About me

I offer professional, confidential online psychotherapy and counselling for men and women in the UK, Europe and around the world using Skype, FaceTime and other video apps. My aim is to help you effectively resolve your emotional and psychological problems in a supportive therapeutic environment. These are some of the areas that I work in as a psychotherapist and counsellor:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Anger and jealousy
  • Compulsive behaviour
  • Workplace stress
  • Career change
  • Loss of meaning
  • Low self-esteem
  • Childhood issues
  • Bereavement support
  • Relocation counselling
  • Expat counselling
  • LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans)
  • Sex and sexuality
  • Creativity, creative block
  • Personal growth


People are drawn to therapy for many reasons.
Sometimes they simply feel “stuck” or have lost purpose or meaning in their lives. At other times the decision to ask a psychotherapist or counsellor for help comes after months or years of struggling on their own with depression or anxiety or with compulsive and addictive behaviour. There are also those whose lives have been turned upside down by a traumatic event such as the breakdown of a relationship, a major bereavement or the loss of their job. Others simply want to gain greater insight into their own psychology – you don't have to be unhappy to see a therapist.

Whatever brings you to therapy, my approach as a psychotherapist and counsellor is at all times respectful, non-judgmental and affirmative, regardless of your age, gender, race, disability, sexuality, belief system or lifestyle.

To find out more about me and my therapy practice, please take time to explore my website. Here you will find information about how I work and what theories I draw on. I am happy to answer any questions in advance of our first session.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
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.
