About me

I offer online and/or telephone therapy to clients so no matter where you are in the country you can access my service.

Why do people come for therapy?

You may want online therapy for a variety of reasons. You may have suffered a bereavement, feel anxious and/or depressed, be having difficulties at work, relationship issues, or have experienced a traumatic event at some point in your life. You might not feel able to tell others how you are feeling, for fear of their reaction or that they perhaps won’t understand. The decision to access therapy may therefore feel daunting.

What I offer/how I work

I've worked with clients with a range of difficulties, and I specialise in working with adults with anxiety who want to live more fully in the present.

I provide a safe, confidential space in which to explore your difficulties. I believe that you, as the client, are the expert of your own experience. I will work with you to understand your issues from your perspective and without judgement. I may bring in different therapeutic approaches if I feel these could be an effective way of exploring your presenting issues. Whatever the approach, this will be explored with you to ensure that you're in agreement with how we work together.

What to expect

Prior to starting online psychological therapy, I offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs. The discussion focuses on exploring what you wish to work on, whether I'm able to work with what you'll be bringing to therapy, and whether we'll be a good "fit" for one another.

During our first few sessions, I will gather information about your past experiences, your present situation, and what you would like for your future. This assessment will help us to develop a deeper understanding of:

  • Your presenting problem(s)
  • The factors in your past which may be contributing to the present difficulties
  • Any incidents/events which might recently have triggered your current problems
  • The factors which might be stopping you resolving your current difficulties
  • The strengths you possess which help you cope with your current problems and which you may also be able to use to help you resolve them.

I will then make recommendations regarding the psychological approaches I believe may be most appropriate to address your presenting problems, based on the information that was gathered and discussed during the assessment.

Where I am based

I offer telephone or online (Zoom) therapy, so no matter where you are in the country you can access my services.

Member organisations


British Psychological Society (BPS)

British Psychological Society


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

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).
