I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy sessions, to help people discover and change what is getting in the way of a more fulfilling life. Due to COVID-19 social distancing measures I am currently offering online and phone sessions only.
My approach is to work in a collaborative way with you, to identify your goals for therapy & how we will know we have achieved them. Sessions can be time limited or longer term according to what you need. People seek out therapy for many reasons, and as an integrative therapist I draw on a variety of methods to help you feel seen and heard, and empowered to make the changes you want to.
I work with clients on issues such as coping with change, relationship difficulties, abuse & trauma, loss & grief, anxiety & worry, anger, low mood & depression, stress & work-related issues, personal growth & self discovery.
I have experience working in a variety of professional settings to meet different needs for different people. My clinical experience includes: NHS, employee assistance programmes, probation service, mental health charities and private practice.
If you would like to book a session or simply find out more about what therapy can offer you, do get in touch.

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.
