About

Life can be difficult at the best of times. Sometimes it's plain overwhelming. If you're reading this you may be feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or maybe just a bit confused. It's not easy being you. And yet, you are unique. There's no-one on Earth the same. That means you probably already hold the key to making the changes you want to make in your life. Everyone has the capacity for growth, and for the meaningful connection with others we need to achieve that. But we also need someone who will listen to us without judgment, help us feel safe and understood, and make sense of what is going on for us so we can move forward.
I integrate elements of several psychotherapies, and try to tailor things to what you feel will suit you. I'm interested in anxiety and the "inner critic" many of us can identify within ourselves, and in compassionate mind training. I also have a special interest in supporting conservationists, as I have lived experience of the stresses that work brings.
None of my theoretical or clinical knowledge is any use unless people feel comfortable talking to me. So I try to be real, down-to-earth and honest. I don't tell people how to live their lives. But I'm deeply interested in their life stories, and that includes yours, if you would like to tell me some of it. Call me any time for an initial chat at no charge.
