About me

After my own very positive experience of being counselled I decided that I wanted to offer the same opportunity to others . I soon realised that the person-centred approach was the right fit for me.

As a person - centred therapist I believe that everyone has the capacity within themselves , given the right conditions, to survive and grow emotionally in whatever situations they are facing . I want to offer you a safe and confidential space in which you can feel heard and understood and re-connect with your inner resources. Together we can creatively explore solutions and ways of dealing with whatever you are facing.

I worked as a teacher for many years.

I am very experienced in working in different settings and with a wide range of issues. I am particularly interested in the subject of loss. Whether the loss of opportunity or bereavement I am struck by its impact on most areas of our lives. 

I offer online short, long term or time limited therapy.

Maybe an initial appointment with me will enable you to decide whether I am someone that you would like to work with.

I am offering 60 minute online or telephone appointments.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
