About me

I am a psychotherapist who works online  both in the UK and internationally with adults and children. 

I have experience of general therapy practice as well as specific areas and these include:

Addiction and destructive behaviour patterns
Eating Disorders                                      Self Harm
Divorce and separation 
Traumatic life experiences 
Loss, grief and bereavement including baby loss
Depression, low mood and anxiety
Rape and sexual abuse (experienced in pre-trial therapy)
Child and Adolescent emotional, social and behavioural difficulties (ESBD Children in care                                     Group Therapy 

In addition to my own private practice I work with a leading Harley Street Addiction Treatment clinic. 

Before opening my private practice, I worked with specialist therapy services supporting clients with baby loss, child exploitation, rape and sexual abuse. While working as Professional Lead with a National Charity supporting families affected by criminal trauma I wrote and delivered the training programme for volunteer telephone listeners and counsellors.

Specific areas of therapeutic interest include working with children in the care of the local authority, private addiction treatment and criminal justice.

 I have previously enjoyed tutoring and supporting trainee counsellors on their journey to qualification.

Before qualifying in Humanistic Counselling at the University of Chichester I held a lengthy career spanning over 20 years working with vulnerable children and adults. Specialist roles included Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR) Case Manager with the National Probation Service, Education Liaison Officer in an inner-city provision (PRU), Youth Court Officer, Defence Team Court Clerk. While acting as the Bail and Remand Officer for South and South East Hampshire I chaired the Wessex Bail and Remand steering group and completed a professional certificate in Effective Practice (Youth Justice) with the University of Portsmouth.

About Therapy:

It does take courage to acknowledge that for whatever reason you are struggling to manage life as well as you might like. It doesn't always feel easy to accept that you need help to manage a historic or ongoing difficulty or to cope with a sudden and traumatic life experience. In therapy I offer you a confidential and non judgmental space to explore and process what it is that brings you here. 

Please do feel free to contact me in confidence to discuss your individual therapy needs.

*48hours notice is required to cancel an appointment. Cancellations with less than 48hours and missed appointments do require the session fee to be paid in full.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
