About me

I believe that with a little support, most of us can sort out the challenges of our lives. My therapy focus is to help you find the solutions that work for you. At present I provide video conferencing counselling sessions.

I have managed a well-being service in a large organisation covering counselling, mediation, team building and stress management for the past few years and enjoy seeing people grow healthily - even within stressful environments, when they have the tools to do so.  I believe this is possible for anyone.

Depending on the issue I can offer short (6 - 12 sessions) or long-term therapy support to individuals or groups.

Most people feel anxious, stressed or low at some point in their lives but often try to struggle through on their own. I understand how daunting it can be to seek professional advice but I have successfully helped many people with a wide variety of problems.

My integrative approach to therapy ensures that I am able to offer a bespoke treatment plan based on an individual’s requirements, rather than offer a ‘one size fits all’ approach. I will be open with you about this in the assessment and clearly explain what I can offer you, so you feel comfortable in knowing what to expect.

I draw from a range of psychotherapeutic perspectives including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), Transactional Analysis (TA), Psychodynamic and Humanistic therapies, depending on the needs and wishes of clients.  Working through your worries and identifying challenging thoughts, emotions and behaviours will help you to make a better sense of your current and past difficulties as these are often related.

You do not need be crystal clear about your own reasons or goals for coming into therapy. My aim, both initially and throughout therapy, is to help you understand this more fully; those areas of your life that may feel difficult, painful, unfulfilled or stuck. This understanding can be useful by itself, but it can also help you to make decisions about those things you may wish to change, and come to terms with those things that you can't.

I provide an open, sensitive and confidential space where you will be met with respect and acceptance.

My main aim is to help you to achieve a deeper understanding of yourself and as a result to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

I offer a free 30-minute telephone consultation before we meet for an assessment to answer any queries you may have and discuss possible therapy to suit your needs.

I charge £60 for a 50-minute session of counselling.

My other rates are:

£50 for 60 minutes of clinical supervision for counsellors working in private practice and
£75 for 90 minutes of clinical supervision for counsellors working in private practice. 

£60 for 1 hour of clinical supervision for counsellors working within an organisation and

Further information

Having worked for the NHS for over eight years and managed a service in the NHS for five years, I understand the structure and the processes used as well as the unique pressures and stress staff can experience.  The past year has held unprecedented stress and change for many staff.  For this reason I offer limited spaces of low cost therapy specifically to NHS staff.
