About me

Hi, I am Clinical Lead and Directors 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 would like to see more information about my team or are unsure which therapist is right for you, I'd be happy to help you choose from our list of qualified practitioners which is displayed on our website: 

About Me
I am an experienced and compassionate Therapist & DBT Practitioner and specialise in working with Personality Disorder, ADHD, Autism and Complex Trauma. There are a great many cross overs in the presentation of these complex presentations and therefore I focus on offering therapy that targets the symptoms of emotional hypersensitivity and neurodiversity moreover the diagnosis per se. 

I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am a member of the Society for DBT (SfDBT). 

How I work
I offer DBT informed psychotherapy on an individual basis as well as a fully adherent DBT service that includes a group component.

Individual psychotherapy involves traditional talking therapy, exploring why an individual may think, feel and behave the way they do in order to promote insight and change. I integrate a lot of practical skills to support resilience in the immediate term. 

Fully adherent DBT is suited to individuals who present with significant risk factors such as suicidality, self harm, and addictions, and dysfunctional relationships. This is an intensive and specialist service. 

I also offer services for family and friends of those who struggle with severe and enduring mental health problems by means of coaching. 

Clinical Supervision
I am a qualified Clinical supervisor, so if you are a trainee or experienced therapist looking for a supervisor please see my supervision profile for more information. I also offer supervision for health and social care organisations.

Training, qualifications & experience

My formal Qualifications include:

  • Master of Science (Msc) in Integrative Psychotherapy
  • Post Grad Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy
  • BA (Hons) Creative Expressive Therapies
  • Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Diploma in Clinical Supervision (Dip Sup)
  • Level 4 Accredited DBT Practitioner

    I have a high level of training and am passionate about my commitment to the profession of Psychotherapy. I undertake regular supervision as well as supervise the work of others. 

    My Experience
    I've worked therapeutically in many settings, including:
    NHS Forensic Mental Health services
    International aid projects (AusAid, Veterans International, UNICEF)

    As such, I have a wealth of experience working with clients who present with various issues.

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.
