About me

And Relationship Therapist.

I can provide counselling with a difference a blend of counselling, coaching and psycho-education.

Counselling – gaining an understanding of you, what drives you, what you do, why and how this affects you. Coaching – looking at ways to move forward, gaining solutions for a new way ahead and psycho-education – understanding you in terms of the psychology (as well as) within your relationships and gaining insight into why you find yourself feeling and acting as you do (and possibly how this may affect others).

I believe effective therapy means gaining an understanding of yourself, looking at repeating patterns in your life and what unconsciously drives you.  Gaining insight and understanding of oneself can be the key to unlocking the way to a calmer, happier and more fulfilling sense of Self.

I work for many organisations (including NHS and BUPA) in different capacities and frequently work (within a 6-8 week model) to good effect.  You can have as few or as many sessions as you wish but you will know when the work is done.

I am empathic, open and real and travel at your pace.

Quote from Analytical Psychologist Carl Jung:  ‘Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate’.

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.
