About me

Are you looking to make a positive change in your life? Are you wondering how to achieve this? Seeking a therapist with whom you are at ease, will be the first positive step towards making this change.  

My aim, is to walk alongside you, either as an individual, or as a couple for relationship therapy. 

As you develop your self-awareness and reconnect with your belief in yourself, discovering new positive ways of being ‘you’ and making choices in your life, which you are happy and comfortable with.

A small selection of the concerns, which I have worked successfully with:-

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Isolation, Trauma

Sexual, Physical and Emotional Abuse.


Love, Relationships, Affairs, Betrayal

So, whatever the personal challenge you are facing, I will be here to listen to you.

My Background and Counselling Experience

I have been working with people in crisis since 1991 and I have experience in the areas of trauma, sexual abuse and grief, although my work takes in many other areas of life experiences. In my early career, I worked for 22 years across health and social care in a variety of roles within the context of 'disability'. 

This work involved close liaison with patients, their family and friends and much of this work was face to face. It helped me to develop a deeper understanding and empathy for those experiencing huge life changes.

Alongside my Private Practice, I work in a specialist area, as a Practitioner working with both male and female survivors of sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and sexual violence.

As a qualified tutor, I have designed and delivered counselling training to both adult learners and professionals working in this area.  

I am also a Clinical Supervisor, working in depth with the relationship between Practitioner and Client.

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and a Registered member of the BACP. 

What this means for you, is that the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy guides my practice. 

Here’s what to do next

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership
