    Personal Approach
    I work within an integrated framework that draws on a range of counselling theories, approaches and techniques: Psychodynamic Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Gestalt Therapy and Imago Therapy. I consider my way of working with people (individually, in couples, sex therapy) as providing an individual approach that is personalised around you and your needs and issues. I work with adults of all ages providing long and short term counselling and psychotherapy.
