About me

Are you feeling down?                                                                        Suffering from anxiety, low mood, overwhelmed with fears or stressed out from life or relationship problems?

I have 20 years of experience and offer affordable constructive, down-to-earth therapy in the comfort of your own home or office by Zoom - some of my clients prefer to go somewhere private like their cars.

Please see the full list of issues I have experience in below.

I work with couples and individuals who want to change their life, as I believe you know there are solutions to everything if you are given the respect, space and support from a trusted understanding but professional therapist. I offer affordable, gentle but solution-focused techniques that work.

I have created a unique and specialised high-quality package for business people and entrepreneurs for 3 people per year. This is accessible with an extensive interview only.

I have qualified professionally in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, NLP Couple therapy and Mindfulness.

Having specialised in many areas,  including Anxiety & Depression, work-related problems, Drink and Drug Misuse, Bereavement & Couple Counselling - I support clients with passion and honesty.

I run Mindfulness programs for individuals & groups and have trained with Oxford and Bangor University.
I've worked in drink and drug treatment centres, the homeless, and the public sector. It's a deep privilege to be part of the therapeutic process, where clients arrive with difficulties, who eventually evolve, and are enlightened in themselves, reaching a positive sense of well-being.

I am grounded, real and spontaneous, with a sense of warmth and humour, clients work at their own pace, I encourage positive change and offer alternative ideas to problems, so you can choose individual and specific solutions to meet your needs.

I work within the NHS which has given me a depth of knowledge working in this public care environment.

Whatever your problem, give me a ring now, for an informal chat, or text (078 0800 9978) or send an email ( outlining your issues and your contact details, and when you're available to ring back.

EAP or organisation need to contact me for fees. - Thank you

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.
