Through my extensive experience, both within private practice and within leading organisations, I have encountered the whole range of human experience and helped hundreds of people to have happier, healthier lives. As a result I have become known as a leading expert in my field and also a professional writer of books and articles on psychology. I insure that I myself live a very real life including spending time with family, friends and pets and so realise the love and stability and yes sometimes painful difficulties our relationships of all kinds can bring. I believe I am wiser from understanding through therapy my own earlier experiences of my life suddenly being turned upside down; resulting in inner and outer chaos and unhealthy attempts to manage distressing thoughts and feelings. I do practice what I preach and enjoy working on maintaining my now rewarding, well balanced life and relationships. My aim is to bring the benefits from both professional training, extensive practice and personal experience to my therapeutic work with you. These same ingredients have helped the very many others I have worked with over the years.
