I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor with several years experience providing a safe and empowering environment for clients to be heard and understood.
I have a special interest in supporting clients to discover the purpose and meaning of their life and to see how the difficulties they are facing are opportunities for growth.
Clients come to me experiencing ...
- Low self esteem
- Loss of direction
- Panic attacks
- Relationship problems
As an integrative transpersonal therapist I am able to draw on a range of therapeutic skills and to work creatively to enable clients to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and an awareness of their potential.
How often should I come?
Generally people find that the most effective therapy is achieved through attending weekly sessions.
How long will it take?
It depends very much on what you want to achieve. Short term work (counselling), usually 6-12 sessions, is helpful in focusing on specific issues. Longer term work (psychotherapy) enables us to work with more deep seated issues, patterns and concerns.
What is the next step?
Contact me by phone or email to book your initial session. During this time you will have the chance to share, in confidence, a little bit about yourself, your concerns and what you want from therapy. Should you decide that therapy with me is right for you then we can then arrange a convenient time to meet each week.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

The above hours are an indication of my availability but please don't let that prevent you from contacting me.
I am also a trained EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) therapist. EFT (sometimes known as ‘tapping’) is a relatively new discovery based on ancient healing principals over 5,000 years ago. It is a highly effective technique that works with the body’s energy system and uses gentle tapping to release blocks caused by stress, and anxiety and trauma.
