About me

I have many years experience as an NHS psychotherapist treating moderate to severe psychological issues. I also lectured at the University of Southampton in counselling, psychotherapy and forensic mental health.

I am experienced in working with adults, children, adolescents and young people, dealing with a wide range of issues.

Each person comes to therapy with a unique history and way of being. I tailor my work to fit these individual needs.

Having trained and practiced in a range of Therapeutic models enables me to assess the best approach for my client's particular needs. However, research shows that the most important factor in sucessful therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. This is central to my practice.

My NHS work included running clinics both within the psychiatric hospital and in the community

I have also managed a multi-disciplinary psychological service.

Some of the issues I may be able to help with include:



Relationship issues

Self harm

Eating disorders

Past abuse

Low self esteem

Personality disorder


Anger Management

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 15 years of solid experience across a range of services. This has included working for the NHS as a Specialist Psychotherapist and Lecturing at the University of Southampton in Intergrative Therapy.

I have a Psychodynamic diploma, Humanistic Certificate and Transactional analysis 101. I am experienced in facilitating both group and individual therapy in a range of models.

I am registered with the British Assosciation for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework.

Member organisations

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.

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