About me

My aim is to provide for you, a warm, safe and supportive space, in which I offer you an opportunity to talk about and explore yourself and your life in a way that you may never have been able to before. This supported exploration may help you to gain insights into your feelings and behaviour and empower you to live the life that you want to.

I am a qualified and experienced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I have worked in the NHS, as the Clinical Lead of a specialist agency, and in Private Practice. As such I am skilled in working with a wide array of problems and challenges that may be faced during the course of life. I hold specialist qualifications in working with eating disorders, body image disturbance and the mind/body connection.

My approach to the therapeutic process stems from my personal qualities of compassion, attentiveness, patience and positivity. I integrate a variety of counselling, psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic models, alongside behavioural and positive psychology, ancient wisdom, mindfulness and creativity. My work is underpinned by the belief that given the right conditions people can heal and grow to fulfill their true potential. For specialist eating disorder information, please see my other website www.eatingdisorderspecialists.co.uk

I provide confidential one to one counselling, face to face, via Skype and by telephone. I can offer one off sessions, short term or long term work.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their guidelines for ethical practice.

I have undertaken a further Masters degree in working with Eating Disorders and Body Image Disturbance at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and I am an Associate Member of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists. For specialist Eating Disorder therapy please see my dedicated website www.eatingdisorderspecialists.co.uk

Member organisations


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.
