In private practice, I work with individuals, groups and organisations. My therapeutic style is embedded in relationship and engagement. Therefore if you experience challenges with relationship or communication, this is my strength. Following 20 years of experience within NHS, private practice and educational organisations I utilise somatic psychology, human development and potential along with creative methodologies. Ultimately, uncovering potential, dealing with unhelpful behaviours.
As mentioned above, my specialty is communication. I have studied the art of communication over a 20 year period. I believe it is vital to personal happiness, confidence as well as work and functional relationships. I offer you the opportunity to experience how you communicate, get feedback and look at different ways of effective communication.
Reach out to me if you keep bumping into the same relationship issues time and time again. I understand how sometimes it can feel like no matter what you do, it doesn't seem to work out. I would love to work with you to find pragmatic solutions to what seem like hopeless or never ending issues. It's completely realistic and possible.

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
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).
