About me

I am currently working with a waiting list.  This may be up to a wait of at least 6 months. 


I am a trained psychotherapeutic counsellor, and supervisor, offering short term and long term counselling.

Feeling alone, unheard or misunderstood can leave feelings of isolation and uncertainty. I provide a space in which issues can be explored together to move towards a greater acceptance of yourself, gain new perspectives and change unhelpful patterns.

I have appointments for individuals and couples and have experience working in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse (substance abuse, domestic abuse, child sex abuse).

My approach is integrative, which means that I individualise my work with you using several theoretical models to fit your needs. I provide a safe space where we can explore, together, your needs. I work confidentially adhering to UKCP code of ethics. I also work with EAP (Employment Assistance Programmes).

Possible Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Therapy

A1 Some clients are used to communicating on screens for work meetings and family chats, and they have adapted to the differences. Some may prefer it as they can get ‘closer’.

D1 Some people may have different experiences due to the lack of visual and auditory cues and may feel that we are ‘further apart’.

A2 Any physical difficulties related to travel to and from a physical therapy room are removed. And sessions are easier to schedule into a busy person's diary due to no transportation time required when having sessions on their screen.

D2 Some people may have unexpected emotional responses during or after sessions. This can be due to psychological processes being impacted by communicating via technology, which can make us say things differently in sessions.

A3  There can be an experience of consistency in the regularly occurring therapeutic space, even if the physical space is not consistent (e.g. if people are in varying locations).

D3  There are limits to the amount of confidentiality that a therapist can guarantee to a client when using technology due to communication passing through platforms that the therapist does not own.

A4  Communicating from their own safe protected space might feel preferable to some clients

D4  It may be difficult to organise a safe, private, and quiet place

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.
