About me

I am a BACP-registered counsellor and coach based in central Cambridge, with extensive experience of working in private practice, higher education (HE) and family therapeutic settings. I am also a performance and development coach working largely in the HE sector.

I provide face-to-face, open-ended and brief therapy to all adult individuals and have extensive experience of working with women, young people and international clients.

I am happy to take referrals for individuals referred through organisations (usually their employers).

I also offer Skype counselling on request, though an initial, face-to-face meeting (where possible) is helpful.

I offer an open, accepting therapeutic space in which you will be listened to in complete confidentiality. By working collaboratively with me, you will be supported in exploring - and making sense of - any sources of confusion, distress or conflict in your life.

Therapy Sessions

You will be offered a regular appointment for a 50-minute session, known as a 'therapeutic hour'. Your therapy may be long- or short-term; I will help you decide what is best for you.

I offer evening and occasional daytime sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Counselling (2011) from the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge. My orientation is psychodynamic, though I am experienced in integrative practice.

I also hold a Diploma in Coaching (2017) from the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge. My training as a coach is psychologically informed.

I have worked for over twenty years in higher education and am a university lecturer, tutor, mentor, coach and trainer. I have counselled in private practice, at Cambridge Complementary for Therapies and Treatments, Mr Bee's Family Centre (West Norfolk), and at the University of Cambridge Counselling Service (student service).

I undertake regular CPD training. Areas include: working with LGBT clients (Pink Therapy); intercultural therapy (Nafsiyat); emotional eating; psychopathology; clinical assessment; body issues; and working with clients on the autistic spectrum (WPF Therapy).


I am a Registered Member of the BACP and adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy.

I am a Member of the BACP's Coaching Division.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

My premises are in an apartment block and accessible by lift. I regret that they are not wheelchair-accessible.
