About me

I am a Surrey (Horley) and BACP (Accred.) therapist with over 30 years counselling experience. I have had an extremely varied career working in a variety of settings including healthcare services, media organisations, and charitable agencies. For 12 years I was the behind the scenes psychotherapist on 'This Morning' television programme on ITV and most recently had been working as an addiction therapist for a private healthcare service. I also regularly train other therapists in telephone counselling and online skills and have led training seminars on domestic violence, addiction and stress management. I run my own practice from Horley in Surrey and have a wealth of experience of working with a wide variety of problems, having counselled many hundreds of clients.

There are a number of reasons why a client might seek my services. For some, there may has been an issue that dates back many years - something that has been getting in the way of them moving on. Others may feel they are stuck and unsure of how to break the deadlock of a situation. Many people find that therapy enables a deeper understanding of themselves and their life experience. Whilst it doesn't automatically offer all the answers therapy does allow the client the personal space with a non judgmental other - to really explore issues and perhaps meet themselves for the very first time.

I adapt my counselling method to the particular needs and personality of each individual client. Sessions tend to be conversational in style and are a collaborative process, whereby the client and myself develop a clear picture of his/her world, relationships and feelings. Sessions last for 50 minutes and take place at home usually at a regular time each week. I work weekdays, offering both daytime and evening sessions. Some clients may have different requirements and I cater for this by providing online and telephone counselling.

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 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.
