collaborative psychotherapy
& facilitation

"We become, and are ourselves, only in relation to others..."  (John Shotter, 1993)

Please note I am no longer offering long term therapy to new clients. I am able to offer short term therapy, up to 20 sessions.  I am recognised as a Psychotherapist with AXA, BUPA, Onebright, AVIVA and NUFFIELD.


I offer a safe and confidential space within which we will explore what is happening in any area of life, how to bring meaning to a situation or to find ways to go forward. 

My approach is to work with each person’s unique lived experience and own way of making meaning about their life. I work in a collaborative and co-creative way that is respectful of each person’s autonomy and wisdom to know or discover what they need. It is not my role to diagnose or pathologise a person’s experience. Rather it is to to accompany the people I work alongside, with a focus on how the person experiences themselves and others. 

I value and respect difference and diversity and am open to working with all people, beliefs and ways of being.  I work with all people across the full spectrum of gender, sexuality and relationship diversity. I also work with groups and organisations. I am open to working with any aspect of a person’s life with a special interest in issues around intimacy, sexuality, conflict and loss. 

My approach also sits within a view of psychotherapy as being embedded in the social, political and economic contexts, environment and power relations within which both the therapist and client lives. In this sense I do not regard the 'problem' being experienced or the process of change as being entirely located within the individual. I am instead to committed to the development of a 'community psychology' where the person is always understood and related to as being situated with others in their life.

BSc (Phys), Dip. Psychodrama Psych., Dip. Couns.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). 


My practice as a counsellor and therapist began in Australia some 35 years ago. Having come from a professional background in social justice and community development I trained as a Community Counsellor and a Narrative Therapist,  working within a wide range of contexts with individuals, families and groups. This breadth of experience included working within government, private and community settings with individuals, relationships and families.


I am also a qualified Relationship Therapist, Group Therapist and Psychodramatist and offer the use of creative action methods in my work to explore aspects of self  and interpersonal relationsIn using these methods to explore life situations I facilitate the person to map out aspects of themselves and others in their life through the use of objects like fabrics, stones, cards and figures.  

I work with individuals, relationships and groups.

Please drop me a line for more information about fees and availability.

We will begin with an initial consultation as a first step in exploring whether I am a good fit for your needs.

At this session we can explore any initial questions you may have about working with me and how I might be of assistance at this time. This will help us to begin to get a sense of...


  • the focus and frequency of your sessions

  • whether you would like to work with me one-to-one or join a psychotherapy group

  • agreeing on a set number of sessions or to work in an open-ended way

  • any specific goals you might have that can be changed or reviewed at any time

  • or whether you prefer to work with whatever is happening for you as and when issues arise. 


I look forward to hearing from you and exploring the possibility of working together...


What you share with me during our work together will be held as confidential and will not be disclosed to others without your permission, except where I have reason to believe that you may be in danger of serious harm or that others are at risk. In such cases I have a right and duty to break confidentiality. In such instances it will always be my intention to reflect on the ethical challenges facing us in a collaborative way.

To safeguard the quality of my clinical practice I also discuss aspects of my work with my clinical supervisor, as and when I feel it is necessary, in such a way that does not identify my clients.
