About me

There is no prescription to follow to ensure 'a cure' because I don't believe you're broken, think of me as being here to help you facilitate you own change.

Why doesn't one size of therapy fit all? Because every person is different. Qualified to use many theories alongside CBT, I work with what suits you; if you don't like it we won't use it, no problem, this time it's all about you.

Sessions last for 50 minutes and in that time we'll explore what's most important to you, no matter how small, after all that's why you're here; you need to change something in your life and believe me, nothing can shock me!

Having a background in the creative arena, Acting, Writing, Presenting, Teaching etc means you get to access my wealth of experience to do with anxiety, panic attacks, feeling sad, depression, as well as bereavement, performance and social anxiety, general anxiety disorder, family and relationship issues like affairs or betrayal, sexual or communication issues etc and the LGBTQ community problems, including transgender and transitioning, plus BAME issues like diaspora.

I also devise and deliver corporate Mental Health Webinars. A fully qualified Clinical Supervisor, I work with counsellors, psychotherapists, mental health professionals, corporate firms and trainees.

Contact me and I promise to respond the same day.

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.

Key details

DBS check

Online therapy takes place in the comfort of your own home; no travel needed. Some people like to use their bedroom, a quiet spot in the garden (if it's not too cold) or even the car! Whatever works for you works for me.
