About me

I offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Psychodynamic Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and mindfulness. I have worked as a therapist for the NHS, NSPCC and social care for over 20 years with adults and young people. I am experienced, warm and professional at supporting clients with anxiety, depression and trauma.

How to start

We can have a brief conversation about what is distressing you and arrange to meet in person. I recognise that it takes courage and strength to seek help and I will offer a transparent, supportive and safe therapeutic relationship.

The first session is an assessment appointment during which we can identify your difficulties, set achievable goals and discuss what approach would best suit you.

CBT information

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based approach. It proposes that how we think impacts on how we feel and behave, and vice-versa how we behave impacts on our feelings and how we think. It helps you to understand how you think about yourself, the world and other people around you. In our sessions I will help you monitor, learn about and challenge these processes to help you develop practical day to day coping strategies.

CBT is a time limited approach which focuses on the here and now. CBT can help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts.


Psychodynamic counselling is longer term, less structured approach than CBT.  It is helpful for clients to discuss and explore deep rooted issues in a safe environment. I also use compassion focused strategies and mindfulness in both of my approaches.


I am an Accredited registered member of the BACP (069729).

I am provisionally accredited with the BABCP
