Are you suffering with anxiety, depression or feeling sad, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, low self-esteem, relationship issues, family issues?
I have more than twenty-five years' experience working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, helping people like you to overcome their problems and to feel happier, lighter and more in control.
I have recently retired from my role as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the NHS, and I offer sessions privately on weekdays, - Tuesdays to Fridays.
My aims are:
- to offer you professional and effective therapy for the problem(s) that you are experiencing
- to help you to resolve your problem(s) as swiftly as possible
- to give you tools that you can use to deal with issues that may arise in the future
- to give you a positive and affirming experience of therapy
I was originally trained in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling, which means that I have a wide range of theoretical models to draw upon; this allows me to be responsive and flexible to your specific needs. My CBT training means that I can help you to resolve a wide range of problems, including depression, and anxiety disorders such as OCD, Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, Panic, Specific Phobias and General Anxiety (excessive worrying).

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.
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
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
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).
