As you will see from my photograph, I am a mature aged psychologist with years of experience. My understanding of psychotherapy has developed over many years of experience and reflection. I became a psychologist because of my own experience as a client. Psychotherapy has made a big difference in my life. I offer the possibility for experiencing psychotherapy as making a big difference to your life. I have a natural curiosity for the way in which people deal with the challenges of existence.
I work with adult individuals and couples. The mental health concerns that my clients have include anxiety, depression, feelings of low self-worth and self-confidence. I also work with clients who experience a sense of meaninglessness and pointlessness in their lives and want to find meaning. This includes people who have been successful in their careers but do not know what they want to do next. I am working more and more with men's issues that include communication challenges, anger, anxiety and depression. I have clients who have experiences of being bullied at work. Transitions into retirement, into new jobs and roles are areas in which I work. I have clients with cross cultural anxiety.
ACT, CBT, Conversational Model, Dialogical Practice, Existential, Experiential, Psychodynamic
Based on years of experience I work with a number of approaches depending on the concerns that the client brings to therapy. I tune in very quickly to the concerns that bring you to psychotherapy. Through therapeutic conversations client and therapist learn to trust each other. The more we learn to trust each other, the more we are able to manage and/or overcome the challenges that you present.
I am a psychologist with over 20 years of experience. I have been teaching and doing research on anxiety and depression for just as long. I do professional development courses for psychologists. I am experienced in a range of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Therapies, Psychodynamic and Existential therapies.
My understanding of psychotherapy emerges out of my own experience and reflection. I started as a client in therapy, then became a therapist, then immersed myself in research into mental health concerns. I have an extensive background in working with mental health concerns. I have studied mental concerns from a psychological, philosophical, historical and sociological perspective. I am able to draw on all of these in response to the particular challanges experienced by the client.
I am available to see clients within 7 days of request. Please call to discuss available times.

It is said that we live in an ‘age of anxiety.’ It is not only you or me that experiences anxiety and depression. Mental health issues challenge most of us at some time in our lives. We need to develop resilience and resolve in the face of uncertainties, anxieties and challenges. This enables us to be the best version of ourselves. To face the challenges of life on our own is difficult. As a psychologist, I provide a safe and trusting context to develop yourself. ...
