I have also worked as a counsellor for an IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) service, working with clients referred by the NHS.
I work with individuals and couples, providing both short term counselling, and longer term, open ended psychotherapy. Whatever brings you for counselling or psychotherapy, I'll work with you towards a better understanding of yourself and your needs, your options and your own resources, to enhance your capacity to live in a way which is satisfying for you.

I work with a wide range of issues including:
