Welcome to my website
… worried about a relationship or work?
… going through difficulties with your family?
… feeling anxious or depressed?
… struggling with a bereavement or loss of some kind?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop.... breathe.... look around.… reflect on or absorb what's going on in your life.
No space to pause.... gather yourself together in one place.... and start to make sense of things....
It may be that you've been soldiering on for some time but, underneath it all, feel anxious and unhappy - uncertain what to do or who to turn to. Speaking with friends or family is often useful and may be all that you need to do for much of the time. Sometimes, though that might not be easy or even possible. And this is when meeting, in confidence, with a psychotherapist or counsellor, can be helpful, whether it’s something recent that's upset you or you've been worried and unhappy for some time.
Talking things through with a professional, someone outside your social group and family, can offer a fresh perspective on both yourself and what is troubling you. It offers a dedicated time and space where you'll be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to pause and reflect on things in more depth and detail. This helps you to focus and find clarity, understand yourself better, re-gain your balance and find your own way forward.

UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
When trying to find a counsellor or psychotherapist it's essential to look for someone registered with a professional organisation such as UKCP. Choosing an accredited/registered counsellor or psychotherapist means that you know you're working with someone who is fully trained, qualified, supervised, insured and accountable.
I trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist at Metanoia Institute and hold an MSc. Integrative Psychotherapy, BSc (Hons) Psychology and am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. I abide by the UKCP Code of Ethics. For further details of my training and qualifications please go to About me .
I have over 10 years experience of working with clients who bring a wide range of concerns to therapy, for example:
Anxiety, Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic attacks, Depression, Bereavements, Loss, Relationship issues, Work-related issues, Infertility, IVF, Family problems, Divorce & separation, Low self-esteem, Lack of confidence, Unresolved issues from the past, Childhood and adult trauma, Child abuse, Difficult memories, Pain and long term illnesses, Life transitions (e.g. ageing, retirement, redundancy, illness), Identity issues, Sexuality, Student concerns (e.g. exam stress & worry), Feelings of emptiness, Social isolation or loneliness.
Please go to About me for further information about my qualifications and experience.
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 both 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. Please visit my page - What is Counselling/Psychotherapy? for more information and what meeting for an initial session involves.
