About me

I am a qualified integrative counselling and psychotherapist, meaning I use a few different approaches to find the best fit therapy for you.  That could be goal focused like CBT, or a more relaxed and humanistic approach based on what you talk about that session.  How we work is up to you but I’m happy to discuss with you based on your goals to find the best way forward.

I have experience working with a number of issues such as anxiety, depression, work related stress, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, bereavement and general dissatisfaction in life.  I also have experience working with young people (11-18) and couples.

Therapy is your journey, so I will be led by you.  I believe that you are the expert of your own life and having the space to talk through difficulties with support and empathy can relieve the stress.

I understand the importance of finding the right therapist, and so I offer free telephone assessment sessions.  Call or email me to make an appointment and we can discuss your reasons for starting therapy.

** All sessions are now Skype or telephone based, please contact me for more information **

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.

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.
