About me

I'm a highly qualified psychotherapist, psychosexual relationship therapist and an addictions specialist who helps individuals, couples, families and groups from all walks of life, cultural backgrounds, religion, gender, sex and disabilities.

I have a wealth of experience working with issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, addictions - drugs and alcohol misuse, relationship problems, sexual difficulties, sex addiction and compulsive behaviour.

In addition to private practice, I also have experience within commissioning health services and developing primary care GP services within the National Health Service (NHS).

My approach to psychotherapy is immensely influenced by my own eventful and often challenging life experiences, which crucially gives me deeper empathy and insight into people’ problems, past and present, with a greater understanding of why particular behaviors are adopted and used as coping mechanisms.

Person Centered (a non-directive humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a therapist can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas).

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) (focuses on how thoughts and perceptions affect the way we feel and behave)

Psychodynamic (sees human functioning as based upon the interaction of drives and forces within us, particularly unconscious ones)

Transactional Analysis (TA) (is a modern psychology that involves a set of practical conceptual tools designed to promote personal growth and change and a method to improve communication).

Gestalt Therapy (sees self-awareness as the key to personal growth and developing full potential focusing on ‘what is happening in the present moment’)

We are all born with an attachment to a relationship and that we all need relationships for our survival. The client-therapist relationship is the most fundamental part of the therapy that produces positive changes.

I include goals and targets within my therapeutic model and as a way of measuring your progress and outcomes. This style of engagement continues to build trust in the relationship and drives the development and improvement of your health and well-being. This style of practice also provides a structure that helps to increase confidence and motivation to make life-changing decisions.

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)

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.

Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC)

The Association for Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC) is the leading UK organisation providing hope, information, support, and treatment options for those affected by sexual addiction and compulsivity.

ATSAC sets standards of practice for qualified therapists and provides accreditation for specialist training courses. A therapist who has gone through ATSAC recognised training will have the knowledge to respect and work with you sensitively to find out how best to support your needs.

Therapy options may include one-to-one sessions, group work, and/or relationship counselling. ATSAC is a not-for-profit organisation.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
