UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor

About me

During the current Covid-19 crisis I am offering video counselling, which can be set up very easily. It may also be possible for us to meet face to face.

If you think you may need therapy, you are not alone.  At times, we are all faced with confusing or painful situations, struggles with relationships, feelings of dissatisfaction, confusion, low self-esteem, anxiety, stress or depression, painful losses, traumatic or unhappy memories, difficult decisions or the need for change. I can help you to explore your difficulties and provide you with the support you need to find your own answers.

Everyone has the capacity to cope with crisis, resolve problems, develop personal insight and make decisions, but having support and encouragement when the going gets tough can make a huge difference.

I will offer you a safe, confidential and supportive space where you can talk about what you are experiencing and how you are feeling. I will help you to identify choices, solutions or changes that you may want to make. I will not analyse you, judge you or try to impose my values and beliefs on you. I will offer you my attention, respect and respect your individuality.

I am fully qualified and registered by the UKCP, which requires a considerably higher level of training and experience than BACP Accreditation. After qualifying as a counsellor, I trained for 5 more years and gained a Masters Degree in psychotherapy. I have more than 20 years experience offering counselling and/or psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I'm registered with BUPA but the majority of my clients are self-funded.
