“I have been working with Chris for a few months, which has been very beneficial. I have since “reprogrammed” my destructive ways of thinking (and approach to others) and my quality of life has improved immensely. One of my problems was anger, which I thought was a hopeless issue - but I was surprised about the effectiveness of Chris’s anger management techniques were. Chris is very professional and knowledgable indeed, with a breadth of techniques. She is at the same time easy-going with a humorous approach. Highly recommend her. “

About

With over 30  years of experience in psychotherapy and counselling I practice both psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as CBT - which is an excellent and valuable combination. I also hold special skills in addictions therapy, such as alcohol, drugs, tranquillisers, sugar, food, gambling, sex - and I have also run a practice for people with dependency.

I work with a wide range of different problem issues, such as stress/burnout, anxiety/panic attacks, depression, addictions, relationship difficulties, low self esteem, anger management, bereavement/loss, bullying, perfectionism, phobias, adjusting to health conditions/chronic pain.

Furthermore and in later years, I have worked with occupational health and wellbeing in workplaces, to promote work performance. Stress-related illnesses, sometimes accompanied by risky drinking, have reached a sky high levels in the 21st Century. Healthy, happy staff is a company’s best investment - and the good news is that this can be achieved, with less effort than you might think.

I can warmly recommend this very committed and caring psychotherapist. I’m very grateful for the help I’ve got with my alcohol problems from Chris, who has a very long experience from dependences of all kinds. I’ve seen 2-3 other counsellors over the years, but none understood my problem (and cause), the way Chris has - and in a non judgemental way. I have recently recommended her to a friend with a gambling addiction and I hear he has the greatest of confidence in her and is starting to make progress.

I have had 8 sessions with Chris, due to long time suffering from anxiety. Chris has really helped me to develop effective coping strategies and I feel I’ve got a life now. With her long experience and her great commitment, I’ve felt safe and very comfortable working with her.
