About me

Having been trained as a Psychodynamic psychotherapist and working in local authority and NHS services for over 25 years, this has allowed me to provide therapy from an experienced position that enables me to work in a way that is practical, accessible and thoughtful to your needs. I have a great deal of experience of working with adults, children, and families. this allows me to understand the importance of relationships and the dynamics that occur within and between people and the lives that they live.

Anxiety and loss can show itself in many forms and can underpin many life changes that highlight separation. This provides people with challenges that they may need support to understand and ultimately work through. If you have ever felt ‘I can’t manage’ therapy is a place to experience a relationship that enables you to feel the unmanageable can be managed.

I invite you to get in touch and look forward to hearing from you and thinking with you a way forward.

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.
