About me

I imagine you are considering how therapy may be supportive . You could be experiencing specific difficulties, feeling overwhelmed or stuck. Maybe you are simply seeking more helpful and satisfying ways to live and improve professional or intimate relationships. I welcome your unique concerns and offer a warm approach backed with clinical experience. I aim to offer a safe place where you feel respected and supported as we give attention to the challenges that may be at times difficult, uncomfortable or frustrating. Together we can work towards improved hope and outcomes that may be much needed or desired.
I use a Gestalt framework interested in the whole person including the connection between the body and the mind. Encouraging the exploration of the self and your relationships, life circumstances and beliefs. Working in the present to stimulate self awareness that could help to identify root causes of dissatisfaction and offer new possibilities and options.

From my own experience I understand it may be difficult to make this first step. It is important to find the most suitable therapist for you. I warmly encourage you to get in touch for a complimentary 15 minute session which can be online, telephone or face to face. 

Sessions take place in a purpose built therapy room set within private garden space with side entrance and parking.

Tuesdays I offer Walk and Talk Therapy. This is set in acres of stunning Private woodland in Warwickshire CV35 which I hire for the session, along with a private therapy room should the weather or your preference change. There is allocated parking and WC facilities.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
