My approach to therapy is humanistic and relational, The theoretical model I use is Transactional Analysis integrated with some Cognitive, Gestalt and Mindfulness influences
I believe that everyone has the right to be happy and reach their potentional. Eric Berne the father of TA describes it as becoming the Prince or Princess of the fairy tale rather than being satisfied with being a ‘happier frog’ ! I see my role as assisting people to achieve that potential.

Prior to setting up my private practice I worked for several years in the field of mental health where I gained experience of working with individuals, couples and groups in NHS Primary Care, rehabilitation and forensic environments. Currently I run a Counselling, Psychotherapy and Mindfulness private practice that has been in operation for over 20 years. I enjoy holding workshops and courses and love being involved in training both in my specialisms of TA and Mindfulness and in the broader area of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also offer clinical supervision to therapists and the helping professions.
