I have been a transpersonal therapeutic counsellor for over 26 years and am a registered member of BACP. I offer a unique and specific therapeutic counselling service based upon client led principles with regular reviews ensuring that the needs of the client are met. My work is ultimately about change, transformation and the recovery of innocence.
I get most of my referrals from local GP's and health centres, particularly for those patients experiencing high and elevated levels of anxiety and depression and those who do not wish to take psychotropic medication. I am quite eclectic and integrative in my approach, using a variety of modalities and techniques, including teaching mindfulness, meditation and vocal breath work for deep relaxation and management of mental health conditions as well as very experienced using and incorporating psychosynthesis, gestalt, TA, art therapy and psychodynamic theories.
With the past year and Covid-19 having had such an impact upon every single person, people are dealing with a huge range of individual, unique, work and personal issues, bringing up issues of lack of meaning and purpose, stark changes in and breakdown of relationships, bereavement, loneliness and how to reconnect with the world around them.
I do offer telephone and video based sessions as well as face to face sessions. My therapy room is fully risk assessed and is aired and sanitised between sessions.
Please do visit my website or give me a call, send me a text or e-mail to take that first and courageous step towards wellbeing, good mental health and contentment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been a transpersonal therapist/counsellor for over 26 years, I originally trained for three years at the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust (PG Dip Couns) and subsequently trained in CBT and Process Orientated Psychology. I am a registered member of BACP and have been a CQC registered Service Manager in a variety of residential mental health settings. I currently have a private therapeutic counselling & life coaching/mentoring practice and work with severely traumatised and neglected children at The Amicus Community and have worked within therapeutic and intentional communities for the past 10 years.
Do you experience elevated anxiety, deep depression, your moods fluctuating, stressed out, keep repeating old patterns not knowing how to bring change into your life? You may have experienced a recent bereavement or a breakup of a relationship, finding yourself demotivated and feeling sad with a lack of direction, purpose and meaning. Over the past 16 months or so, the impositions imposed upon us have highlighted and intensified our emotional, physical and spiritual worlds as well as dulled and diluted them.
I am very experienced working with young people as well as elders and see families as well as couples individually or together depending upon need.
It is a courageous step to take to enter into the therapeutic process and relationship, if you are serious about change, are prepared for a journey of self-development, of fulfilment, of being seen and heard then please do check out my website and call/email/message me. Take that first brave step towards transforming and creating the life that you desire.
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.

My fees are based upon what you, the client can afford, money does not have to be an issue as long as discussed from the onset. For those that can pay a higher fee, this allows me to have concessionary fees for those who may be economically disadvantaged. Appreciations.
My working hours are from 8:00 to 19:30 on weekdays and 08:00 to 12:00 weekends. I aim to be as flexible and accommodating as possible.
