About me

Talking about your problems can be difficult, even with people who love and care about you. Sometimes you don't know where to turn. I am here to offer you support, and to respond to you sensitively, honestly and without judgement.

I'm totally committed to offering you a space where I listen carefully to the things that have brought you to counselling and do my best to really understand what's going on for you and what your feelings are. It's very important to me that I offer a warm, welcoming, friendly atmosphere to explore , in your own time, the problems that are troubling you.

I am an experienced and professional therapist, working for 21 years as a counsellor in the N.H.S , online and privately. My career in therapy stemmed from my work in nursing the terminally ill and working with bereaved families.
Since qualifying, I have worked extensively with emotional and relationship problems, including childhood abuse, self esteem and confidence issues.

I have also have 18 years experience, counselling young people between the ages of 11-25, in schools, privately and on line.

I use an Integrative approach in my therapy. This means that I have training in a range of different approaches which form my 'tool kit'. I will help you to find the right way forward for yourself. In particular, I use Transactional Analysis and integrate mindfulness and emotional regulation (D.B.T. skills) into my practice.

I am a registered M.B.A.C.P (accred)

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
