I am a registered counsellor and psychotherapist with the UKCP, having completed an MA in 2010.
I offer a safe space in which to explore, in a non-judgemental way, the difficulties you are experiencing. At times, we can all feel stressed by the pressures in our lives which can cloud our view of both ourselves and others, so I aim to provide a sympathetic and supportive place in which to hear and work respectfully and sensitively with your concerns. I work in different ways with different individuals depending on their problems and needs.
I am trained to work with a wide range of psychological issues, and I offer a specialist service for couples struggling with their relationship.

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Owing to COVID-19, I have needed to restrict my work to appointments to Zoom. Now, however, I have found a suitably spacious and airy room to rent to return to face to face work. Consequently, to cover the costs of this, I have differentiated my fees to the following:
Individuals: via Zoom £45, face to face £50
Couples: via Zoom £55, face to face £60
