I tend to work across the lifespan but am not specialised to work with children under the age of 16. So, anyone age 16+ is welcome.

Most individuals may at some point in their life feel confused about why they are feeling low, function badly or just feel off colour and feel they need to talk to someone. You do not need a particular illness or problem to see me. You may even just want to come to let off steam and off-load.

Couches are mostly used in analytical approaches where it is normal for patients to lie down facing away from the analyst. This is not the way I work, clients can sit any way they like, it all depends on their preference.

I am available outside office hours but this can be discussed during our initial consultation.

No, I am unable to see you at your home or work.

Optimum benefit will be gained from therapy if you feel ready for it and are willing to fully commit. Therapy isn’t an easy process and therefore one needs to be fully committed and ready for it. If you were to come to therapy because your partner/parent tells you to do so but your heart is not in it, it most probably will not have the same benefits.

Yes that is possible however, I usually start sessions on an individual basis. Should we both feel, during the sessions, that it would benefit you or your relationship to have your partner/parent/family member attend, this can be accommodated.

I am currently not registered with any medical insurer so you cannot claim back the sessions with me from your insurer. Please do check your insurance policy whether psychological provision is covered.

Yes, unless you tell me that you want to harm yourself or if you know of someone who wants to harm you. In the latter case I will need to disclose this information to third parties such as your GP. Please see my terms of business for more information.

No, this is solely done in psycho-analytical approaches where it is seen as helpful. However, my approach sees once a week or less as sufficient.

This can be helpful and with most therapeutic approaches, a proper assessment of your presenting problems can be made by looking into what has contributed to how you act, think and feel at present.

Sometimes our dreams can tell us something about our unconscious processes and this may be helpful to some people with regard to their desires and needs. However, if you do not want to talk about your dreams, you don’t have to.

The effects of therapy are long-lasting and cannot always be felt straight away. You may feel worse initially but as time goes on the process of therapy will help you and it will become clear to both of us when you are ready to stop therapy.

I have been trained and have work-experience in many different approaches, this means that I can be flexible and customise your care-plan.
