About me

Sometimes we struggle to understand issues that darken our days. I offer psychodynamic counselling which is a talking therapy that involves exploring both present and past aspects of your life.

As a counsellor I have worked with: depression, self-harm, retirement anxiety, exam/work stress, relationship breakdown and bereavement. My experiences, both personally and professionally, have involved working closely with diverse social and cultural considerations such as ethnicity, religion, sexuality, sibling rivalry and class.

I have 20 years previous experience as a personal trainer working with clients who wanted encouragement or support regarding issues including body image, ageing concerns, weight management and self-esteem.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and an insured member of the BACP. I have also broadened my training through studies at The Minster, Tavistock Relationships, Confer, WPF Therapy and The Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling. It is part of my ethical approach to continue my professional and personal development whilst under regular supervision.

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.

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.
