About me

Engaging in therapy can be life changing which is why I believe it is so important to find the right therapist for you.

Working with me to establish a safe and secure therapeutic relationship which enables you to discover your sense of self and become the first building block for whatever changes you wish to create could be the best investment you ever make.

I am committed to my investment in my clients and can offer you a safe, secure and comfortable environment in which you will have the space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours without fear of being judged.

Transactional Analysis underpins all of my work and I am a firm believer of "I'm OK, You're OK". I work in an integrative manner using my skills effectively to help you how you need it most.

If you are struggling communicating with others, having difficulty in your relationships personally or professionally or just need some space to talk and be listened to then get in touch and we can discuss your needs and work out if therapy with me is an option you want to take.

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.
