About me

I support people to make changes in their lives and to be the best they can be. I am a Psychologist, Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by both these Professional Bodies’ Ethical Frameworks for Good Practice which ensures a high standard of care for clients.

I have much and varied experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist and I am happy to work with whatever issues clients bring. I have much experience working with anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, self harm, issues of abuse, (including spiritual abuse), relationship issues, loss and bereavement, work based stress, trauma and professional fatigue/burnout.

I also offer clinical and professional supervision and support for social and health-care workers or any professional worker who feels they may benefit from objective therapeutic support.

Please contact me via email or telephone. I will aim to make contact with you as soon as possible to discuss how we might move forward and work together.

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 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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

The counselling room is on ground floor and easily accessible. I also offer online and telephone counselling if preferred.
