What I offer is to be your "ally" through life's challenges and changes - of which there are many. I will give you empathy, respect and honest feedback within a supportive professional relationship; together we will work through whatever issues you bring. My aim is that each person is able to be their real self and to lead a fulfilling life in connection with others - one that has meaning and purpose.
Concessionary telephone sessions available during the Corona crisis.
Training, qualifications & experience

I have diplomas in Counselling and Psychotherapy with the London Institute of Psychosynthesis and have done extensive further training. I am fully accredited with UKCP.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Adult attachment issues, eg difficulty forming and sustaining relationships, also support with online dating.
My fee is £45/hour but concessions are available for those on low income. Once we have met I offer telephone and email support as well as face to face sessions.
I find it deeply rewarding to assist people with their lives, relationships and in creating a lifestyle they are happy with.
