About me

We are currently taking on Children, adults and couples. 

I am a senior qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor working with adults, young people and couples

Psychotherapy explores emotions, beliefs, thoughts and behaviours. Together through the therapeutic relationship we can gain a new perspective to make life more manageable, understand its purpose, meaning and promote change.

My work is integrative; meaning I weave a variety of therapies to suit each client, each relationship will be unique depending upon your needs.
I am pragmatic and realistic to life's every day demands, I combine my knowledge of psychoanalytical theory and human psychology to find the most suitable method to help you.

I firmly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore their emotions. No concern or thought is too big or too small. Perhaps you are in a crisis, a bereavement, life feels complicated, or you just want to learn more about yourself. Every one of us experiences hundreds of emotions daily, the more we learn about them the more accepting we can become of ourselves and others.

Our initial meeting would be an assessment to ensure my experience matches your needs, at this point we can discuss any questions you may have.

Should you choose to start therapy we would meet once a week for a 50 minute session, this takes place in a private, quaint and comfortable, safe space.

Some clients choose short term therapy sessions and others longer term. We can discuss what would be more helpful for you during the assessment.

If you are unable to make a session face to face, Skype is a convenient effective alternative, I work with many clients internationally and throughout the UK.

An area of personal interest and expertise is working with anxiety related issues, young professionals, and expectant parents.

I also work with media personalities and professional league footballers.

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.

Accredited register membership

Areas of counselling I deal with

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work with anxiety related issues particularly with clients in their 20's and 30's and also reaching an age with life changing decisions, such as marriage and having children. If you would like support in understanding your anxiety and making healthy changes today get in touch to learn more about how this works.

I also work with pregnancy related issues. Whether it is a healthy pregnancy or one in crisis, each pregnancy comes with it's own set of emotions, losses and gains, some greater than others. I have specialised in this area, training and working in the UK and the U.S
