About me

Hello, you may be finding life a struggle and hard going at the moment and you might be thinking about therapy or counselling as a way to explore yourself and the possibility of making changes in your life.

You may be experiencing a crisis, relationship difficulties, troubling feelings and thoughts, anxiety, work related stress and problems, depression or historical experiences including abuse.

When we talk at depth with a trusted other about what really matters to us we find ourselves growing in awareness and insight. It is through such awareness that you are able to make choices about things you may wish to change or understand more fully and also to come to terms with the things you can't.

Exploring difficulties with a therapist and gaining clarity around feelings and thoughts deepens self understanding.

I am an experienced therapist and offer a safe and supportive space for you. I believe effective therapy is grounded in warmth, compassion, creativity and understanding.

My professional background spans over 20 years and I have many years experience of working therapeutically with people from all walks of life.

Member organisations


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.


UK Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA)

UKATA (formally the Institute of Transactional Analysis) is the national UK Transactional Analysis organisation representing all fields of TA theory and practice. TA can be used as an effective tool in a wide range of contexts such as: personal development, management, coaching, counselling, psychotherapy, teaching, education, parenting and more.
