I am a BACP accredited Psychotherapist working with Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy and Chairwork. I have been in practice since 2002 and have extensive experience in helping people overcome depression, anxiety and panic, low confidence, intrusive thoughts, obsessions, relationship and parenting difficulties, anger, life crisis, conflict, phobias, lack of self-esteem, stress, bereavement, etc.
I offer appointments online or on the telephone Mon and Tuesday 10-8 and face to face on Wednesday and Thursday 2-9. I can offer home visits in certain cases.
I offer a free introductory chat by telephone or video of about 15 min.
I help individuals, couples and families to develop a better and more compassionate understanding of their difficulties. I support my clients to find realistic and effective ways to change what is not working so well, so they can regain a sense of balance and wellbeing in their lives.
Having been a parenting adviser with Parentline Plus for 5 years, I have a special interest in relationship and communication issues within the family and with couples.
I also offer coaching and training for individuals and groups in assertiveness, Non-Violent Communication, overcoming stress, self awareness, parenting and anger management.
I have helped thousands of people overcome their problems. My approach tends to be intuitive and straight to the point and in my experience one can address many of our mental issues with relatively few sessions. I also provide long term therapy for those cases where that is necessary.

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.
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
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
