About me

If you are experiencing difficult feelings such as anxiety, low mood, frustration, fear or anger you are not alone. These feelings could be related to a situation or relationship you find yourself in or you may not know where they are coming from. I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist with nearly 18 years experiencing of working in the mental health field. I can work with you to help you find the best path through your difficulties. I am dedicated to helping people understand themselves and their emotions. I will offer you a calm, safe confidential environment in which to explore the issues that are affecting you. 

I have a therapy room in my home in which I see my clients. 

Training, qualifications & experience



  • Bachelor Medicine and Bachelor Surgery (MBBS), Newcastle University. 


  • Certificate in Hypnotherapy and counselling skills (Cert. Hyp. CS), Chrysalis courses.

I originally trained as a medical doctor and worked as a psychiatrist specialising in addictions. I left this role 13 years ago to look after my young children. I have since retrained as person centred psychotherapist. I am also trained as a hypnotherapist. 

I have worked with children and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, fears and phobias, loss and bereavement. 

My approach is mainly person centred but I have experience of using CBT, mindfulness, motivational interviewing and solution focused therapy. 

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.
