I am a highly skilled contemporary psychotherapist and counsellor with more than 25 years of experience in the NHS and private sector. I work as an integrative therapist and use brief, outcome-orientated therapeutic approaches. I aim to bring my patients greater insight regarding their mental health and wellbeing, giving them an increased sense of confidence, understanding and skill in managing their health issues. With a background in speech and language therapy within NHS psychiatry, I have experience working with all age groups.
