About me

People often look for therapy when

  • they want or need to make a change or a decision but something holds them back
  • facing trauma long ago or recent,
    • (physical, sexual, violence, war, accidents, work related events, disasters)
  • they don't feel good about who or what they are
    • (lack of confidence, fear of rejection, anger, repeating mistakes)
  • they feel overwhelmed by emotions and/or life events

What I can offer you

  • Online (Zoom, Skype, VSee, WhatsApp) and face to face sessions
  • My services as a mature, experienced therapist; compassionate and non-judgmental.
  • An opportunity to explore how you can live a life dictated not by your fears or your past but by unacknowledged strengths and self-awareness.
  • Several therapy models including EMDR Therapy and the use of CBT skills.
  • In person sessions in Horsham, West Sussex

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
