About me

Hello, and welcome to my page. I have been qualified as a counsellor / psychotherapist and consultant for over 18 years, I work with adults, children, adolescents and have expertise in working with family issues. I can help with a wide range of matters including:

  • anxiety and depression
  • parenting issues (anxious children, school refusal, self-harm and general concerns with behaviours)
  • self esteem issues
  • family difficulties and relationship issues
  • Childhood abuse
  • Childhood neglect
  • Life threatening events
  • depression
  • eating disorders
  • self harm
  • trauma

I provide a welcoming, safe space that provides a relationship-based approach to working together.

I use what is called a 'pluralistic' way of working. This means I am trained to use what fits best with the client or I will use a few different ways of working during our time together which will be discussed. My ongoing development has included a significant amount of training in attachment theory and its impact across the lifespan, as well as currently completing a Doctorate in Psychology and psychotherapy at a London University. 

If you are a parent a child with a child with an additional need looking for Counselling.  You can access donation-based therapy and therapeutic groups here:

Member organisations

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.
