Since working as a private practitioner, I have worked with a wide range of clients, both individuals and couples. My counselling room is spacious, air-conditioned and, comfortable; this creates a safe and relaxed environment.
I am experienced in working with issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, sense of unhappiness, low self-esteem, and divorce. I am trained in both the psychodynamic and person-centred models and will personalise the sessions to fit specific, individual clientele.
When volunteering for a charity help line, I came to the realisation that I had a passion for counselling and therefore, altered the direction of my career and started my training in 2003.
The highly complementary testimonials I have received throughout my career have enabled me to build a large practice on the basis of a trustworthy reputation. Clients have attended sessions with me for varying periods of time, depending on individual circumstances. I often find that clients leave my sessions with a new sense of clarity and belief in themselves and their lives. I also feel I am able to offer the necessary perspectives in order to move through the obstacles that we all face in life.
I fully appreciate that the hardest part of seeing a counsellor is making that first call but the benefits can be life changing.

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.
