About me

I have been working with clients since 1989. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. My aim is to enable you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

Talking to a therapist gives you the opportunity to explore your concerns and can lead the way to you discovering creative solutions to your problems. You may realise that you have more choices in life than you thought. Sometimes people come to see me because they need to resolve some unfinished business from their past that is holding them back.

People come to see me for many different reasons. Here are some examples: relationship problems, stress, depression, anxiety, loss, bereavement, low self-esteem, experiences of abuse, anger, work problems, addictions and sexual issues. Clients also come for personal development, to get to know themselves better or because they feel dissatisfied with their lives.

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.


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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
