About me

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist with over 25 years experience of therapeutic work with adults and young people.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and I abide by the code of ethics of both these professional bodies.

Can talking about the things which are troubling you really help ?

I believe it can.

Many people experience a time in their lives when anxieties seem to overwhelm them. Talking about your fears and anxieties in a safe, non-judgmental space with an experienced, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist can allow you to explore your emotional issues and help you come to terms with them.
My therapeutic approach can help you to explore and understand the less obvious, unconscious aspects of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. I believe that gaining insight into the nature of underlying emotional conflicts can bring insight and a sense of relief which opens up the possibility of changing unhelpful patterns, that were previously repeated without self-awareness.
If you are feeling you need to talk about matters that are causing you anxiety and concern, contact me for a free consultation.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
