About me

Hello and welcome.

I am a UKCP registered integrative psychotherapist, and have worked in the voluntary sector and private practice for over 20 years. Choosing a therapist can be overwhelming, but you have already taken the difficult first step of recognising that you need support.

People go to therapy for many different reasons such as anxiety, depression,  sadness, relationship issues, loss - these can be triggered by life events beyond our control, both big and small.  Everyone experiences their life in their own unique way, and that is why working from an integrative approach enables me to use a wide range of methods to support people according to their particular needs, including developing more awareness of the connection between the mind, the body and our emotions.

The focus of therapy with me is to create a compassionate and non-judgemental space for you to address issues that are troubling you. To work together with you to understand better and become more aware of the states of mind, patterns of behaviour or situations which you find yourself repeatedly stumbling into.  Through the therapy you will develop tools to recognise and cope better with these situations, and ultimately be able to move beyond them.

If you would like a free phone consultation, please email me at and we will arrange a time to speak, or you can call or text me on 07779013212.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
