About me

Life can be tough. You may be feeling anxious, sad, angry or overwhelmed.  Perhaps you feel stuck in a moment and need some help moving through it. Whatever may lead you to seek therapy, we will work collaboratively to look at what is going on for you at this time.

Psychotherapy and Counselling provides a safe and confidential environment where exploration and interaction with the therapist can lead to new awareness. Together we can explore what feels difficult at this time in your life and in turn, this can lead to a richer understanding of your feelings, anxieties and relationships.

I work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem bereavement, complex trauma, relationship difficulties, work stress problems and coping with anger.

I am a qualified Psychotherapist and counsellor, and have a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. I have Public Indemnity Insurance and regularly undertake continuous personal development training.

In addition I am an EMDR therapist offering EMDR to clients experiencing symptoms of trauma, either through adverse childhood experiences or single incident trauma. I am a member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland (T0281).

Corona virus update:  At this current time I am able to offer in person as well as online or telephone sessions for new and existing clients, in a Covid secure environment.  Do get in touch if you are struggling to understand and manage your feelings during this unprecedented period in all our lives. Stay safe.

If you wish to make an appointment or ask me any questions do make contact using the form at the top of my profile, my website or by phone.

I look forward to working with you.

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.
