Provision of Counselling & Psychotherapy during
I am continuing to offer consultations online via Zoom, FaceTime, Doxy.me etc., and by telephone. I am highly experienced in providing therapy in this way. This is easy to set-up and appointments are offered at a reduced rate of £25.00 for keyworkers.
Consultations do not need to be on a regular basis and can simply be a one-off appointment.
I offer counselling, psychotherapy and psychological self-help for a number of issues which can include, but are not exclusive to, anxiety and uncertainty, isolation, low-mood, insomnia, low self-esteem and family issues.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss further.

I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working with adults, young adults, couples and families. I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment in which to explore your thoughts and feelings, to help you move beyond your perceived limitations and realise your full potential.
My approach is integrative, mainly drawing on the Transactional Analysis model, alongside Gestalt, Attachment Theory, Existential, Psychodynamic and CBT models. You can read a brief outline of these here. Therapy, above all, is a collaborative process in which we explore feelings and repeated patterns of behaviour and thinking to help identify the underlying causes of distress.
Some of the issues I work with include, but are not exclusive to, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, relationship issues, stress, bullying, panic attacks, addictions, confidence, career issues, family issues, self-harm and grief and loss.
Alongside my private practice, I am an Associate Counsellor at the University of Liverpool and Age Concern.

Psychotherapy & Counselling
Psychotherapy and counselling are similar therapeutic interventions. However, counselling is very often used for short-term, solution-focused work and psychotherapy works at a deeper level.
Couples & Relationship Counselling
Couples and relationship therapy allows a third person to hear your struggles and enable you both, as individuals, to be heard and actively listen to one another.
Writers & Artists
I have a special interest working with actors, writers, musicians, dancers and performers. I offer psychotherapy, counselling and performance coaching techniques both face-to-face and via Skype.
