About me

I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist with over 20 years counselling experience. I am a Registered Member of BACP and an Advanced Accredited Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversities therapist with Pink Therapy.   My background includes counselling in GP surgeries, NHS, probation and prisons and a young persons charity.

Over the years I have worked with clients who have been experiencing a wide variety of personal issues including feeling sad or down, stress, worry, anxiety and/or panic attacks, social anxiety, anger, depression and or low mood, bereavement and loss, relationships, separation or divorce, sexuality, self harm, domestic abuse, suicidal feelings, childhood and family issues, abuse, exams, mental health problems, workplace problems, difficulties with studies or university, redundancy and low confidence or self esteem. 

I have experience and a particular interest in neurodivergence, working with autistic clients and clients with ADHD - either diagnosed or not - and supporting clients on this path. I have a number of auto immune and health conditions that I manage and I am passionate and political about challenging able-ism and able-ist structures and supporting clients to take care of themselves within these potentially harmful systems.

I am interested in gender and sexuality and as a queer therapist myself I work firmly within a gay/trans affirmative approach.  I have worked with many clients who are exploring their gender or who identify as non-binary, gender fluid, gender queer and/or clients who are exploring their sexuality or who identify as LGBTQIA*.   I am committed to exploring and challenging the shame that can develop as a result of bullying and minority oppression.   I have worked with parents and partners whose family members are exploring their gender and/or sexuality.  I am also experienced in working with relationship anarchy and clients who are in polyamorous/consensual non-monogamous relationships.

I am experienced in working with work related stress and how this can impact on our lives, our relationships and how we feel about our jobs and career choices. 

It may be that you want to make some changes in your life, or are feeling under pressure and need some support in order to help you see things more clearly and identify ways forward. The COVID pandemic has impact on us all in a variety of ways, bringing huge changes and losses.  I offer a safe, supportive, confidential environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings without feeling judged.

The basis of my work is Person-Centred which means I offer empathy, honesty, and unconditional positive regard. This approach can be beneficial in exploring and understanding your feelings and relationships with others. I am able to work long term to help you work through and resolve feelings that may stem from the past and that may be causing difficulties for you. I am also trained to use Solution Focused and CBT therapies which are more short term and can be helpful if you require a more short term “here and now” approach.

I am qualified and experienced in working online as well as over the phone.  I offer sessions in person or by phone, video, email or instant messenger.

Counselling can be challenging but also rewarding and empowering, and it is important that you find a counsellor that you feel comfortable working with. Bearing this in mind, feel to contact me by telephone or email without obligation if you have any questions about the therapy.  I am approachable, warm and genuine, and I offer a down to earth approach.

Member organisations

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.

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.

For in person sessions, the therapy is on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible and has adjustable lighting. The room is well ventilated and has two windows for additional ventilation.
