Welcome to my website
… worried about work, family difficulties or a relationship?
… experiencing a change in your life and unsure of the way ahead?
… feeling anxious or depressed?
… struggling to come to terms with a bereavement or loss of some kind?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop.. take a breath... look around..., reflect on and absorb what's going on in your life.
No space to pause.... be still.... gather yourself together and start to make sense of things...
Maybe you've been soldiering on for some time but, underneath it all, feel unhappy or anxious - unsure what to do or who to turn to. Talking with family or friends is often useful and may be all you need to do most of the time. At other times though, that might not be easy or even possible. This is when meeting, in confidence, with a counsellor or psychotherapist can be helpful, whether it’s something recent that's upset you or you've been unhappy for some time.
Talking things through with a professional, someone outside your family or social group, can offer a fresh perspective on whatever is troubling you. It also provides a dedicated space and time where you'll be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to slow down and reflect on things in more depth and detail. This helps you to focus, understand yourself better, re-gain your equilibrium and find your own way forward.

UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
If you're looking for a psychotherapist or counsellor it's essential to find someone registered with a professional organisation such as UKCP. Choosing an accredited/registered counsellor or psychotherapist ensures that you work with someone who is fully qualified, supervised, insured and accountable.

I have extensive experience in bereavement work - this includes being a bereavement counsellor in an NHS Hospice for over five years. I'm particularly skilled and attuned to working in this field and my experience includes counselling those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a sudden death, a suicide, or the death of a child. Please see Bereavement Counselling for more details
I believe we have far more emotional and psychological resources than we think we do and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by someone else can help us tap into and realise more of those inner strengths.
We're all unique, different and shaped by our particular life history and experiences, so I tailor how I work in therapy in response to the personality and changing needs of each individual. I'll encourage you to slow down, pause and reflect; pay more attention to your experience, find out more about yourself, discover and draw on your own resources.
Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:
Counselling & Psychotherapy give you a space where you can gain a deeper and broader understanding of yourself. Becoming more self-aware enables you to tap into your strengths, see your life and relationships more clearly, live more wholeheartedly and more consciously choose your way forward.
