Hello...

I am a Gestalt Counsellor (regsitered with BACP) and started seeing clients from 2013. This was through placements at Hampshire charities No Limits (young people) and Cruse (bereavement). From 2017 to 2019 I set up and ran a counselling service with London charity Positive21 (HIV). I am co-author of "Strengh to Talk" which is dedicated to mens mental health with all proceeds going to the charity Mind.

In the past I have worked with LGBT young people who are at risk of sexual exploitation, domestic abuse and neglect as a project worker. A career high point was being able to improve understanding of the risks of LGBT young people to other mental health professionals at Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) County Forum in 2014.

Therapy with me...

Anyone interested in counselling can have a consultation session (30mins) which is no charge to ask any questions and check that we could make progress.

After that I work online via "Psychology Today Sessions" (encrypted video service) each session lasts 50min.

The model I use is Gestalt/humanistic theory.
