About me

For all of us there are times when life becomes difficult.  I have over 15 years of experience working in this field and feel passionate about this work after repeatedly seeing how therapy has helped change lives for the better.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where any issue can be explored at your individual pace.  In this space, understanding and making sense of your experience will allow change to take place.

Training, qualifications & experience

I originally qualified as a Counsellor in 2004 with an Advanced Diploma In Therapeutic Counselling and have been working in private practice ever since.  I completed a Certificate in Systemic Practice in 2005 and due to my wish to help my clients get to the roots of their difficulties, in December 2018, after a 9 year course, I qualified as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist.

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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

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.

£90.00 per session

Additional information

My fees are between £90 - £120 per session, depending on the session time.  If you would like to book a session you can send a text or phone leaving a voicemail and I will return your call to arrange a short phone conversation.

Initially I tend to see clients for, at least, a block of 3 sessions.  This will then give us an opportunity to see whether we are right for each other.


I work from Mondays to Fridays. Please contact me for my availability.

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.
