About me

I work with individuals who are suffering from anxiety or depression, or are experiencing distress due to relationship or work problems or as a result of a trauma or loss.

With over twenty years experience of working with addiction, I support people to understand their relationship to their substance and/or addictive behaviour and to let go of what no longer serves them.

I also see couples who are experiencing problems related to conflict, infidelity, intimacy or communication problems, or who are just at a stage in their relationship where they would find it useful to have a safe space to explore some issues together.

I offer an empathetic and compassionate approach and work together with clients to support the development of self-awareness and insights into their difficulties.

Please contact me if you have any questions about how I work.

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.


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I can offer online counselling to clients who are unable to come to the therapy room.


During the Covid-19 pandemic, I will be working exclusively on Skype. Please email me to discuss availability or to arrange an initial session.
