About me

Are you feeling stressed, unhappy, or does life just seem too challenging at the moment?

​Do you find it difficult to find or keep happy fulfilling relationships?

Are you struggling to understand or connect with your partner, parent or child?

​Would you like to be able to talk about your difficulties in a calm and confidential space?


​I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, and I run my private practice from a comfortable and safe room in my home in Crowthorne, Berkshire.  I have an MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy as well as a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from The Metanoia Institute in Ealing. I also hold a certificate in couples therapy.

​I offer a calm, safe and trusting environment where together we can explore your difficulties. I am warm and compassionate but I can also be appropriately challenging when needed.

I believe that therapy can give you the space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, which will help you understand yourself better.  It can help you to recover emotionally and psychologically from any past issues or traumas and can give you the clarity to make positive changes in your life.   Together we will work to help you find the way to a happier, peaceful, and more fulfilling present and future.

​​As a humanistic integrative therapist, I use different ways of working with you depending on your needs.  My focus is always on our therapeutic relationship, as I believe this is most important in order to achieve growth and change without embarrassment or shame.

​​From my previous role as a rape and sexual abuse counsellor, I have considerable experience in working with clients who may have experienced trauma either in childhood or as an adult.  I understand the coping mechanisms that many people adopt after traumatic events, that may have helped protect them at the time. 

These can include alcohol abuse, eating disorders, self-harm, poor sleeping patterns, intimacy issues, feelings of shame, flashbacks and dissociation.  ​Together we will work to explore how and why these coping mechanisms supported you at one time, and how you can now learn to replace them with healthier coping strategies.

​​I am passionate about my work, and as a registered member of the BACP and UKCP, you can feel safe in knowing that I offer a confidential and professional service.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

​Payment terms 

​I ask for payment for the first session to be paid by bank transfer at the time of booking and I will forward my bank details to you once we agree on a session time. After this initial session, I ask for sessions to be paid in advance by bank transfer or by cash at the beginning of each session.


I ask for a minimum of 48 hours' notice to cancel or change a session.  I will try to rearrange your session within the same working week (Mon-Fri), but if this is not possible then (depending on extenuating circumstances) I charge a cancellation fee of £35.

What to expect from therapy
*Please note that my therapy room may not be suitable for those with pet allergies*

​​I am happy to offer an initial free short telephone conversation if needed so that we can establish whether we will be able to work comfortably together.
In our first session, I will explain how I like to work and will invite you to tell me a little about what brings you to therapy. Please don't worry about having to talk about anything you are not comfortable with. You can begin wherever you like and feel confident that I will bear your safety in mind at all times to ensure you are not overwhelmed.

You are welcome to ask me any questions or share any worries you may have about my work and counselling in general.

​As I believe in the importance of a good therapeutic relationship, this initial session will allow us to see if we are both happy to work together.  After this first meeting, we will then book a regular time for our sessions where we will meet either face-to-face or online. 

I offer both short and long-term therapy and we will discuss which may suit you best.  I will regularly offer the opportunity for us review the counselling process, to check in and see how you feel counselling is working for you. This gives us both the opportunity to feedback on how we will the process is progressing and discuss any changes that may helpful.

I receive fortnightly ongoing professional, clinical supervision.  This is to assure you that I am an ethical practitioner and to assist me in providing you with the best practice and positive client outcome.

There is no obligation for you to continue to work with me after this initial session, or at any other point.  It is more important for you to find the right therapist for you, and if you don’t quite click with me, that’s fine too and I may be able to steer you towards a different way of moving forward.

​This first session will take place either face to face or online, and will be the same fee as other sessions. I hope by the end of the first session you will know whether you are comfortable to work with me, however I will always suggest you go home to think about it for a couple of days before making your final decision.

​​Free on street parking is available outside and there is also a toilet available next door to my counselling room.
