Life can be painful; but you don’t have to endure it alone. You might need someone you can really talk to. I am trained to listen. I can help you to improve your most important relationships; namely with yourself and your family and friends. Together we can work with your thoughts and feelings to change your unwanted patterns of behaviour.
Experiential, MBTI, Object Relations, Psychoanalytic, Psychodrama, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis
My approach is psychodynamic. That means, together my clients and I work to understand their internal conflicts and concerns. They learn to understand and tolerate parts of themselves that they have not been able to know about before therapy. Meaningful changes take time so we work slowly and carefully to uncover things that are known but not thought about before. This can only happen in a non judgemental environment where people feel safe enough to talk about themselves.
I am highly committed to my work and self development. For this reason I :
attend regular supervision
attend on-going peer supervision
present at conferences and seminars
read widely and discuss new developments
I have worked with people for 50 years, the last 10 years in counselling and psychotherapy. My practice includes a wide range of people who present with many couples issues. Over time, in small steps, they are on better terms with themselves and others. My clients learn to talk freely about themselves in a safe confidential enrolment.
Before becoming a psychotherapist I ran parenting groups and counselled parents for 10 years. I have also consulted to organisations on organisational behaviour, led personal growth groups, designed and run training sessions in all areas of communication and management.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, Relationship Therapist
I have always informally counselled people but in mid-life, after a career in teaching, and benefitting enormously from my own therapy, I gained formal qualifications in psychodrama and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
I work with people to understand their complex emotions and layers of the unconscious. In a non judgmental relationship people learn to face unknown parts of themselves. As they get to know themselves, they find hope, accept who they are and learn to tolerate a wide range of emotions...
