of specific problems - some of which may have been buried because they're just to painful to think about, some of which may make you feel embarrassed. I am sensitive to these feelings.

A rewarding experience.

As well as problem solving, the approach is educational and growth-promoting. Gaining insight, and identifying recurring patterns, can help you make positive choices and leave you feeling  more present and involved in your relationships. If that's where you would like to be, please get in touch.

Services and Specialisms.


I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) www.bacp.co.uk , and a member of COSRT (College of Sex and Relationship Therapists www.cosrt.org.uk) Both organisations place an emphasis on the importance of working ethically, including the prioritisation of confidentiality.
