About me

Feeling down? Stressed, anxious or depressed? I can help. We all have our "stuff" - even aside from the current pandemic, life can be hard. Pressure of work, relationship difficulties, painful memories or trauma, feelings of worthlessness, difficulty sleeping: modern life can feel overwhelming. Just like our physical health, everyone has times when their mental wellbeing is not at its best.

I can help you manage and move on from mental distress and reclaim a sense of joy in your life. I offer a safe, confidential and compassionate space for you to explore your inner life, and an awareness of up to date psychological and neuroscientific research that can help you move beyond your current problems in a short time frame.

I am currently working with clients living in the UK exclusively online via Zoom. When the covid pandemic has passed, I will resume seeing clients in person in North Cambridge. Why not send me a message or give me a call for a free, confidential chat, to see if we can work together to help you find a more untroubled and peaceful life?

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in counselling, a BSc honours degree in Psychology and an MSc in Artificial Intelligence. Since qualifying, I have worked in schools, a number of Cambridge University colleges, with EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) providers, and with private clients. I have also been a tutor on a counselling course and delivered mental health training to Cambridge University staff and students. I am an accredited registrant member of the National Counselling Society and subscribe to their code of ethics, and have full professional liability insurance

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

When I return to face to face work, my counselling room will have wheelchair access.
