About me

Hi, I have been working as a private practitioner for over 15 years with adults on an individual basis who are experiencing difficulties. I work solely online and provide therapy sessions for clients via Zoom.

I have a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Integrative Psychotherapy and a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Having worked as a Director and Board member of a multi-national organisation I retrained as a psychologist working as a Director and Trustee at a voluntary counselling organisation in Birmingham and at several NHS hospitals in the West Midlands.

I have a very positive optimistic approach to working with clients believing that in the right environment anything is possible. I really enjoy my work and believe that helping people make desired changes in their lives can be an empowering experience for them.

How could I help you?
I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy as each person is unique, therefore I work integratively which means I use different approaches within the counselling relationship dependent on your needs. I have trained in a variety of approaches including existential psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and transactional analysis.

Therapy can be short or long term dependent on your personal circumstances, and we would discuss this at our first meeting

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.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I specialise in working with people aged 35-65 who feel they are at a crossroads in their life and need change to bring happiness and fulfilment. I work with clients who are undergoing life transitions, midlife crisis, empty nesters, divorce and separation and new relationships in midlife.

You can find me on Tiktok as The Midlife Crisis Doctor.
