About me

If you're looking for an approachable and experienced private psychotherapist, please get in touch to find out more about how we can work together on the issues you're experiencing.  I have extensive training and experience in both mental health, charitable and private settings. You will be in the hands of a professionally trained, respectful and ethical practitioner.

I’m registered with the BACP as an existential counsellor and psychotherapist so my approach to therapy and life is ‘existential’. This means that I believe all aspects of our lives are interconnected and beneath the everyday struggles and anxieties we face, lie our broader concerns about life and how we create meaning and a sense of purpose for ourselves.   The content of sessions is focused on your experience and values so that we can explore your relationship with yourself, others and the world around you.

Every person with whom I work is respected as a unique individual and I welcome all kinds of people into my practice. Therapy is a chance to be seen and understood for who you really are, whatever your age, lifestyle, culture, sexuality or gender.  I also work with autistic adults and individuals with mild to moderate learning difficulties.

Before your first online session we'll arrange a 20 minute phone consultation (free of charge) to briefly discuss some practicalities and whether working online with me will be a good fit for you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.

Online sessions are held over Zoom or through a secure online videocall platform. I email a link to you for the sessions. You will need a quiet and confidential space and a reliable internet connection.
