About me

I’m an online counsellor and psychotherapist. Are you are anxious and overwhelmed and struggling with the pandemic and finding it hard to cope? Are you feeling that old issues and feelings are cropping up for you? I can help with that. In an initial online session we can discuss your problems and find out what will be most helpful for you.

Sometimes it’s to do with past overwhelming experiences in your life ( e.g. bereavement, sexual assault, bullying, medical or health experiences, childhood abuse or neglect, transport accidents). These may be intruding now in a way that feels unmanageable. If so, then a trauma-focused EMDR will be vital to your recovery.

I'm a fully qualified EMDR Practitioner, an MBACP Accredited psychodynamic psychotherapist & supervisor. EMDR is an evidence-based technique to process old traumatic experiences that keep impacting on the present. I have worked in the field for 20 years and have the experience and knowledge to help you through this difficult time.

My role is to help you resolve and move on from your difficulties and live more in the present without being triggered into old feelings. Social distancing and self isolation is hard for us all, but if you feel trapped and desperate there may well be some old experiences that are intruding. With EMDR the intensity of these feelings can be removed. Do contact me.

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.


United Kingdom Register of Counsellors / Psychotherapists (UKRCP) (UKRCP)

The UKRCP is a voluntary register of Counsellors / Psychotherapists held by BACP. A condition of registration is accreditation with either BACP, COSCA, UKAHPP or FDAP.

Registered practitioners are entitled to be known as a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor / Psychotherapist.


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.
