About me

During this extremely challenging time, our levels of anxiety are very high. I  offer online, telephone, walk-and-talk outdoors or face-to-face sessions . I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, with wide life-experience in several countries.

I have previously worked as a Funeral Celebrant, so I am completely comfortable talking about issues around Death , Grief and Bereavement.

I am here to listen and offer you non-judgemental  and confidential support.

I am a humanistic psychotherapist, and draw on a variety of different therapeutic approaches, and I'm equally happy to work on short-term issues or enter into long term therapy with a client.

I have experience of working with groups and individuals from hugely diverse backgrounds.

As a former Theatre Practitioner, I have extensive experience of working with Actors and others in the Entertainment Industry.

The first step is to contact me for a quick chat or an email, and then you can hear a bit about how I work, and arrange a first session, probably online at the moment. At this first session we can get to know each other a bit more, and you can then decide if you would like us to work together.

During the current Covid-19 Emergency, I am available to give low-cost sessions to new clients needing support.

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.

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.

I am currently conduction my sessions on Zoom, on the phone or walk-and-talk in an outdoor setting.

Additional languages

Good French. Some Japanese.
