My approach

For over 30 years I have been in practice as a Consultant Psychotherapist . Drawing on systemic ideas , and traditions of hypnotherapy and brief therapy I try and create a relationship in which we can explore creative ways of uprooting painful or difficult problems in living. I am passionate about finding useful and more positive frames for people so that change becomes feasible.
