About me

I am a fully qualified and full-time experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor who works with her deep professional and personal experiences to help you get to the root of your problems.  I work with adults, couples, children & adolescents, and families.  I also offer clinical supervision.

I can give you professional support and assist you in gaining insight and understanding about yourself, your relationships, and your life events. I will provide you with the opportunity for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment.  My aim will be to build a trusting and honest relationship so we can work through the complex demands of life that you face, exploring and constructively working with issues, problems and underlying patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviour in a fluid, empathic and non-judgemental way.

Prior to my professional training as a Counsellor, I had a wealth of experience working within the Human Resources and Employment Law business arena and I draw upon this in my work with workplace counselling. My core training is Integrative which is informed by Psychodynamic, Integrative/Humanistic,  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and EMDR. I can help you decide the most appropriate approach for your therapeutic work or this can be left to me to decide based on what you hope to achieve.

I have a wealth of experience providing therapy and has helped both adults, couples, children and adolescent and families address a wide range of issues including: abuse, anger, anxiety, depression, family issues, relationship problems, behaviour problems, bereavement, child related issues, low self-confidence and low self-esteem, Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, self-harm, separation and divorce, separation anxiety, stress, suicidal thoughts, and work related stress.

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with


Additional information

The first session will be an assessment session, where we will decide if you feel we can work together. Should this be agreed, we will commence therapy with an open-time contract which means that wherever possible we will both commit to on-going therapy until you feel the work is complete.

The initial assessment will include a full history take and the treatment plan, duration and frequency of ongoing sessions will also be discussed and agreed.

As a guide, the my fees are:-

Initial assessment – £60 to £80 (60/90 minutes session time depending upon presenting issues). This will be discussed and agreed at the time of enquiry.

Further Appointments – £60 per session (up to 60 minutes).

Extended Appointments – £80 per session (90 minutes). Extended sessions are advisable for clients who wish to work with hypnotherapy.

EMDR – £100 for the initial 90 minute assessment and £100 for ongoing therapy sessions (90 minutes)
