About me

Do you feel like you're going round and round with a particular problem(s), which might be affecting your mood and how you see yourself, your relationship(s) or your future?

Do any of these examples resonate with how you've been feeling?

  • Wanting to communicate better with your partner or relative, or to improve your life; but scared of change, or don’t know where to start
  • Feeling stressed, unloved, lonely, or unsupported – as if nobody cares, or as if everyone’s against you.
  • Feeling as if events or relationships from your past are holding you back.
  • Continuously thinking about a relationship and trying to make it better.
  • Feeling sad, depressed, lacking energy or motivation, or disinterested in life.
  • Seeking solace from alcohol, gambling or excessive exercise; hiding an eating disorder or self-harming behaviour; or worried that you’re on a path of self-destruction.
  • Trying to suppress feelings such as anger, for fear of where they might lead; or avoiding conflict, causing a build-up of resentment.
  • Compelled to seek attention, love, reassurance, or answers from others, and feeling rejected when they don’t respond in the way you need them to.
  • Feeling ‘invaded’ by others’ demands on your time, attention, and space; wanting to run away; or trying to please or care for others at the expense of your own needs.
  • Impacted by the aftermath of an affair, betrayal, separation, divorce, bereavement, ongoing misunderstandings, bickering, arguments, criticism, or feelings of abandonment.
  • Spending so much time in close proximity to your partner or family as a result of the pandemic has created, exposed or magnified a problem between you.
  • Suffering from a negative self-image, or worried that anxiety or panic attacks are holding you back from doing what you really want to do.
  • Frightened about the future because a loved one has told you to ‘sort yourself out’

These are just some of the issues you might be experiencing. Whether your issues are similar or different, I hope you will feel confident enough to contact me to discuss your situation.

I'll work with you to help you to better understand your feelings, explore solutions, and work towards greater stability and peace within yourself. Whatever the problem is that you're experiencing, you'll be able to talk confidentially about your issues, self-perceptions, and hopes for the future. My approach draws on 3 decades of experience in understanding feelings, motivations, needs and behaviour.

Sometimes we just need a little help. Whether you're single, married, living together, divorced, separated, bereaved, or struggling to find or keep a partner, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

I offer a short, free initial phone consultation.

I am offering sessions with individuals via video call and telephone.

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.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.
