About me

'Calm seas do not make skilful sailors.' The therapeutic process can help you to navigate through painful experiences, and to steady yourself during a time of crisis. Therapy is about gaining better self-understanding in order to facilitate change. Feeling more at ease with your self is the goal.

I am a warm, caring and empathetic person, who is passionate about the therapeutic relationship. I work short and long term with individuals and couples.

I offer a safe place in which you can talk about yourself, and the things you find difficult in your life. It is an opportunity for you to talk openly and freely without being judged.

By training I am an integrative psychotherapist. My approach is flexible and adaptable, and recognises that people are complex and their lives complicated.

Couples counselling

Couples counselling allows for exploration of relationship difficulties and space to make decisions about how to move forward into the future. It is an opportunity to explore different ways of communicating with and being with each other.

In the event that you have agreed to separate, couples counselling can aid acceptance of and adjustment to the ending of the relationship.

Couples or relationship counselling is also suitable for other relationships (parent-child; siblings, for example) – indeed, wherever two individuals seek better understanding and resolution of painful issues.


I have experience of working successfully with referrals from EAP/Organisations. Enquiries welcome. Current DBS Certificate.


It is in the nature of the counselling process that clients often disclose deeply personal details of their lives. To safeguard client confidentiality I do not add your name or other identifying details to my notes. In addition, I do not store sensitive client information on my computer.

Training, qualifications & experience

Always curious about how we think, feel and behave, I earned a 1st Class psychology degree at the University of London in 1996. I went on to research children’s early language and cognitive development for which I was awarded a doctoral degree in 2002.

Other qualifications include:

Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.

Advanced Post Diploma Certificate in Couples Counselling. My approach to relationship counselling differs from more traditional approaches. If you have previously had couples counselling with Relate, for example, you will find the way I work to be quite different.

Diploma in Anatomy and Physiology reflecting an interest in the link between mind and body.

Certificate in Mindfulness Practice.

I have worked in a wide variety of environments, from secretarial roles in both the public and private sectors, to teaching psychology to post-graduate students. I have also run my own successful small business.

My 'university of life' experiences are an indispensable supplement to my professional counselling qualifications.

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and adhere to their Code of Ethics and Practice.
