About me

I am a psychotherapist with 13 years of post-qualification clinical experience, and 18 years of pastoral care.

Trained in the integration of clinical mental health counselling with religion and spirituality, I have experience of working with both religiously/spiritually oriented clients and those for whom religion and spirituality are not significant.

Having respect for human diversity, acknowledging the uniqueness of individuals, and valuing each person's life experience, I can deliver counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and groups in a multi-culturally sensitive and contextually relevant manner.

It is my belief that counselling can make a difference in human lives. Professionally, I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and thus I abide by the ethical, legal, and professional guidelines of this professional body.

How I can help you.

You want to live your life to the full, as much as is possible. However, you may be experiencing the feeling that there can be something preventing the fulfilment of this goal in your life. Pain and anxiety may be preventing you from living your full potential.

It can be difficult to overcome the challenges to a richer and fuller life. Emotional and behavioural difficulties, relationship struggles, loss, grief, loneliness, trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and chronic pain can make it difficult to live your life fully.

Cultural, religious, spiritual, social, and personal identity issues can diminish your joy, and prevent you from living your life fully. Without professional help, relief, joy, and fulfilment can remain an illusion.

I invite you to sit with me, in the safe and confidential space that I offer, and we can explore together your unique life experiences, and find ways to help you move towards achieving your goals.

The help that you need could just be a phone call away.

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.

Key details

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.
