At certain times in our lives most of us can reach a place where things aren’t quite how we want them to be. It may be a feeling of ‘stuckness’ with a close relationship or at work. Or it may be a much deeper feeling of depression or despair. The counselling room is a unique space where you are free to explore – with non-judgemental guidance – what is going on in your life and how to review, revisit and perhaps change the things which are troubling you or holding you back.

Perhaps a specific issue has led you here today. Perhaps you would like to explore difficulties in your early life and how those are impacting on you today. We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Perhaps I'm the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Senior Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service. I have worked with a wide range of difficulties and have most experience in working with complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, mood management, and autism spectrum conditions.

At times life can be difficult. Sometimes it may feel like life isn’t moving forward and you keep repeating the same old patterns and nothing changes. You may be dwelling on the past or worried about the present or the future. You may just be in a place of general unhappiness where you just don’t know what to do. In developing a better understanding of ourselves, increasing our awareness, and learning about how we operate as people we are able to make fresh choices, see new perspectives, change things, move forward and find our full potential. I believe in peoples capacity to thrive when they are given the right conditions to do so.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

Reaching out for professional help is an important step in working towards the changes that you want. Whether the past is holding you back, the future fills you with anxiety or you are struggling with the 'here and now' I would like to offer my help. There is only so much we can manage alone and sometime our closest relationships are too close to help us see more clearly, to make sense of our confusion and provide a safe place to explore who we really are. That's why I'm here - to help you.

Are you living your best life? Life can be complicated. At times, we find ourselves struggling to cope with these challenges. The cost to us of living with unresolved issues can significantly impact upon our lives, on our sense of self, and on the relationships we have with the people around us. I am trained to work with unconscious material. Time and time again I witness how peoples relationships improve, and how their lives simplify, as their understanding and connection with themselves deepens. Therapy requires a curiosity of mind and a commitment to the process, but the rewards can be profound.
