I am a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Counselling Psychologist. I provide individual therapy to adults face to face, via telephone and online. I also provide therapy to children, adolescents, couples and families, as well as clinical supervision to other mental health professionals.
My approach is all about providing a warm, accepting and empowering space to help you explore your difficulties, and together, to find a way forward.

I support people with difficulties including:
- Health Anxiety
- Isolation and loneliness
- Problematic anger and aggression
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Relationship problems and separations
- Problems at work
- Low self-esteem
- Overcoming Abuse
- Family and couple relationship difficulties

Registered / Accredited

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
