Hello and a warm welcome. I offer online video-conferencing sessions (on the Zoom platform), allowing me to see clients from the whole of the UK. Do get in touch if you would like further information.

I am an experienced Relationship and Psychosexual Therapist and I offer therapy for Couples and Individuals, UK wide.  I am an Intermediate student in Somatic Experiencing® (with SOS Internationale) and may offer relevant SE® protocols in our work together, if helpful to you. I provide a safe space for you to explore what’s on your mind – this could be something that is troubling you or it could be something you wish to further understand or you may feel your relationship has hit crisis point.

Your exploration may include relationship issues such as loss of connection or loss of intimacy but similarly your exploration may be around other subjects such as addictions; affairs; anxiety; family; finances; illnesslife changes (such as menopause; the arrival of a new baby; children leaving home; divorce; separation); loss (such as bereavement of loved ones, including pets); redundancy; self-esteem; stress; work-related issues.

The space I provide is confidential; free of judgement and it is safe; your well-being is my top priority. Often, clients want to know how long they can expect to be in therapy for – I believe this is something you will instinctively come to know as the therapeutic process unfolds.  We will work at a pace that suits each individual, and so there isn’t a one size fits all answer. NB, I Practice privately on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and am able to respond on those days.

If I think the therapy I am able to offer will not meet your current needs, I will aim to work collaboratively with you, to identify an alternative service (if relevant) that better suits you.

I abide by the ethical framework set out by BACP (https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/ethical-framework-for-the-counselling-professions/) and COSCA(http://www.cosca.org.uk/docs/23.pdf) and my approach is Integrative, which means I have multiple “tools” in my therapeutic “toolbox”, in order to find the most productive way of working with each individual client or couple.

I am GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679] compliant and as such, my written and verbal contracts with you will fully explain this.

Please note, I do not operate an emergency service, so if you are in crisis or contemplating taking your own life, there are services that can help you 24/7, please see our HELP page
