About me

Many people find that talking to a counsellor is a way of feeling listened to and supported This can then allow us to explore problems in more depth, find a new sense of direction and creativity. In particular looking at current and past relationships is an invaluable way of seeing and unlocking negative patterns and finding new ways of connecting.

As we continue to talk there is also the opportunity to explore issues such as anxiety, depression and low self esteem in more depth, to make connections and understand how they affect relationships.

We may also have experienced longer term issues, possibly connected to family background. Reflecting on these with a counsellor and understanding their connection with current feelings and behaviour can give a fresh sense of perspective and direction.

I am experienced in a number of approaches for working with anxiety, depression, low self esteem and relationship issues. I also have a particular interest in problems around work related stress.


I charge £30 for an initial consultation.

My  rates are £55 evenings and £45 daytime with some reduced rates (during the day) for those on a low income.

How I work

I work as an Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and central to this is the belief that there are common factors to most types of counselling that make them effective. One of the most important of these is an attentive, warm and supportive approach.

I also use a number of counselling approaches depending on the person coming to counselling and what they wish to achieve from it. This may involve focusing on specific problems or a chance to explore concerns in a more open way.

What to expect on your first visit

The first contact with a counsellor can sometimes seem daunting.

However I aim to be informal and helpful and when we first meet we will talk about what is troubling you and I will ask about some history and personal and family background. We will then discuss possible approaches within counselling or psychotherapy.

You can then decide whether this is the right approach for you and whether you would like to continue.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have extensive experience of working within the NHS in an outpatient department in a hospital, within GP surgeries and for NHS Primary Healthcare for people suffering from anxiety, depression and relationship problems.

I currently work as a counsellor for a charity providing support for those affected by cancer.

I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I'm also a trained and accredited as an Interpersonal Psychotherapist (IPT) which is an NICE approved, therapy to help those with depression and associated relationship problems.

Prior to becoming a counsellor I worked in the fields of teaching,  and project management for a number of public and private organisations. This experience in particular, has given me some insight into some of the problems of working both in small and large organisations and I have a particular interest in how the stresses of the workplace can be managed.

I have been practising mindfulness and meditation techniques for over 30 years and where appropriate integrate these into my therapy practice.
