Specialist help for anxiety, OCD & depression
I aim to provide consistently high quality, personalised therapy specialising in all anxiety disorders, overcoming depressive conditions and working with intelligent individuals who need guidance to understand themselves better and discover who they truly are and what they want from life.
In addition to the therapy/education, I provide recordings to listen to and videos that can be accessed to reinforce all the smart work we do.
My work is very process-driven and educational, once your emotions are more under control, you will have skills and knowledge to see and live life differently so it becomes hard to slip back into old self-sabotaging routines.
I would advise that the first session be 2 hours long when working with anxiety or OCD.
Online Skype or Telephone sessions £130 for a 1.5-hour conference
Because of the specialist nature of my work with anxiety, OCD and depression many people in different countries want to work with me. We do this via Zoom.us video conferencing (I just send you a link) but you will need a good internet connection, a reasonably large screen (not phone) and the video will be on so I can see you.
Because it is a little difficult to explain things online – you will need to watch all my explanation videos here before we start, these videos are free once you sign in and are also helpful for carers and partners of anxious people.Sign up to watch existing videos
Online low-cost video therapy for those who can’t afford to see me
For those who can’t afford high-quality therapy or who are disappointed with NHS CBT therapies and are looking for a more technical “thinkers” view on what anxiety is – I am developing my own online anxiety, OCD and depression recovery course that is free to join and only costs a few pounds each time I release a new video.Online anxiety course

Free initial consultation
This is normally by phone, however, you are very welcome to have this meeting in my office, it usually lasts about 20 minutes and is an informal way of outlining your needs and discussing the outcomes that you are looking for and importantly, it allows you to ensure you feel comfortable with me before making a commitment.
Number of sessions required
On average I see clients between 3 – 9 sessions, however, this is very dependent on your problem and the length of time you have been living with it. Deep-seated anxiety and OCD may need more sessions over a longer period of time.
Session frequency is initially weekly and then can be extended to wider gaps after the first three depending on finances, time and how you are responding to the therapeutic interventions.
Note: The work I do is NOT focused on you talking and talking about your problems and going over your past time and time again, I feel this just reinforces old patterns and revives unhelpful emotions. My style of therapy and education is based on teaching you new ways to act, new ways to think, new ways to connect with your emotions and completely new ways to interact with life and yourself. In fact, I do most of the talking for the first session or two as I give you dozens of new ways of recognising and understanding your problem, then I teach you the techniques required to move through them. This new way of being, not only helps you to overcome your presenting problem, it also allows you to change other aspects of who you are and how you interact with life and those around you.
Monday to Thursday 08:00 – 20:00 (last session starting at 18:00)
Friday 08:00 – 17:30 (last session starting at 16:00)
Saturday & Sunday closed (as my work life balance is deeply important to me).
The nearest train station is Milton Keynes (20 minutes away by taxi). If you would like me to meet you at the station and return you after the session I am happy to do this for a fee of £40. Buses do service Buckingham from Milton Keynes & Oxford via Bicester, Brackley and Banbury.
Payment is made in full at the end of each session by cash or by cheque (online in advance by PayPal). Any cancellation with less than 24 hours notice will be charged in full. If your financial situation is difficult, please talk to me before booking any sessions and we can explore what might be possible, although I can’t promise anything.
