About me

I specialize in relationship therapy and am an experienced individual and Couples counsellor, qualified at post-graduate level to work with couples or individuals.   I work with clients who wish to explore their relationship difficulties, or perhaps talk through a specific issue that is concerning them.  There may be an immediate crisis, the aftermath of an affair or the impact of separation or divorce.  The aim of my work is to promote respectful, healthy relationships.

As a BACP accredited counsellor, I am also professionally qualified to work with individuals.

My years of working as a counsellor at The Cogwheel Trust (a counselling agency in Cambridge) and at Relate mean that I have experience of working with a wide variety of people on a range of difficulties.  My psychodynamic and systemic training helps me to think with you about your current situation, as well as to think about how what has happened in your past might be alive in the present.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
