I am an experienced therapist using a range of client-centred (humanistic) approaches, also offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), to work with individuals of any race, culture, religion or sexual orientation. I see adults for a wide range of emotional problems and relationship issues.
I work with both specific issues and psychotherapeutically, for short or longer term work, as required.
I am gentle, supportive, respectful and genuine, with a strong belief in the quality of the relationship between us as being crucial to the outcomes of therapy. I aim to offer a confidential, safe, warm and non-judgmental environment in which you may share and explore your inner thoughts and feelings.
