I offer counselling and psychotherapy for adults, teenagers and children and have many years of experience in helping individuals, couples and families. I am happy to offer both short-term and longer-term work with any client(s).
I can help with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues and trauma - including post-traumatic stress disorder, abuse, bullying and assault.
I have experience in post-adoption work and I have an interest in the treatment of post-natal depression.
Along with my private practice, my work in the NHS has included 7 years as a GP practice counsellor and 5 years in the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service.
I offer life coaching, both with individuals and groups, offering practical and organisational-focused solutions, in the workplace if required.
I would describe my work now as integrative in that I incorporate psychodynamic, mindfulness, CBT and systemic approaches.. This enables me to deliver the most appropriate help to each client with whom I work.
Please do contact me - with no obligation - to discuss how I can help you.

British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy
Health Care Professions Council
EMDR Association, UK & Ireland
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.
