About me


Key experience: Anxiety / Sadness / Relationships 

While there can be a specific reason to seek therapy, it’s not always clear.  At any age we can find ourselves out of our depth, and/or in the midst of despair.

Perhaps you have got to a stage where you are wanting something to change, or you would like to feel differently.  Perhaps something has happened to you and that event plays on your mind.

It can be helpful to understand some of the ways in which you are behaving, particularly if relationships are challenging, or breaking down.

Maybe you simply don’t know what is going on, and you just need a safe, quiet space in which to contemplate the anxiety and/or depression that you are experiencing.

There are so many situations that are naturally stressful and/or overwhelming, yet many of us feel that they should be manageable and dealt with alone.  This lack of sharing and self-reliance can lead to feelings of loneliness, resentment and often to an increased need for food, alcohol, working, spending or screen devices as a source of comfort and/or retreat.

If you feel ready to start therapy, your first step is to email me to arrange an initial consultation.  This appointment gives you the chance to find out whether I am someone you can comfortably talk to, and feel safe with.  It is helpful if you let me have a brief outline of what is troubling you, and what you are seeking from therapy.  I will confirm our arrangement in an e-mail.  We will then meet at my consulting room - a safe, comfortable (well-ventilated) space in which we can work together.  The setting is at all times private and confidential, as is all communication between us.  Then, if you decide you would like to proceed with therapy, we will fix a time to meet each week for 50 minutes.

I know beginning therapy might feel daunting, but it can be a relief knowing that your appointment is set up, and therapy is about to begin.

Member organisations


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.
