About me

Clients come to see me when they are struggling to resolve an issue, past or present, and it may be interfering with quality of life. All of us experience times of stress in our lives, but when family or friends can't help, and we are stuck with our thoughts and feelings, it can be helpful to talk things through with a trained professional.  I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and work from premises at my home in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.  I see clients with wide-ranging issues and my aims will be to help you:

- make better sense of things
- process your difficult thoughts and feelings
- reconnect or connect with your personal resources and strengths
- find possibilities for moving forward
- improve your quality of life

If you would like to contact me, please do so either by phone or email.  I have a confidential answer machine and respond daily to messages.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a Counsellor in 2006, and am a Senior Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a qualified and experienced supervisor of individuals and groups. I have been working in private practice since 2009; previous experience includes Practice Counsellor in Bucks surgeries, counsellor at a Bucks hospice and counsellor with Bucks Mind.

I originally trained as a Humanistic therapist; I work integratively, drawing upon person-centred, psychodynamic and attachment theories, as well as the neurobiology of trauma.

I am bound by the BACP's Ethical Framework.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Therapy can be hard work! It is important, therefore, that you are sufficiently comfortable with whoever you choose to work with, and feel some sense of connection with them. I offer a first session for you to get an idea of this; if after the first session you choose not to proceed for any reason, then there is no charge for the initial appointment.


I charge £50 and the session lasts for an hour.
