About me

During these unprecedented times, it's more important than ever to be mindful of our mental health and well-being. I am offering telephone, skype or zoom sessions with immediate availability, at £35 per session. 

The way I work is to enable you, the client, to lead the agenda and to explore any areas that you would like to. I can offer short term or longer term work, particularly using Person-centred and Psychodynamic methods, according to your requirements. The work is, understandably, discreet and confidential.

I can offer one to one counselling as well as couples counselling.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by it's Code of Ethics. I have a current DBS and Insurance.

I hold the Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and the Post Graduate Level 5 qualification in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (CPCAB.) I have 30 years experience of working in financial services, at Director level for major banks, in Capital markets.

Whilst I work with people from all walks of life, I have a particular interest in working with people who have long term health conditions. I work as the Well-being Counsellor for the Somerville Foundation, a national charity supporting people born with a heart condition (

Please feel free to contact me via telephone or email to discuss how we may potentially work together.
