About me

I have had a wide variety of life experiences, having lived in several countries, been married and divorced, and having brought up several children.

I worked for many years in the funeral business, and I have a huge amount of experience in working with the bereaved.

I have also worked in the theatre for many years as an actor and as a director, and have a thorough understanding of that world and its challenges.

I have experience of divorce and single-parenting.

 I feel passionately about every individual managing to achieve some level of happiness and contentment, in spite of the challenges that may come their way, and I will do my best to help them with that goal.

Further Information

At some point in your life, you might find that some issue – like a sudden bereavement of a pending divorce seems too huge to cope with by yourself.  It could be that for a long time you have experienced an overall dissatisfaction with aspects of your life, and want to make changes.
However big an issue may be, or however small it may feel to you, there is great benefit in talking it through in a confidential environment with someone who is not in any way involved with the rest of your life.

I offer short-term help as well as long-term therapy.

At the same time as working on any particular issue that a client brings, I am interested in helping my clients shape and manage their lives, in order to feel more satisfied and contented.

I like to meet for an initial session to make sure that we both feel comfortable working together before we commit to a group of sessions.

I am equally happy to work long-term with you or to have just a few-sessions on a crisis-management basis.
