Wounds are created in relationship and are healed in relationship. You are invited to meet me where you are, to be listened to deeply, with respect, warmth and acceptance.

People come to me for all sorts of reasons, the majority leave feeling more like themselves. Some people stay for a few weeks, some for months or years. All of them leave with a greater understanding of themselves, perhaps a change in perspective, sometimes transformed, sometimes healed.

I’ve worked in mental health and addiction for 30 years with diversions into prison health policy and NHS research. I am a sex positive, kink aware, LGBTQIA+ friendly counsellor and have a diverse range of clients.

About me

I have worked in mental health nursing, policy development & research for over 30 years in NHS hospitals, prisons, supported accommodation and nursing homes. As a psychodynamic counsellor I have experience in working with relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety, loss, childhood neglect, addiction, abusive relationships and many other adverse experiences.

I have a PGDip in Human Relations and Counselling, which is based in Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic theory and I am trained in Internal Family Systems to Level 2. I also have a Diploma in Mental Health Nursing and a Masters in Health Research.

I undertake continuing professional development and supervision in line with my professional register requirements (COSCA) & am fully insured.

What I offer

I offer online and in-person psychodynamic and Internal Family Systems Therapy on a weekly basis.

These approaches work well together and we can use one or other separately or combined.

I can provide integration of transpersonal experiences ie breathwork, deep meditation or pathworking, psychedelic  experiences or post-retreat work.

How Does it Work:

I will see you on the same day at the same time each week. It’s possible to reschedule if necessary.

My fee is £65 per session
Pay what you can afford spaces occasionally available
I charge for non-attendance.

My dog joins us in the therapy room. She is a rescue lurcher called Ziggy, a calming & loving presence.
