About me

I am a BACP accredited counsellor who works in and around South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge city. I offer a secure space in which to listen to you in complete confidence, with short or longer term psychotherapy available.

My approach integrates a range of techniques with a confident grounding in Psychodynamic theory, allowing me to work with a person’s current situation as well as how past events may direct their present thoughts and feelings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified, BACP registered and accredited psychodynamic counsellor. I have experience working with adults in private practice and with young people in schools and with charities operating in Cambridgeshire.

I have received a PgDip in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire, continuing to develop my practice by undertaking additional training in Creative Arts Therapy and working specifically with adolescents.

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.
