About me

Feeling anxious? Overwhelmed? Not sure what to do next? Let me help you find your way through the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of life.

I am a counsellor who works with your conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings, helping you to discover why you feel the way you do and working with you to help you discover a more happy and positive way to live.  

I practice integrative counselling, combining the best of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centred, Psychoanalytic, and other therapies tailored specifically to your particular needs, delivered in a totally non-judgemental way.

I work online and by telephone counselling, adopting the most suitable approach for your circumstances. For a no-obligation discussion please call 07762 943773 or email me using the contact form above. If I am with a client please leave a message and will get back to you as soon as possible.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
