About me

I am an experienced and accredited BACP-registered psychotherapeutic Counsellor with over fifteen years’ experience of working with individuals as a Coach and Therapist. I work with adults of all ages, teenagers, students and couples. I offer both face to face and online therapy sessions from a quiet and private therapy room in St Brelade as well as offering home visits for those who cannot get to me. I also offer online sessions for individuals based anywhere in the UK or abroad.

I understand that you might be struggling with a difficult situation, a crisis in your life or emotions that feel overwhelming right now. Whatever you are feeling, I am here to offer you a warm, caring and supportive space, where you can talk confidentially in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

As a Humanistic therapist, I believe that everyone can make new choices that create the possibility of positive change in their lives, however difficult it may seem. Together we can explore your situation and the difficulties you are facing, enabling you to create change in your life, feel better and move forward. Seeking out therapy can be a positive first step in improving your relationship with yourself and others and in improving your mental and emotional wellbeing.

It is the relationship between you and your Therapist which is the most important factor in successful therapy and finding the right therapist for you is key to this. I therefore, offer a free initial half-hour consultation.

Please feel free to contact me on 07943 778455 to arrange this no obligation consultation.

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.

Accredited register membership
