About me

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with over seven years clinical experience. I continue my professional development in psychoanalytic psychotherapy with the Guild of Psychotherapists in London.

Counselling and psychotherapy are ways of finding more capacity to understand and live with ourselves. It can be a way to unpack thoughts and feelings which have been hard to talk about, providing a confidential space in which you can speak about your life’s journey, as well as what occupies your thoughts today. This might involve exploring the anxieties, relationships, dreams, and experiences which are significant to you.

Counselling and psychotherapy will not give you tools or advice. Instead it will help you find new perspectives about the parts of yourself which may feel hidden, troubling or confusing.

I typically work with 50 minute sessions taking place once- or twice-weekly.  At present I am working at a distance using a secure, video-based platform. I usually work from rooms at 10 Southgate Street in central Winchester.

I adhere to the BACP’s Code of Ethics, which includes standards on confidentiality, supervision, complaints and continuing professional development (CPD).

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-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.
