I am passionate about supporting others to manage and better enjoy their lives while navigating the obstacles that 21st Century living, ingrained behaviour patterns and emotional dysregulation throw in our way.

Alongside my therapy work I have worked in commercial organisations for over 30 years – I understand the pressure experienced at all stages of a career and the challenges that day-to-day life can pose.

And I’ve learned it’s entirely human – anxiety is a natural response to any perceived threat. But all too often excessive anxiety and fear comes from unconscious and dysregulated processes – it is unwanted, unnecessary, overblown and destructive.

Like many people I have experienced bereavement, relationship turbulence and great love and happiness as well which, together with my professional training, shapes my work as a therapist.

How to manage all these strains when experiencing depressive and / or anxiety illness or obsessive compulsive disorders, can be learned when effectively supported.

My initial training was as a Jungian and later in Transactional Analysis (TA). TA focuses specifically on how we communicate with our environment specifically in regards to how we think, feel and behave in response to any given situation. I work relationally and believe human connection is at the heart of emotional wellbeing. I am also interested in animal assisted therapy and often work with my black Labrador – Plum.

I specialise in working with addictive behaviours, eating disorders, grief and loss, depression and depressive illness and anxiety, specific and generalised.

Clients come to me directly and / or are referred to me from private, commercial and alternative clinical settings as well as GPs and therapists from a variety of modalities.
