About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor. Possessing over two decades of professional experience working with diverse communities, in statutory education and third sector organisations. I offer short term or long term counselling agreements.

I learned at a young age that Speaking Our Business is wrong. That we should keep our private lives, concerns, struggles and thoughts to ourselves.

Through my own life challenges and time spent in the therapist client’s chair; I have learned of the freedom that comes from choosing to Speak Our Business, with trusted other(s).

Speaking Our Business can free us from long outgrown behaviours and habits. It can liberate us from secrets held inside for far too long. It can open us up to the beauty of real connections to life and others.

It is my belief that change is possible at any stage or age. I value difference and passionately believe in your intrinsic worthiness and right to be you. No concern of yours is too big or small to bring to my clients’ chair.

I offer you an open mind, gentle curiosity and a commitment to apply my full attention and skills to your concerns. It is my hope and intention that we build a safe and trusting counselling relationship, in which we work in partnership, steadily progressing towards your desired outcomes.

Is it time for you to begin Speaking Your Business?

Member organisations


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.
