I am a fully qualified relationship counsellor, working largely with couples and individuals. I'm a firm
believer that when it comes to relationship problems it's better to talk – and I can help you with that.
I use an integrative counselling approach. This draws on different therapeutic styles, including
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), so I can use whichever is best for you.
The therapeutic relationship we build is at the heart of this.
At present with the coronavirus disruption I am arranging sessions via Zoom, FaceTime
and Skype. We can discuss how feasible this is for you. I will try to be as flexible as possible
in finding a convenient time.
Normally I work in Central London and Haslemere, Surrey and would usually offer appointments
on Fridays in London, and Tuesday afternoon/evenings and Thursday afternoon/evenings
in Haslemere. My rooms in London are at Oxford Circus and Holborn. My practice in Surrey
is at the Haslemere Clinic, GU27 1LH. There is a map here.
