About me

I have been working as a therapist for over 30 years, the majority of which has been in primary care within the NHS.
Through developing my work alongside patients, GPs and Psychiatrists I firmly believe therapists should have the knowledge and ability to integrate a variety of different therapeutic approaches – it is vital that 'the therapy fits the patient', not 'the patient fits the therapy'. Therefore I would describe myself, broadly, as a Humanistic therapist i.e. one who puts the client foremost in the relationship, but who draws on techniques from Rogers, Jung, psychoanalysis, NLP, clinical hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy LI (CBT) and Mindfulness.
I work primarily with adult individuals, but also have experience of working with children and adolescents, the elderly and couples.
I have set up, run and developed counselling/psychological therapy services in a number of GP surgeries; facilitated CBT psychoeducational groups; worked in an IAPT service; supervised other therapists and facilitated and led training days. Due to many years experience within healthcare settings I have particular interest in working with Doctors, Consultants and other medical professionals, also with emergency services.
I am passionate about my work, committed, energetic and enthusiastic but genuinely care about my clients and strive to work with warmth, intuition and sensitivity.
