About me

I have worked for many years in the NHS and for several mental health charities. I typically work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-criticism, shame, anger, addiction, dissociation, self-destructive tendencies, and much more. Such struggles often stem from multiple and complex life events and circumstances, including past/present abusive/neglectful relationships, abandonment, bereavement, bullying, trauma, racism, sexism, gender expectations, parenthood, study/work/financial pressures, and more existential challenges such as finding meaning and purpose in life.

I offer a warm, nurturing space in which, collaboratively, we can explore and make sense of difficulties you are facing. My doctoral level training in counselling psychology (2015-2020, award due 2020) means I am skilled in working integratively, that is using several therapeutic approaches including CBT, psychodynamic, and existential models, and able to tailor my work to meet your specific needs. Primarily, my style is relational, in line with extensive research showing that the most important factor in effective therapy is the relationship between therapist and client.

I am presently seeing clients in person as well as holding online sessions via Zoom and Skype. I also have a limited number of slots available for outdoor walking therapy in natural settings. Please contact me if you would like more information, preferably by email as I am often unavailable by phone. If you choose to phone and I am unavailable then please leave a voice message and I will get back to you usually within a few hours.

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.

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.
