As an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor I believe that we all have the capacity to enjoy good mental health and well being. To achieve this we may need to talk to someone who is trained to help us make sense of things. If you are thinking about seeing a counsellor or psychotherapist it is important to find the right person to help you. For this reason I provide an assessment session on the telephone for which there is no charge.
In our frantic modern lives, where everyone seems to have an opinion, we rarely feel properly listened to or really heard by anyone else. Being able to talk to another person in confidence, in a safe place, who will not make any judgements about you or your situation can be really helpful and bring you great relief.
I work hard to help people find ways to alleviate their distress as quickly as possible so that they can get on with living their lives in a more satisfying way. I am trained in ‘Brief and Time Focussed’ Counselling and commit to longer term therapy when necessary. I am a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, and work carefully to tailor the therapy for each person, finding the most helpful ways of working for each individual or couple.
You can contact me by text or email to make an appointment or call and leave a message to say when would be a good time for me to call you back.

My fee for individual sessions is £50. Couples £65. Sessions are for 60 minutes.

I take regular supervision with a highly experienced Psychotherapist and TSTA (Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst) as is required by the BACP and other regulating bodies. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.
Life can be confusing and frustrating, it can feel pointless or very scary. Our problems can just keep getting us down, making us feel depressed and miserable, angry and unable to cope. We may be troubled by past experiences or unhelpful behaviours. We may experience acute anxiety, panic, trauma, loss, abandonment, violence or feel trapped in a situation not of our own making. Sometimes we can be angry with ourselves or somebody else. We can often feel ashamed, humiliated or even that our problems are too trivial to talk about. However big or small your problem seems, it helps to talk with someone who is trained to listen, to help you make sense of it and to help you make the changes you need to make.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
