About me

Please note I have started one to one and couple/relationship therapy sessions again in person.

Due to the ongoing situation regarding the Corona Virus, and in an effort to help stop the spread, we will be working in accordance with government guidelines.

However, the current situation is causing a lot of people to experience increased anxiety and fear. If you do require therapy at this time but do not wish to meet in person I also offer remote sessions either via telephone or video call using Zoom or Skype.

If you would like to arrange therapy please contact me.

Psychotherapy is a word that derives from ancient Greek and means 'liberating the soul'.  Our sessions together are an opportunity to talk about concerns and issues that might be difficult to share with family and friends and that might feel overwhelming to deal with alone.

It is a chance to feel supported, gain insight and make positive changes, in a way which respects your values, personal resources and freedom of choice.

I am passionate about facilitating transformation and healing, and providing a safe and confidential space where you can bring all of your Self, your feelings, your pain, your joy and dreams, your frustrations, your wisdom, your light and shadows.

​My approach is relational, integrative and transpersonal (spiritual).

Sessions mainly involve talking, but breathing exercises, mindfulness, meditation and creativity may also be useful.

If this is something that could be healing for you, please get in touch to find out more or to book an initial consultation.

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.

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.

You can park for free in the Red Lion's car park opposite St Mary's Church.
