About me

I am a fully qualified, psychodynamic counsellor offering once-weekly counselling to adults and young adults. I am experienced at working with depression, anxiety, panic, difficulty making and sustaining relationships, self-harming, and difficulty managing anger.

I have a specialist interest in working with people who may be experiencing gender identity issues, or who are affected in some other way by difficulties surrounding gender identity. My practice room is centrally located in Winchester, provides ample free parking and is accessible via public transportation.

I am now offering online counselling.

Please see my website for further information.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
