About me

Working with the core of an individual is, without a doubt, one of lives greatest privileges. The therapeutic relationship is unique between two people and can be transformational for both involved. It provides opportunities for deep exploration of the self and what it needs whether that be: healing, adjusting, clarity or growth. Understanding yourself as an human being, how you behave  in situations and how you relate to others is the key to personal growth and fulfilment. Pain, trauma, issues that cause distress or confusion and repeated patterns of behaviour can cause us to become stuck. Resolving these can help us move forward to realise potential in many areas of our lives.

Grounded in a relational approach, I offer integrative therapy that encompasses a range of techniques from a variety of theoretical frameworks such as: Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Trauma Model, Attachment, Gestalt, TA, Cognitive and Neuroscience. I have a varied professional career, working in education for over 20 years and which now includes working with individuals in therapy.

Please contact me for an initial meeting where we can talk about what you would like to bring to our sessions and if we are suited to work with each other.

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.
