I have over 10 years experience of working in the NHS and in the voluntary sector (Cruse Bereavement Care), as well as in my own private practice. In my clinical work I have worked with a wide range of issues, from crisis intervention to journeys of self discovery, stress management, depression and health issues. I tailor my approach to your specific needs; no two individuals are alike, and recognition of your uniqueness and individuality are a central tenet of my counselling work.
I worked for many years with physical therapies and this informs a high awareness of health and body issues, and the effects mind and body have on each other.
Work can be short term and focused, addressing specific issues, or a longer term exploration of the self to find out who and why you really are.

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.
