About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who works with individuals and couples.

Sometimes change is driven by others, sometimes we are desperate for things to shift, but don't know the best way to go about it. Relate trained, I can help you to figure out whether you should mend bridges, re-organise your life or move on. I offer a safe, confidential space to explore what is troubling, and to think about new ways of dealing with it. I'm qualified to master's level, am a Clinical Supervisor, and an ex-lecturer in Higher Education.

I work with a relational focus and find that conditions like anxiety or depression occur when relationships (business or personal) are troubled. Whether its lack of, ending of, difficulties with or changes in relationships, our need for human closeness both brings pleasure and causes problems. I am experienced in understanding coercive control and trauma.

I work both online and in person, which means that you can access support in the way that suits you. I work in a calm, relaxed setting; your visit is confidential, tranquil and safe. You may feel a few sessions will help, or you might be looking for something longer term. We can talk about that, and arrange what is best for you.

I specialise in the following areas:

Relationship difficulties, affairs, relational trauma, coercive control, bereavement, change, causes of anxiety and depression, post substance misuse emotional difficulties, estrangement and loss, step-families, bullying, work place difficulties, indecision, loneliness, indecision, Asperger's, and many others.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership
