About me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to people going through stressful times.

Are work, family or other relationships troubling you? Perhaps you are feeling alone, overwhelmed, or can’t see the woods for the trees? Or suffering with symptoms like anxiety, depression, phobias or panic attacks?

We would start a conversation about what’s troubling you. Perhaps something has changed, or needs to? I will try to understand and won’t judge you, and we can start to make sense of what’s happening together. It's likely you will start to feel differently about your life, symptoms will become more manageable, or dissipate. You will gain clarity, more confidence and perhaps a deeper sense of meaning in your life.

Some people feel they are transformed, while for others it's a more subtle, but usually positive experience.

Training, qualifications & experience

I had counselling myself when I was in my 30’s, when I was working in a corporate career and it helped me so much that it inspired me to retrain as a therapist. I now have an MSc Integrative Psychotherapy from a highly regarded training centre for psychotherapists, Metanoia Institute in London. I am a Registered Member of the BACP.

Member organisations



Free telephone consultation: I don’t charge for an initial telephone consultation as this can help you decide how you feel about working with me.

Further information


I currently work at the Pim Clinic, Caversham, near Reading in Berkshire, and my practice in Crays Pond, near Goring-on-Thames in South Oxfordshire.

Counselling sessions

Sessions last for 50 minutes, and are usually on the same day and at the same time. If you need a more flexible approach, we can discuss this at our first session.

Cancellation policy

As I hold a regular time for you, and cannot fill your time with other clients, I need a minimum of 24 hours' notice for cancelling a session, or you will need to pay.
