About me

Special Offering

I know that coming to therapy for the first time can feel daunting. I also know that spending money to find out whether you have found the right therapist for you, can create a barrier and a pressure. With this in mind I am offering a FREE initial consultation with anyone interested in exploring counselling or psychotherapy with me. This isn't either an assessment or a therapy session, but an opportunity to ask questions, tell me about your issues, and learn a little about my approach to the work. This consultation will last 30 minutes.

I want you to get a sense, of how it would feel to work together. If we agree, we are a good fit, we will proceed to arranging a first session.


​I am an accredited member with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) . I am also a member of COSRT (College of Sex and Relationship Therapists Both organisations place an emphasis on ethics, including confidentiality.

How I can help

I have worked with hundreds of people, with these being just some of the issues I have worked on;.

​Managing Anger
Anxiety, stress, confidence, panic, self esteem
Body image, food and eating issues
Compulsive sexual behaviour
Gender and identity issues
Grief and loss
Life Events
Personal Growth
Relationships, and sexual concerns
Sleep issues
Work issues


​I have been practising as a psychotherapist for over ten years. Prior to that I worked for the NHS as a Risk Manager and in Human Resources. As well as my work as a Therapist, I present, write and I am a Trustee with Relate.

How can I help?

My aim is that through counselling you will achieve greater control of your life. In gaining some understanding of your thoughts and feelings, I can help facilitate a period of acceptance and change by enabling you to talk about emotional difficulties and periods of crisis.

And what are the benefits?​

  • Gain a stronger sense of your self

  • Improve self-confidence

  • Overcome limiting beliefs

  • Gain control over problematic behaviours

  • Work towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life

I am registered to accept referrals from Aviva members.
