I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy, in a safe and supportive environment, to individuals and to couples.
Talking to a therapist about your thoughts and feelings, when you are feeling distressed by difficult events or are troubled by something, can help you to work out what is bothering you. It can also provide a time and space to explore new possibilities, which in turn may lead you to make positive changes in your life.
There are many reasons why someone might come to therapy. I have worked with clients on a range of different problems and concerns, including:
Anxiety and stress
Issues around self-esteem and self-worth
Loss of meaning and lack of purpose in life
Bereavement and loss
Issues around identity and sexual identity
Obsessive feelings and behaviour
This list is not exhaustive, and whether you want to explore painful past events in your life, or the uncertainty you are feeling about what the future might hold, therapy can provide a confidential place to talk about your concerns.
I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is central to the success of therapy. It is important for you to choose the right therapist. If you feel I can help, please get in touch with me.

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.
