Originally a teacher, I have had many years of experience working with people in many contexts. I have lived and worked both in UK and in a Third World country. As a mum, student, teacher & therapist I appreciate the many complexities and challenges of life.

I am a very experienced and highly qualified Psychotherapist and specialise in Psycho-sexual & Relationship Counselling and also Bereavement counselling. I lecture counselling skills to degree level at a local university; run short counselling courses & run my own private counselling/ psychotherapy practice.

My style is holistic & relational, empathic & non-judgemental. As we explore your issues I aim to work in line with your needs ~ always being supportive and sometimes being challenging.

I work with a flexible and creative Integrative model (which includes aspects of psychodynamic, CBT and humanistic approaches) in a quiet and secure environment which, I hope, can be a safe haven for you in which to tackle your own issues and affect a change for a more fulfilled future.
