Welcome to my website.

                                                                                                              FIND A WAY . . . FIND YOURSELF . . . .

I am based on the Wirral, with good motorway access and public transport links making it convenient for clients from the Wirral, Liverpool and South Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester and North Wales.  I offer confidential, face-to-face sessions for adults, both individuals and couples, and this can either be short-term work on specific problems, or longer-term work on more deep-seated personal issues.  I meet with clients in a light and spacious room, which is quiet, secluded, and conducive to reflecting on whatever is on your mind.  I am also available to work in Skype video sessions.  I aim to listen to you in a non-judgmental way and to provide a consistent and reliable resource that will enable you to understand and accept yourself better and gain a greater sense of control over your life.

I have worked for over thirty years as a counsellor and psychotherapist, and am registered as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and as a Senior Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am also a member of ATSAC (Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity).  I worked in the NHS for eleven years as Principal Adult Psychotherapist and Senior Counsellor, and before that for ten years as a University Counsellor.  I also have experience in industrial, commercial and public service settings, and am also a Consultant for the Churches’ Ministerial Counselling Service, which offers counselling to ministers of religion and their spouses.  I have also had extensive experience, in both the NHS and private practice, as a clinical supervisor of other counsellors, including trainees.

I am accustomed to dealing with issues such as relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, trauma, study or career difficulties, and the psychological and emotional consequences of abuse.  I currently specialise in counselling sexual addiction and related intimacy disorders.  I believe strongly in equal opportunities for all, and strive to understand differing cultural backgrounds and to maintain a non-discriminatory approach.  Please feel free to contact me if you would like further details.
