About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor, meaning that I use a combination of theories - Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), with the aim of best matching the approach to the client.

I currently work for the NHS Let’s Talk Service, part of IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies). Within the organisation I have gained vast counselling experience as well as more recently, the role of Assistant Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, which involves co-facilitating wellbeing courses and telephone screening. I also work as a counsellor for the NHS Gloucestershire Pregnancy Advisory Service and SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre).

I also worked for Terence Higgins Trust, working with issues such as living with HIV and HIV related problems as well as sexuality.

I am open in my approach and welcome people of all ages and backgrounds and with a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, panic disorder, panic attacks and relationship issues.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and abide by their Code of Ethics. For further information, see www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/

In my personal life I am a keen singer and cook. I have a strong passion for learning about diet and nutrition and am interested in how the food we eat contributes to our overall wellbeing.


I practice in a therapy room in my home in the centre of Gloucester. There is plenty of parking available outside. Please let me know in advance if you have any special requirements regarding accessibility.
