I believe that we all have the capacity to be fulfilled, content and to achieve our full potential.
However, sometimes current events, past experiences, or the decisions we make, can result in our unhappiness.
People come to therapy for many reasons including anxiety, depression or low confidence. Others may be experiencing relationship difficulties, or wish to better understand themselves and why they think, feel and behave as they do.
All the services I offer are tailored to meet your unique circumstances, style and pace.
The aim of my therapeutic work is to support you in:
- fully understanding what your current issues are,
- identifying what you would like instead,
- planning how to make this happen,
- making the changes,
- living a happier and more fulfilled life.
I provide a professional and confidential counselling & psychotherapy service and have been working in psychological wellbeing for over 25 years.
The therapy I provide is informed by Transactional Analysis, effective with a wide range of therapeutic issues. It is unique in the depth of its theory, yet provides easy to understand ways to explore and identify a plan for change, through a personalised, confidential and professional service.
As a Registered Member of the BACP my practice is informed by it's Ethical Framework and Professional Guidelines.
To maintain and develop my practice I receive regular supervision, receive personal therapy and attend continuing professional development events.
In addition to my counselling & therapy practice I also work with individuals, teams and organisations to facilitate personal and professional growth and development.
Should you have any questions about our working together please email or call me and I'd be happy to answer them. My website may also help you decide if I'm the therapist for you.
Whilst we may not be able to change what's happened, we can change the impact it has on us now.

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).
