I am an experienced therapist, warm and easy to talk to. I help couples work through their relationship issues in a safe, comfortable and supportive environment.
Intimate relationships bring rewards and challenges. Even in the most loving relationships, issues such as family, money, trust and sex can cause tension and distress. This may leave us feeling angry, fearful or isolated. Even without such issues, we may become stuck in our ways and stuck in our relationships.
I work with my clients to address matters which are difficult to face or which may not be easy to see. We work through your patterns, thoughts and feelings, some of which may not serve you or your relationship. In my experience as a therapist and a client, this work leads to positive change and growth both for the individual and the couple.

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).
