Counselling and psychotherapy in Cambridge

Welcome to my Cambridge counselling, psychotherapy and couples therapy private practice. As an experienced, accredited and registered counsellor/psychotherapist I offer a relaxed, comfortable and informal space where you can talk in confidence about any troubling issues. I also supervise counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals.

I am an experienced, fully qualified, accredited and BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) registered counsellor / psychotherapist. I studied psychology as part of my first degree and undertook my initial training with Cambridge University.

Common reasons women and men come to me for private sessions include:

  • stress, anxiety, depression, rumination, self-blame
  • issues around relationships, sex, sexuality, gender
  • low self-confidence and negative life events
  • past sexual trauma and abuse
  • male and female eating disorders and issues
  • food related issues (intolerance, IBS)
  • trauma and childhood abuse (female and male)
  • bereavement
  • psychosomatic illnesses
  • issues concerning personal development and fulfilment
  • work-related difficulties
  • searching for mindfulness.

If you are looking for sex therapy, relationship help, couples counselling or help with sexuality issues you might like to look at the relevant pages in the therapies section of this site or you could also look at my relationship-therapy-cambridge website.

I have particular experience in the areas of:

  • working with women who prefer to see a male counsellor/psychotherapist
  • couples therapy
  • pornography addictions and issues; read my book?
  • working with men
  • workplace performance anxiety and stress management
  • compulsive eating, dieting, anorexia and bulimia
  • mentoring and facilitation for individuals, groups and organisations.
I work with individuals and couples, and supervise other practitioners. I also work with organisations that require my services as a supervisor, therapist for staff members and/or a mentor/facilitator on wider organisational issues.

I have particular interest in, and a great deal of experience of, working with individuals and couples (of all orientations) on sexual and relationship issues. Whether you call it ‘having problems talking’ or just ‘going through a bad patch’, couples therapy is likely to help clarify the underlying issue or issues. I am also used to working with sexual and relationship difficulties that arise from infidelity (cheating), using escorts and/or inappropriate use of the Internet such as sexual Internet addictions.

The Internet and social media can amplify many different types of relationship issue, but they tend to be things that respond well to a talking therapy such as the one I offer. Sadly, sometimes relationships have to break up, and considering the splitting-up process might be something you need to do in the safe and thoughtful place that therapy normally becomes.

I am also used to working with risky sexual behaviours of all sorts. If you would like to contact me about any issues related to a relationship or sexual difficulty then you can email me confidentially to arrange a time to talk.

Before you make the decision to begin counselling or therapy you may have some questions about what the process might entail or how it might help you. Since evidence suggests that it is the relationship between you and your therapist that has one of the greatest impacts on the success of the work you do in counselling or psychotherapy, please feel welcome to contact me via email or telephone and we can have a short conversation prior to you thinking about booking a session.

There is easy parking available at my counselling and psychotherapy practice (CB21), which has excellent access to Cambridge city centre and Peterhouse technology park. There are congestion-free routes to my practice from south city locations, south Cambridge villages and from Addenbrooke's hospital.

Access from the A14, A11, M11, A10 and A505 (map) is swift. Citi 1, Citi 3 and No. 17 bus stops are located close by. Sadly, I am unable to provide wheelchair access. However, I do offer a telephone or Skype service for people who find it difficult to attend sessions in person.
