About me

I believe therapy can offer a safe space for self-discovery that provides you with an opportunity to creatively discover how you want to live. I am particularly inclined to listen to how an individual describes their world, as I believe each person experiences life in a unique way that can rarely be communicated to someone else.

As a psychotherapist, I have worked in settings with clients from the most varied backgrounds, who came to therapy for many reasons, including depression, the breakdown of a relationship, grieving, general anxiety and anxiety about specific topics such as their relationships, careers and health. I also focus on the metaphysical meaning of physical illness to improve wellbeing.

As much as family and friends may want to help their loved ones in such a situation, it can be challenging as it can put undue stress on their relationship. The fee for individuals is £70.

For couples:
My experience working with couples has included the following: emotional and physical intimacy difficulties, separation/divorce - including couples with children, infidelity, grieving and excessive use of anger.

I can facilitate a dialogue when communication has broken down, with the aim of re-establishing a common ground to resolve the issue. I appreciate how difficult it may be to open up to a third person, and I will endeavour to make this process as comfortable as possible by checking in with both of you throughout our sessions. The fee for couples is £120.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my work or to book an appointment.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
