About me

If you've got problems, I can help..

I am currently offering sessions online through Zoom

As a therapist I am happiest when I am genuinely able to make a difference to someone and help them feel better. I have had a great deal of experience of working with many different people, each one of them with their own unique story, and their own way of seeing the world, each one of them also with the problems that sometimes arise for all of us as human beings trying to live the best we can.

Maybe you feel anxious and don't know why?

Perhaps you've had things happen in your past that still seem to be affecting your life now?

The problems that many of us have aren't our fault, they are often due to how the human brain works.

Our brains, despite what we may sometimes think, are not all that helpful sometimes, and can be a bit out of date for the world we live in!

Our brains try their best to look after us and protect us but they are not always effective and instead can cause us pain and distress.  Understanding what  is happening and why can help you to change your feelings and emotions for the better.

I sucessfully work with many issues but have particular knowledge and expertise in issues arising from trauma, PTSD and anxiety.


I use findings from neuroscience coupled with an Integrative Counselling approach to help you sort things out.

I can help you understand why you feel as you do, explain what your brain is doing and show you ways to change that.

I offer support with your current situation and will work with you to help you find solutions to the things you want to change in your life.

I don't just sit there and listen, I see the counselling relationship as a dynamic one, in which we both take part.

I specialise in trauma but have experience with a wide range of issues including anxiety, self esteem, relationship problems and depression amongst others.

I am constantly updating my knowledge through research and academic work.At the moment I am working privately and also with two charities, which I really enjoy.

What next?

I realise that contacting a therapist can be scary (I remember when I had to see one as part of my training!), and I will do my best to put you at ease. I'm a warm and approachable person. So call for a chat first at no charge and sound me out!

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access
