About me

I have over 18 years of experience in this field and feel passionate about this work after repeatedly seeing how therapy has helped change lives for the better.

I am a qualified counsellor as well as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where any issue can be explored at your individual pace. 

Initially I will offer to meet with you for at least 3 consecutive and weekly consultations.  This will give us an opportunity to see whether we are right for each other. 

Many people choose to begin therapy because they want to feel better, improve their relationships and be more successful at work.  Psychotherapy can be helpful in addressing the emotional or sometimes even physical pain that can get in the way of such goals.  I work with clients who appreciate that lasting change is indeed possible, and have the courage to forgo the false promise of a 'quick fix'. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I first qualified as a Counsellor in 2004 with an Advanced Diploma In Therapeutic Counselling and have since then been working in private practice.  Whilst working in private practice, I completed various trainings including a Certificate in Systemic Practice.  Due to my wish to help my clients get to the roots of their difficulties, after a 9 year course, I also qualified as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the Arbours Association.  I am an accredited member of the BACP and registered member of the UKCP.

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
