About me


I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I work with a variety of issues that affect people's lives including; relationships, marriage, divorce, family life, parenting issues, bereavement and loss, eating disorders, body image, identity, sexuality, self esteem and self confidence, trauma and PTSD, adolescence, work and career life, addiction issues and for many people, simply struggling to cope with life and the individual pressures it may pose.

I see adult clients of all ages, and young people from the age of 16 years old. I provide a safe, impartial and confidential space for my clients to speak openly and freely and be listened to. For some, it is simply having the opportunity to talk and be heard. So simple, but so valuable.

Together, we aim to make sense of difficulties and explore the roots of these issues so that a better understanding of yourself can allow for changes that can improve the quality of your life.

I offer both short-term counselling and longer, open-ended therapy, depending on a client's particular needs.


I have experience in working with couples struggling with a variety of issues affecting their relationship, including intimacy, infidelity, bereavement, infertility, trust, family difficulties, sexual issues or simply changes that have occurred over time that need addressing. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and impartial space to allow for each person to be listened to and understood. I encourage openness and honesty in order to explore and gain insight into each others' perspectives and feelings with the hope of resolving and healing the difficulties that can feel overwhelming at times.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with


Please do not remain alone during these uncertain times.

Whilst there may be physical isolation imposed, you should not be left without mental and emotional support. I, like other therapists, am able to offer sessions remotely via Skype or other video call methods. Please get in touch, do not be alone with difficult thoughts and feelings.


Additional information

Please contact me to discuss fees for initial consultations and regular weekly sessions for both individual and couple therapy 

When I work

Monday-Friday 8am - 6pm

Further information

How do I get started?

Simply email, text or call me to arrange an initial consultation where we get a chance to meet each other and talk about your particular needs and a general background and history. This lasts up to 90 minutes.

I feel it is useful to have a further 2 sessions before we decide if a fixed, weekly session would be helpful. These sessions last 50 minutes.

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.

I am able to offer sessions remotely for anyone unable to attend a session in person.
