About me

Welcome!  I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist providing short or long term counselling/psychotherapy. I am an empathic and sensitive person with passionate drive to make a difference to individuals and/or organisations.

I believe that we are all entitled to support or help at times in our lives and given the right environment people have the ability to heal and grow.  As a therapist I seek to create a safe and confidential space where individuals feel welcome and not judged but accepted and understood; that they are able to explore their issues or difficulties, allowing greater awareness in order to make better choices for themselves.

Training, qualifications & experience

Masters Degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy

“Let the beauty we love be what we do” (Rumi)

I have been a Counsellor for over 20 years and a psychotherapist for 10 years.  I have considerable experience on a broad spectrum of client issues providing short and long-term counselling/psychotherapy within voluntary, private and public sectors. I have worked effectively with clients, male and female, ages 16-80; people from various cultural backgrounds and with varying disabilities.

I have a specialist interest in working with people who have Long Term Conditions and run Groups to help people with this throughout the year.
