About me

I welcome clients to my practice in the peaceful Cambridgeshire village of East Hatley.

Life can be very challenging, particularly at the moment, and many people find themselves facing difficulties relating to relationships, depression, anxiety and loss.

If you find yourself struggling, I believe I can help. I am an experienced therapist who has supported many clients over thousands of hours to overcome a wide range of challenges. 
My aim is to provide you with the space and time to examine issues which may be difficult to discuss, even with friends and family, in the context of a warm, confidential and non-judgemental counselling relationship. I believe that our response to current distress often originates in early experiences and relationships but, with support, we all have the resources to find our resilience, to overcome obstacles and, ultimately, to live life in a more fulfilling way.

Sometimes, people hesitate to begin therapy because they are anxious that beginning to talk about feelings may lead to them becoming overwhelmed. We will always work at a pace that is comfortable, safe and appropriate for you.

In our first session, we will discuss together the issues which you would like to think about in counselling and decide how we might take things forward.

Sessions last for 50 minutes and usually take place at the same time each week.

Training, qualifications & experience


I hold Accredited status with both the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and The National Counselling society. 
I hold a Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling. My training was integrative, which means that I can draw on elements from a range of therapy models depending on the individual needs of my client.

I have undertaken additional training in working with the impact of trauma, including EMDR.

Before qualifying as a counsellor I worked for a number of years for a major accountancy firm and then an investment bank. Working in these environments provided me with an insight into the day to day pressures and demands that many people experience in their efforts to manage the personal and the professional, and brings a ‘real world’ perspective to my practice.

In previous counselling roles I was one of a three person team who managed the centre where I was based. I also provided guidance and mentoring to a local counselling charity.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
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.
