COVID-19 Information October 2020 update

During these times I am continuing to work by telephone or online working globally. This will remain the case for some yet in accordance with UKCP guidelines for mutual safety and best practice.

People are experiencing intensified feelings such as stress and anxiety, and it is important to get some professional help during this time; so please be in touch.

Experienced and fully qualified psychotherapist.

I am currently providing sessions, by telephone or online so your location does not matter

I work Monday to Friday mornings, afternoons and evenings

I typically work with symptoms such as depression and anxiety, bereavement, loss and grief, feelings of sadness and emptiness, panic attacks, anger issues, displacement, identity issues, relationship and family issues, cultural differences and with couples we work on communications skills and conflict management. This is not an exhaustive list so please get in contact. If I feel I am not the right person for you I maybe able to suggest an alternative.

Please note, I do not offer a crisis service. I will respond to calls or emails during the working week but if you need urgent help, please contact your GP, go to any A&E department and ask to see the duty psychiatrist or call the Samaritans’ free 24 hour helpline on 116 123.

I offer a safe, warm, empathic, non judgemental space to identify understand and work through the issues that bring you. My particular area of interest is working with difference in understanding my client in a sensitive way. Difference be it, cultural, racial, gender, age, economic or sexuality.
