About me

I am a highly experienced, accredited and Registered psychotherapist and a qualified supervisor based in Farnham Surrey, working in the independent and public sectors.
I work with individuals and couples on a short term(16 sessions) and on an open ended basis.
I have a clinic in Farnham Surrey.
I have had many years experience running groups for the NHS, Alzheimer's society and private organisations.
I am a qualified clinical supervisor and work with therapists and counsellors who are qualified or in training and I am also qualified and have extensive experience in supervising groups of counsellors and trainee therapists.


I am able to offer online therapy via video link which is proving helpful during the Covid 19 outbreak.

I have worked with many different and diverse issues in the last twenty years including mental health issues, domestic violence, anxiety, trauma, stress, depression and work and organisational issues.

I have been trained using an integrative model and I am also trained psychodynamically and work extensively with attachment theory. I have found attachment theory useful for my clients with relationship difficulties and assisting couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship.
Please feel free to call me for an informal and confidential chat or e mail me if you prefer.

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.

Accredited register membership

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
