Rutland House Counselling & Psychotherapy UKCP reg

About me

Hi, I am Practice Director, Psychotherapist & Clinical Supervisor at Rutland House Counselling and Psychotherapy Ltd (RHCP), a private therapy service based in the heart of Leicester city (Bowling Green Street). I offer private therapy myself, however RHCP hosts a team of Psychotherapists and Counsellors offering tailor-made therapy for Adults, Children, Families, Couples and Businesses in a comfortable and attractive practice and location . Being in the city centre the practice is easily accessible via all forms of transport and there is plenty of local parking. To see the practice website please visit our website.


Our fees range per session depending on the service you require and which therapist you see.

I have provided some details about how I work, however if you are unsure which therapist is right for you, I'd be happy to help you choose from our list of qualified practitioners.

About Me
I am an experienced and compassionate Psychotherapist/Counsellor offering a confidential service. I am trained to offer short or long term psychological therapies, and will work closely with you to decide what you may need depending on your reasons for coming and your individual experiences.

I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). The UKCP only register psychotherapists with a minimum of four years Masters Degree level training.

How I work
I offer a space to be heard by someone other than a partner, family member, or friend; allowing thought and reflection to arise from a non-judgemental and supportive relationship. I draw upon my understanding of problems and issues to support my practice and to help you move forward. I am highly informed Dialectical Behavioural Therapy in addition to more traditional longer-term talking therapies.

I always work in the strictest confidence, in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and the UKCP Code of Ethics and do so with respect, compassion and empathy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

DUE TO COVID19 my team and I are offering telephone and online therapy options.


In person

I specialise in group and organisational supervision in health and social care settings. Reflective practice, Therapeutic and DBT experience.
