I treat people, not clients. Each person is an individual, I therefore never ‘pigeon hole’ a person to suit the therapy. Instead I work from an eclectic standpoint, drawing on a number of disciplines to best suit the needs of the person. These approaches include psychoanalysis, person centred counselling, family / systemic therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy
Within my private practice I provide therapy to children, adults, couples and family groups.
I am a Provider for for the following health insurers:
BUPA WPA PruHealth AVIVA Cigna Standard Life Benenden
I have also worked with a major London bus company providing drivers with therapy following accidents, fatalities, work related issues and family problems.
Additionally I am an Expert Witness for legal cases (Tier 1) having taken instruction from Simpson Miller, Barker Austin, IEQD and Fentons and can provide services as a Critical Incident Manager.
Prior to my work as a therapist I was as a Teacher and later a Child Protection Officer. Although I enjoy all of my work I have a special interest in working with children.
