About me

I am a BACP Registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor, working both in person, online and by telephone. I offer sessions during the day, evening and weekends. If you feel like you want to speak to someone about what is going on for you, get in touch with me to discuss how I can support you.

I’m a qualified Existential Psychotherapist and Counsellor, and also have a Masters in Psychology. I support people to explore and understand their predicaments, to work with the tensions and paradoxes in life, help make sense of things and to find new meanings and ways to make peace with what life throws our way.

Life can feel overwhelming at times. Whether you are going through a tough period due to circumstances or life’s events, feeling stuck, lost, alienated or are seeking to find purpose and meaning in your life, you may want the help of a professional therapist that will lend a kind ear and personal space to talk about this.

I also have a Masters in Occupational Psychology, with many years’ experience working in organisations. So, whilst much of my therapeutic work centres around many aspects of the human predicament, I also specialise in working with workplace and career difficulties. This includes redundancies and/or job loss, career confusion, workplace bullying and other matters relating to our working lives.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
