About

Many of my clients are adolescent and young adult males and their families, but all genders and age groups are welcome. Although I'm now in my middle age, I somehow retain an affinity with young people. I have worked in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for 10 years, gaining wide experience in providing individual therapy to children and adolescents with issues including depression, anxiety, emerging personality disorder, suicide risk, deliberate self-harm, poor self-esteem, adjustment disorders, ASD, ADHD, school refusal and gender dysphoria. Call me to discuss your needs and explore if I'd be a good fit.
I've been a Counsellor since 1992, a Registered Mental Health Nurse since 1996, a Family Therapist since 2016 and a Psychologist since 2022. My broad experience in the mental health and therapy sectors enables me to form relationships with clients from diverse backgrounds and provides me with a rich store of techniques and strategies my clients benefit from.
My clients view me as trustworthy and approachable. I believe that a therapeutic relationship based on mutual trust and respect is the best vehicle to deliver evidence-based interventions appropriate to the individual needs of each client. I'm well versed in many approaches to individual therapy and family therapy and apply the best fit to each client.
