About me

I'm a qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, bringing together aspects of recognised approaches in the way that suits you best. In addition to my private practice I am a member of the Counselling Service at the Psychosynthesis Trust and have worked as a counsellor at a GP practice.

I work with adults at all stages of life and with a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, relationship problems and sexual and emotional abuse. I have a special interest and experience in Asperger's Syndrome, work-related issues and the later stages of life.

My style is relational, warm and completely accepting. As a Registered Member of UKCP and BACP,  I work within their ethical frameworks. I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work and invest in my continued professional and personal development as a counsellor.

It's courageous to take the first step to find a therapist. If you feel ready I hope you will take the next one. When I receive your email I'll contact you to arrange a session for us to get to know each other and decide if we'd like to work together. People often feel the benefits of this very first session in being able to clarify their thoughts and have someone's complete attention.

If we decide to work together we will agree six sessions initially and then review. At that stage we could agree to continue with another six sessions, with open-ended therapy or to finish our work together. Review and reflection is an integral part of ongoing therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis Trust. The course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and awarded by Middlesex University.

I bring to counselling and coaching many years of experience helping people realise their potential. For over fifteen years I was a consulting director at professional services firm PwC, coaching leaders, developing teams and creating work environments where people felt valued and motivated. I worked in both public and private sectors.

I have an MA in Creative Writing and Personal Development from the University of Sussex and an MSc in Human Resource Management from Southbank University.

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.
