About me

I am a British Psychological Society (BPS) Chartered, and Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) Registered, Counselling Psychologist, with 20 years practitioner experience in private practice and the NHS.


Using National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE)-approved psychological therapies, I provide COUNSELLING to adults, the main aim of which is to help build Resilience and Emotional Wellbeing, to enable them to respond positively to many health, social, and age-related challenges, including:

  • Mobility Difficulties
  • Depression/Anxieties
  • Trauma/Abuse
  • Loss/Bereavement
  • Relationship issues
  • Long-term chronic illnesses
  • Visual Impairments
  • Learning disabilities/difficulties
  • Work changes/Retirement
  • Anger management

I also offer specialist counselling services to adults with learning disabilities, their relatives/carers; older adults with complex health and social care needs and their relatives/carers; people experiencing sight deterioration/impairment; and people bereaved by suicide.

I provide clinical SUPERVISION to trainee and qualified psychologists and counsellors; specialist consultation to care providers; and research supervision for both academic and clinical research projects.

I also provide specialist professional TRAINING to trainee counsellors and psychologists, and continuing professional development training for qualified psychologists and counsellors, other healthcare professionals, social workers, and care providers.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology from Essex University/Tavistock Clinic, London; an MSc and Post-Msc in Counselling Psychology from City University, London; and a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from (now) Anglia Ruskin University. I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS), a member of the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors, and a member of the BPS 'Register of Qualifications in Test Use'. I also have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Course Design in Higher Education, from the Open University.
