Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work stress, anger, or if you just feel you need to talk to someone, getting in touch with a therapist is the first step.
I can offer you a safe, warm and confidential space where you will be able to express your concerns. We will work together to achieve your goals. I believe that with the help of a therapist, it is possible to understand yourself better, and to live a more fulfilled and satisfied life.
I am a qualified psychotherapist with a vast amount of experience. I have worked as a therapist for the NHS, as well as in the voluntary sector.
Prior to this, I used to work in finance, and I took some time out to travel. I currently work in a prison with young offenders specialising in addiction, and have my own private practice.
Sessions are 50 minutes long, and occur on a weekly basis. I offer short term and long term therapy work.
If you are considering therapy, or if you have any questions, please contact me and I will be happy to discuss them with you prior to your first appointment.
I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
