About me


Stressed, depressed and/or anxious? Having relationship issues at home, work or elsewhere? Or is any other area of life not working as well as you’d like? I will support you to find a way forward from here.

I am a Relate & NHS trained, fully qualified Counsellor specialising in Couples and Relationship Counselling. I am currently only offering ONLINE sessions.

I have helped all sorts of people in all sorts of situations. I can support you whether you’re in a new relationship, in a long-term relationship, or not in a relationship at all. I can support you through a major relationship crisis to smaller issues that are perhaps making you unhappy.

Alongside my own private practice, I have practised at the NHS. Here, I worked in primary care as an individual, couple and psychosexual therapist dealing with relationship issues, affairs & betrayals, separation & divorce, sexual problems, family issues, sexual abuse, infertility, menopause & peri-menopause, hormones, depression, anxiety, gender issues, self-esteem, stress, bereavement and anger issues to name a few. I previously worked at Relate, counselling couples and young people.

I have worked within the LGBTI community - helping clients who are struggling to make a decision about their future. I passionately believe that every human being has a right to feel fulfilled. I also offer counselling support to partners and parents of individuals and couples questioning or affirming their gender and sexuality.

I work with my clients to develop their understanding of themselves and others and give them tools to make the changes they want in their lives.

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.


College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists

COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.

All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.
