What's Your Story?

Telling stories goes back to the beginning of time. I believe we all have a unique story to tell; and making sense of our stories is part of making sense of ourselves.

I appear regularly on TV, Radio and online as a Relationship Psychologist and have written several bestselling self-help books and ghosted life stories. I write dramas, especially biopics and screenplays. I also see individual clients for psychotherapy and work with groups.

Telling stories goes back to the beginning of time. I believe we all have a unique story to tell; and making sense of our stories is part of making sense of ourselves.

Writing is my life.  I love stories, real-life or fictional.  I can help you write your own life story and get it into print.

Broadcasting is all about telling a story.  I can bring clarity to complex life and psychological issues for Radio and TV.

Everyone has a story, and most of us need a good listening to.  As your therapist I will makes sure you are heard.
