About me

Any kind of relationship problem can leave us feeling miserable and anxious. I will work with you on any emotional difficulty that you are experiencing, either as a couple or individually, in a relationship or single.

I also specialise in working with loss. This can cover so many issues including bereavement, loss of a relationship, job and health amongst others.

I will work at a pace that is right for you which also means that I can work short term or for longer.    

My interest in emotional well being began over 30 years ago when working with Local Authority Mental Health Trusts. I saw first hand how we can experience difficulties in our family, friendship and work relationships as well as our intimate relationships. This can be something new and unexpected or it can seem like we are repeating patterns. Sometimes we may not know what it is ourselves, and feel confused and anxious about wanting things to be different but not knowing what to do to make the changes. Counselling can help to de-clutter some of the thoughts that can feel overwhelming and confusing. Having more of an understanding of why we think and react the way that we do can help us to make those changes and give us choices.

I will respond respectfully to your agenda and will not judge you for the difficulties that you are experiencing.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).

Additional information

I charge between £70 and £80 per session depending on whether I am working with you individually or as a couple.

I ask for 48 hours notice if a session is to be cancelled and request a flat fee of £20 for any appointments not cancelled within this period. This helps me to recover some of the the costs that I will incur, including the cost of the room which I have hired specifically for our session. For any appointments cancelled on the day I ask for the fee to be paid in full. Please do let me know if this is going to cause you any difficulty and of course I do appreciate that emergencies crop up that are beyond our control. Many Thanks
