I trained as a psychodynamic counsellor in Cambridge and then did further training in London, qualifying as an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist.
I am a member of The Forum for Independent Psychotherapists (FiP), The Bury Practice of Counselling and Psychotherapy and The Cambridge Attachment Group, and am an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
Often people do not have a clear agenda when they start therapy, but some people have a particular reason for seeing a therapist. Some of these may be:
anxiety and panic attacks
loss and bereavement
abuse and domestic violence
separation and divorce
What I do and how I work
I work from home in Isleham between Newmarket and Ely. My consulting room has disabled access and I see individuals and couples, and provide supervision.
People can contact me directly, but I also accept referrals from the NHS, Occupational Health services, private companies and the public sector. I offer both short- and long-term therapy.
The first session is very important as not only is it when I can begin to hear the story but more importantly the patient can make an assessment themselves as to whether they feel comfortable talking to me and whether they feel they want to continue working with me. As an attachment therapist working often in a relational way with you the working alliance between us is vital.
