Although the term 'Counselling' is sometimes a term used generally to describe all types of therapy, it also refers to a specific type of therapy. Counselling allows an individual to talk to a trained counsellor about a specific type of problem with the aim of helping the client to understand their problem more clearly and come up with their own solutions to deal with these difficulties.

Further information about Counselling is available on the web site:

Couples Therapy

"A relationship is something that you need to work on frequently to keep it alive. The work that you put into it is like giving water to the plant so that it grows or like putting fuel into a car in order to run it on the road". (Dr. Sadhana Damani)

In my couples therapy work I use an integrative approach that consists of Systemic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This is a process of helping the parties in a relationship to recognise and better manage, or reconcile troublesome differences and to recognise and change repeating patterns of negative interactions and distress.


I have significant experience in providing therapy for a range of problems
that include the following:

  • Stress/anxiety
  • Bereavement/loss
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Adjustment (after negative experience
    e.g. accident/trauma etc)
  • Anger Management
  • Depression
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Bipolar Mood Disorder
  • Specific Phobia
  • Driving/passenger anxiety
  • Health Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Workplace problems/stress
  • Rehabilitation
  • Relationship problems and Couples Therapy
  • Family issues
  • Pain Management
  • Addictions
  • Illness
  • Sexual abuse
  • Assertiveness
  • Loss of self esteem/confidence


I have been working as a supervisor in private practice for a considerable number of years.

I have supervised trainee therapists from Keele University, Stoke on Trent College, University of Manchester, Lancaster University and Derby University.

I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Supervision and offer one-to-one supervision and/or group supervision to trainee and experienced therapists.

This is by no means a complete list.
If you have an issue that is not listed here, please ring me to discuss it confidentially.
