About me

I have over thirty years experience working as a psychologist. I am registered as health and counselling psychologist with the HCPC (PYL22752) and a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

I have worked with the full range of issues that bring people to seek help in counselling and therapy.  These include anxiety, phobias, obsessive and compulsive issues, trauma, depression, stress, work based issues, relationship difficulties and couples work.  I also have specialist expertise in the assessment and therapeutic approaches to neurological conditions.

I adopt a flexible client centred approach to working with people, using principles from the major therapeutic traditions (person centred, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic).

Besides therapeutic practice, I am also an Associate Professor at the University of the West of England, where I teach on the professional doctorate course in counselling psychology.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified health and counselling psychologist, with qualifications in each of these areas, plus additional expertise and training in neuropsychology, couples work and trauma.

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

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.


My Westbury on Trym office has ground floor rooms, but there are two small steps at the entrance. Please let me know if you would prefer a ground floor room. All offices at the Salisbury location are on the first floor.
