Welcome to my site. I am a fully trained Psychotherapist who specialises in Anxiety, Depression and Relational issues.
When people visit a therapist, it is usually because they are going through a very difficult time in their lives and are feeling a real need to get the right kind of help and support.
* You may feel anxious or depressed or struggling to make sense of things
* you may be failing at work, feeling isolated and fearful
* A relationship may have broken down leaving you feeling out of control.
You may have concerns about the process:
My approach is to provide a therapeutic experience that is specific to you, which means I may incorporate one or more modes of therapy depending on your needs.
I provide a safe and supportive environment to help you make sense of what is happening in your life as well as guide you towards making more informed and life changing choices.
As your therapist I work in a confidential, non-judgmental and empathetic way, which I believe is one of the most important criteria for undergoing therapy.
At the end of your therapy you can expect:
- more informed choices, feeling more in control
- A reduction in the intensity of feelings and initial difficulties
- An ability to utilise effective coping mechanisms.
- A beneficial impact on your domestic, social and working life.
What to do next?
Arrange aninitial telephone conversation at a convenient time for you.
During this consultation you will have an opportunity to discuss your needs and the best way forward for you. Any questions or concerns you may have about therapy will be discussed prior to an initial meeting.
The initial meeting will usually last between one and one half hours.
During the Initial meeting, we will explore your current difficulties in further detail and any other problems that may have brought you to therapy. We will decide on a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
I also offer secure and confidential skype sessions for those who are unable to attend sessions due to work arrangements and travel restrictions.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
