About me

Sometimes, friends and family are not enough. Sometimes you and your partner seem not to be able to resolve your relationship issues or difficulties on your own. Maybe the anxiety, depression, worry and fear are too frightening or embarrassing, run too deeply, or the impact on those close to you just unknown.

If you want to talk about what is happening in your life, I can provide you with that space. To be yourself, speak out those unspoken thoughts, put words to those feelings, we can walk together into your dark places.

During this time of global difficulty, I am now working with all forms of online communication, whether that be the telephone, video, or through secure email or messaging.

I offer short and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy to support you in whatever way you need, whether you seek support alone or with your partner.

You only need to give me a ring, text or email me, to make contact and start to settle your worry.

I am a qualified, registered and accredited with the BACP as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and with the UKCP as a Registered Psychotherapist.

I have a Bachelors and a Masters degree from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham.
