About me

The world can be a difficult place. Sometimes, life can feel pointless. I offer an open space where you can explore yourself and your life without blame or judgement. I’m a psychosynthesis practitioner. It’s a perspective that sees life struggles, however painful, as opportunities to grow beyond what is holding you back.

For all our different approaches, counsellors are united in the belief that two people talking openly and honestly together, can find clarity, assurance and encouragement. It's not always an easy conversation and it's rarely a quick one. It's not cheap either. I charge £50 for a weekly session lasting an hour. You may bring a specific problem or just a general feeling. Either is good. The journey starts from where you are. We’ll explore who you are, what you want and what stands in your way. Where I bring empathy and understanding, I can also bring challenge and I’ll be right alongside you, all the way.

To find out if we 'feel right' for each other, I offer a free initial meeting with no obligation to continue. And, like most of the rest of the world, I currently only work on Zoom.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Psychosynthesis Education Trust where I attained a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling. 

Member organisations


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.
