About me

I am a qualified and accredited psychotherapist and counsellor with 20 years' experience of working with a diverse range of people and issues. I have a down-to-earth approach to therapy and am committed to providing a comfortable, respectful and safe space for you to begin talking.

Many people who take up therapy or counselling find their difficulties hard to define or describe - perhaps things just don't feel right, you feel lost or disconnected? You don't need to have a particular issue or problem to come and talk to me . Sometimes we find ourselves isolated or we realise that partners, families and friends are unable to offer the kind of help we need. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space to talk things over, with the aim of helping you to make sense your situation and explore your options.

I can work with you on a long or short term basis, and we can meet in person, on the 'phone or via Skype. Skype counselling sessions offer more flexibility if, for example, you work shifts, travel for work, work from home or have mobility issues.

I have a particular interest in working with people who identify as LGBTQ+. Throughout my private and voluntary sector career I have worked to promote access to talking therapies for gender, relationship and sexuality diverse (GRSD) clients.
