COVID-19 update.  Face to face treatment options have resumed but face coverings  need to be worn for these (as we are indoors talking for 60 mins, albeit with socially distanced chairs and ventilation!) Appointments are for adults with no COVID-19 symptoms, who have not been in recent contact with those with COVID-19 symptoms and are not shielding and have not been told to quarantine. 

I am not currently offering remote therapy (phone / skype / zoom) for new clients.

There has been a big increase in enquiries over recent months - if I have been delayed in responding or you do not get a response for your enquiry then I am sorry -in some cases I am unable to assist (e.g. I am not able to see children or teenagers and do not offer family or couple sessions currently; I do not offer expert witness reports, capacity assessment, or work experience or training placements) Thank you for your understanding.


21/5/21 Availability update- I am afraid there are no free appointments currently and the next availability is likely to be late July / August 2021


Note: Please fill out the fields marked with an asterisk.


Please send me a message using this contact form, or use the direct email address, postal address or phone number below if you would like to find out more about the services provided, discuss how to make a referral or to arrange an appointment. The phone may not be answered- as I never leave the phone on when I am in clinic but I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are requesting a call back, let me know if there are particular times you are free to talk and whether it is OK to leave a message on your answerphone if you can't respond. I look forward to hearing from you,


Kind regards,
