About Me

What are your qualifications?

I routinely and pursue a range of professional development in various specialist areas including analytical psychology and couples / marriage counselling.

I have worked in various clinics, hospitals, and charitable organisations providing counselling to adults and families over the past 13 years both in the UK and America.

In addition to my therapy training, I have substantial business experience that is valuable in working with clients who are facing work-related concerns or organizational difficulties. I have also undergone many years of personal psychotherapy which I believe is a critical element of training for all practitioners.

Where is your office?

I work at 56 London Street in central Reading. It is about a 7 minute walk from the train station and adjacent to the Oracle Car Park. View an online map or download map, direction & parking information.

How much does counselling cost?

£50 for adults, £80 for couples or families.

What happens in a first session?

During a first session I usually invite you to tell me why you've chosen to begin counselling and answer any questions you might have about the process. I will also offer information about confidentiality and my methods of working.

Do you have any specialisations?

Yes, my specialist areas include:
