About me

I am a qualified counsellor, although I initially trained as a Clinical Psychologist as well as a secondary school teacher. These experiences shaped my ability to develop strong and trusting therapeutic relationships with my clients based on compassion, trust and empathy. I work in an integrative way, which means that I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to suit you as an individual. I aim to work gently and collaboratively with you, providing a safe and supportive space to explore the experiences that have brought you to counselling. I offer both short- and longer-term counselling in-person, online or telephonically.

In addition to my private practice, I currently work part-time at Off The Record in Bath, counselling children and young people.

When you contact me, I will reply to set up an initial telephonic consultation. I will then phone you at your convenience and we will discuss your reasons for seeking counselling and previous support you might have had. I will explain how I work and you will have a chance to ask any questions you might have. Reaching out for help is a big step but it is also a very brave step. Therefore it is important that you feel comfortable talking to me. If we agree that we can work together, then I will offer you a counselling slot and a start date.

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.
