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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
