About

I try to make therapy as available to as many people as I possible can. The cost of therapy can be quite steep so I keep my prices as low as I can so that more can access it. Therapy is about getting to where you want to be by making your own unique road map, so that you can use it again in the future if need be. I'm an Addiction Psychologist by trade, with 18 years of private practise behind me, but a lot of my work is helping many different age groups with problems such as OCD and PTSD etc. Please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat to see if i can be any help to you.
I offer one to one therapy but can bring in other relevant people that affect the client if this is required. Teenagers have a hard time and so I do a lot of work with this client group and include a therapy dog when I think it will help them. Equally men and women of many backgrounds have a hard time too, I'm here to help you also.
Please do give me a call. I offer a 5 minute initial chat on the phone. It's a good place to start.
