As a psychotherapeutic counsellor, I support clients with their experience of: anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, social anxiety, feeling sad and low mood, self-esteem and relationship difficulties.
I have a special interest and specialism in working with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
I had a first career as a senior executive in financial services, and have a specialism in supporting clients with work related difficulties: stress, imposter syndrome, perfectionism and issues of identity - processing loss and finding meaning following career transitions including redundancy or retirement.
(Covid 19 - I'm offering Zoom/Skype sessions).

I have a Masters in Executive Coaching from Ashridge Business School.
I have been providing 1:1 support to clients since 2012.
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.
