About me

Qualified therapist and supervisor  working with couples in distress and individuals.

There can be times in our lives when we face difficulties and painful situations; it’s in these times when talking to someone can help. Family and friends can be very helpful but sometimes we need to talk to someone who we don’t know who can listen to us impartially, with empathy and in confidence.

I am a positive, warm and experienced therapist running my own private practice. Alongside my private practice I work as the Chief Executive in a busy counselling agency where I work with couples, adults and families. I also deliver bespoke training days and mentor counselling trainees.

I have completed the Externship in Emotionally Focussed Couple Therapy (EFT)  with the British Emotionally Focussed Couple Training (BEFT).

I have completed the Supervision Training with CSTD Bath (Centre for Supervision, Training and Development). CSTD Bath is endorsed by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) as a "Recognised Supervision Training" and checks all UKCP's requirements for supervision training.

I would describe my counselling approach as integrative drawing on person-centred, emotionally focussed therapy (EFT) transactional analysis, psychodynamic, systemic and the spiritual in a significant way.

I have many years of experience and working for two charities has given me vast experience with a range of difficulties and presenting issues. I provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your concerns without judgement. All of your thoughts and feelings are important and need to be heard and honoured to gain understanding.

If you want to find out more, please call me to leave a message or email me and I will make contact with you within 24 hours. I am happy to speak with you on the phone before we meet if you will find that useful.

I offer appointments via zoom for 50 or 90 minutes and at our first meeting we will have the opportunity to explore what is bothering you and think about whether therapy is right for you at this time.

I work short and long term, whichever suits you and this is something we can discuss when we first meet. Once we have agreed to work together, we will decide on suitable times to meet.
