About me

Are you looking for an active, creative, collaborative therapist who will help you make positive change?

I am a trained counsellor/family therapist, an Accredited Registered Member with the BACP, with 12 years' experience working with all ages. I offer confidential counselling to adult individuals, couples and families.

I am a systemic therapist, meaning that I strive to understand each client in the various contexts in which they live and form relationships.   My approach is integrative, in that I draw on elements of Experiential, Narrative and Solution-Focused therapies, as well as concepts from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use creativity in my work, if clients are interested in this, but I adapt my approach according to what suits each individual. The connection between therapist and client has been shown to be more important than the models used, but I can provide you with information about the way I work if you're interested.

I love my work and feel privileged to support clients in making positive changes. Clients have described me as warm, friendly and approachable. As part of my professional and ethical responsibility, I am committed to ongoing training, regular supervision (a requirement for BACP members), and practising good self-care.

Please call or email so we can set up a time to chat for 15-20 minutes (no fee) by phone. This is an opportunity for us to discuss if I might be the right person for you. From there we can set up a mutually convenient time to schedule a more in depth assessment in person and in the first session I will go over the details of how I work and what you can expect.

Training, qualifications & experience


  • Masters degree in Couples & Family Therapy
  • Graduate Certificate in Couples Counselling
  • Certificate in Person-Centred Art Therapy Skills
  • Certified Grief Recovery Specialist
  • Registered Circle of Security Parenting Educator

My initial training was in couples counselling with Relate. I then completed a Masters degree in Couples and Family Therapy in the USA, and worked for many years in community mental health. I have also worked with students in schools and higher education settings and couples/families in private practice.

I have additional training in art therapy skills, grief recovery and Circle of Security Parenting. Please ask if you have questions about any of my training and experience. What is most important to me is that you get what you need from your counselling.
