About me

I'm an approachable, down-to-earth and qualified therapist. I provide a calm and confidential place to explore whatever issues you're facing.

Using careful listening, considered questioning and mindfulness-based tools, I’ll help you explore how you can take charge of your difficulties and struggles rather then allow them to be in charge of you.

I have particular experience of supporting people to;

  • build self-esteem
  • manage anxiety and depression
  • understand and reduce anger levels
  • create and manage more satisfying relationships with partners, family, friends and colleagues

As a former volunteer Bereavement Counsellor for Marie Curie Cancer Care, I've also worked extensively with those experiencing loss, trauma and the anticipatory grief that often accompanies the impending death of a loved-one.

I’m a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BAPC) and operate in line with their ethical framework.

I charge £40 for the initial session and £55 for 55 minutes thereafter.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold the Spectrum Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy which means I have completed over 700 hours of face-to-face training at Spectrum Centre for Humanistic Psychotherapy and continue my supervision and professional development there.

I work in a practical and friendly way, drawing on a number of different approaches including Gestalt, Formative Psychology and Mindfulness Techniques. I have also completed an additional 12 month training programme with Beyond Chocolate designed to give people the practical steps and tools they need to create a happier and more satisfying relationship with food, eating and body esteem.

Before retraining as a psychotherapist, I spent over 20 years writing and editing for some of the world's most successful magazines and newspapers including Cosmopolitan, Red, Marie Claire, Redbook and The Sunday Times.

I am a Member of the BACP and am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Ethical Guidelines for Researching Counselling and Psychotherapy (where practitioners undertake research) and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure for the time being in force

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Eating Issues

  • Compulsive Undereating
  • Compulsive Overeating
  • Dieting/Calorie Counting
  • Over-exercising


I offer an initial session for £40 then £55 for a 55 minute session.

If you require low-cost sessions, please contact me to discuss your circumstances.

This may be the first time you have considered therapy, or you may be returning to it. Either way, you can call or email for an informal chat about how we might work together.

If you decide to book an initial session, we will explore what brings you to therapy or counselling. At the end of that session you can decide whether the type of therapy I offer is the right fit for you. I usually suggest we work together for a period of at least 6 weeks and then assess what frequency will best support you.

You are not obliged to continue if you are not completely comfortable and I will tell you if I think a different therapist or style of therapy would be more supportive of your goals.
