I offer online psychotherapy for those seeking support during tough and stressful times. Sometimes the difficulties are quite clear, anxiety, depression, bereavement, trauma, relationship difficulties or a break up. Other times, the issue is less clearly defined and felt as a sense of being lost and sad, or lacking direction and meaning in life.
The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for a process of healing and transformation and the guiding principles of my work are to offer a safe, supportive and confidential space to develop this relationship and explore all that is going on for you, particularly in this difficult time of Covid-19.
I have been working in a therapeutic capacity both within agencies and in private practice since 2004. Depending on your needs, I can work on a short term basis for a set number of sessions, or long term. I understand that the first step can be daunting and reaching out is a very important and courageous first step in the process.

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.
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.
