About me

Are you looking for counselling or psychotherapy?
I offer individual and group psychotherapy in Central Salisbury.
You might be suffering from anxiety, or having difficulties in your relationships with others, or feeling depressed or at a loss. Please do get in touch and we can work together to find a way forward.

It's understandable to feel unsure and hesitant about seeking help. It's a big step to take. Please give me a ring or send me a message. I'm always happy to discuss any questions. I manage all my own messages and can assure you of strict confidence in any communication we have.

I aim to respond promptly, usually within 1-2 days.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Group Analyst/Psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am a professional member of the Institute of Group Analysis. I have completed a long training to Master's level in Psychotherapy. I have to abide by strict codes of conduct.

In addition to my private practice I have clinical experience in various health settings: having worked as as a psychotherapist in outpatient NHS psychotherapy departments, and with GP’s in Health Centres. I have been involved in the training of counsellors and psychotherapists with Wessex Counselling Service. I facilitated an experiential group and currently support students individually. In addition to this I work with young people and children both within my private practice and within an established looked after children social enterprise company. I also run a once weekly analytic group in Salisbury.

I'm interested in the link between the body and the mind and have previously run a Group for those with breast cancer diagnoses.

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.
