Psychotherapy & Counselling
in Cambridge


There are times when it’s necessary to examine what has happened in our lives, and find a safe place where the emotional factors affecting us can be understood and worked through. Often, but not exclusively, these are at times of crisis. Psychotherapy helps contain crises, and approaches them as important opportunities for personal growth. Treatment is open-ended and involves coming for a 50 minute session once a week, or more.


Therapy held once a week over a pre-agreed number of weeks can be important and efficient at times of trouble. We usually focus on a specific issue, for instance a predicament you are in or a symptom such as anxiety. We look at how your life experience and unconscious emotions determine how you are approaching things. This increases your freedom to think and act.

Online Therapy

Online therapy is working well during the Covid-19 crisis when it is impossible to meet in person. It uses straight-forward and secure technology. Clients from anywhere in the UK are welcome for online counselling, but psychotherapy patients must be within reach of Cambridge so work can resume in person when the crisis eases.


The initial consultation is £60. Fees for on-going work are negotiable. Some reduced fee places are offered. During the outbreak, supportive counselling is offered free for front-line NHS staff, and more low-fee counselling appointment times have been made available. Please click here to make contact.

I have worked both one-to-one and in groups in clinics, private practice and other settings including the national mental health charity Mind and the Cogwheel Trust in Cambridge.

My training includes qualifications in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Counselling from WPF, from the Gestalt Centre for work in groups, and specialist training for online counselling. 

The practice stands on foundations of confidentiality, rigorous training, a good consulting room and online space, long experience helping clients, and the experience I’ve gained from being in intensive psychotherapy myself.

I am a Member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and my work is regulated by them.

Initial Consultation

These are longer sessions, lasting up to 75 minutes.  They give you a chance to really go into why you are looking for therapy, to give some of your personal history, and for us to think about what the right treatment would be for you. The experience of being listened to intently and exclusively will be quite unique for most people.
