About me

If you would like help with personal problems, I have over thirty-five years of experience in the practice of counselling and psychotherapy and am a highly qualified practitioner. In search of my own answers to life I have undertaken an advanced, intensive Jungian training which included a three times weekly analysis of my own and I therefore have the capacity to offer long-term, intensive help to those people who need and want it. As well as this, I am also skilled in shorter-term, focussed counselling which can help to manage particular areas of life that are causing difficulties. I treat people rather than problems and am passionate about helping you to become the person who you really are, a process that Jung calls individuation and one that is full of life….
