About me

I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a Registered Member MBACP (Senior Accredited). I have over 18 years experience of working as a therapist. I run my practice from a quiet, attractive dedicated counselling room attached to my house. There is parking available directly outside the room.

To take the step of ringing for an appointment for an initial session of therapy can feel difficult so I hope the information I provide will help you with this decision. I would also be happy to talk to you about the service I offer.

I believe Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you to make changes that can improve your life and help you to fulfil your potential.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a qualified therapist for over 18 years - working in the NHS and in private practice. I set up and ran a counselling service for 17 years for Colchester Hospital University Foundation Trust, working with people who were living with a cancer diagnosis. I have extensive experience in working with women who have breast cancer.

Through my NHS practice and private practice I have gained a wide experience in working with a diverse range of clients with many different issues and problems.

I left the NHS in June 2015 to pursue my private practice.
