I am a professionally qualified and very experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. My experience gained over 30 years has included working in the private, public and charity sectors and has brought me into contact with a wide range of clients that have included, at one end of the scale, well-functioning individuals who have become overwhelmed by life events and at the other, individuals with severe and enduring difficulties who struggle to manage the inevitable challenges that life brings.
Whatever has brought you to think about therapy, you are welcome to contact me by telephone or e mail. I will try to arrange a telephone conversation with you within a few days, during which we will discuss what has prompted your enquiry and, if appropriate, to arrange an initial session when we will discuss in more detail the nature of your difficulties and the best way forward for you. This may be a small number of sessions to address a particular problem and help you to get back on track or, it may be longer-term therapy that will address the underlying issues that are preventing you from living your life to the full. If for any reason you do not feel I am the right person to help you, I will always do my best to suggest someone else.
I am currently offering both in-person and online sessions.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
