About me

Executive Psychotherapist & Counsellor

Over the past 20 years, I have coached many executives whose pressures and stresses affect their quality of life.  Successful individuals are not exempt from past issues that affect them.  With seniority and success comes a degree of isolation, making it far harder to admit to vulnerability and ask for help. I understand this and am sensitive to it.

As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, I can offer a different level of support where we can explore the causes rather than the symptoms.I have a background working with trauma, depression, confidence issues and anxiety.

​Why do I call this Executive Counselling?

In traditional counselling/therapy, you are offered a set weekly day and time for sessions. I offer a much more flexible service, understanding that diaries can change, business trips come up suddenly etc. You can choose when we get together, subject to both of our availabilities. Secondly, my many years of coaching senior executives gives me a specialist understanding of the pressures and responsibilities of the executive world. Please do get in touch for a free, no-commitment chat to discuss your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor trained at the Metanoia Institute and the Berne Institute with many years in private practice.​​​ I  have a growing practice of executives whom I work within a more therapeutic way addressing a range of issues such as anxiety, stress and depression. 

I am a member of the Association for Coaching

I am an individual member of the BACP  01005391

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.
