Professional Counselling and Psychotherapy in Worcester.

'Therapy is about helping people to understand themselves in a way that gives them more options and degrees of freedom.' (T.Butt, 'Understanding People', Palgrave, 2004)

Please note that I am not able to take any new referrals for therapy for the time being. This website will be updated when this situation changes. Please visit the website of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy to search for other accredited therapists close to you.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website which gives details of my counselling and psychotherapy practice in Worcester. I hope the information here will be helpful if you are thinking of contacting a therapist, especially for the first time. Making the decision to see a counsellor and come for therapy is a big step - but it can be a very positive one and I have over twenty years experience of working with people from all walks of life, and with all kinds of needs. I see people* on their own, or in couples, usually on a weekly basis, or twice a week.

Some issues that I have particular experience of working with as a counsellor include:

  • anxiety (fear)
  • bereavement
  • depression (sadness)
  • relationship problems
  • anger issues
  • self-esteem
  • sexuality
  • minority stress (e.g. affecting lesbian/gay/bisexual/trans people)
  • the emotional impact of having been sent to boarding school

    I also work with people who want to think about the 'story' of their lives and who perhaps feel that it has got stuck and needs rethinking or taking in a new direction. In addition, I frequently work with people who are themselves involved in the caring professions: counsellors, doctors, nurses, teachers, clergy. It is not always easy for such people to reach out for support when they need it, but doing so is key to staying healthy in these roles. My clients typically come from Worcester, Malvern, Cheltenham, Kidderminster and the surrounding area of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, but you are welcome to contact me wherever you are based. I do not currently offer online counselling.
