About me

I am a trained and registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist and offer therapy services to adults, young people, couples and groups. I have extensive experience of working with a variety of different methods and approaches, these include; Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Attachment. I believe it is important to work with you as an individual and will combine the approach to best serve you.

I have worked for the NHS, Manchester Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Centre as a Clinical Supervisor for CAMHS and as an Associate for a training company for businesses. I am currently working in Manchester as a Consultant Psychotherapist with a Fostering Organisation, offering consultations for Foster Parents, Social Workers and Managers, as well as working in private practice in Belper.


I have particular experience of working with issues such as; relationships, parenting, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management, sexual abuse, grief, bereavement and the Autistic Spectrum.

It is important for you to connect with your Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I will offer you a consultation for 45 to 60 minutes initially at a cost of £30, to help you decide if I am the therapist for you. This will allow you to discuss your issue with me, understand how I work and for us both to decide if we would like to work together.

I work from an office in Belper on the A6, that offers you a comfortable and secure environment. The office has parking nearby and is close to both train and bus services.
