About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor and teacher. I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist for over thirty years. I aim to make your experience of counselling or psychotherapy friendly, supportive, encouraging and non-judgemental.

I have trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including: Adlerian, Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. Our exploration will take place mainly through talking, and it will sometimes be helpful to draw upon other things such as: literature, art, drama, play, body awareness, mindfulness and yoga. Our meetings will involve being curious and open, bringing humour and seriousness, with opportunities to try things out and experiment in a safe environment. I believe in the value of what is sometimes called “psychological education”. As a result, I will encourage you to explore ideas about human development and, as we work, I will share my thinking and theories with you. Above all, we will work at your pace and in a way which suits you and helps you to resolve your difficulties.

I work with a wide range of clients and presenting issues, including severe mental health issues. I have worked in many settings including: private practice, employee assistance programmes, University, Further Education and Secondary Schools. I have also spent six years working in an therapeutic centre, with young people who experienced severe emotional and behavioural difficulties. My experience of working in several large organisations and as a manager, gives me an understanding of the issues associated with the work place and within teams.

Equality & Diversity

I recognise that many individuals and communities experience discrimination and oppression on the grounds of their gender (including transgender and transsexual people), relationship or marital status, race or ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation (because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or heterosexual), age, health status, appearance, language, background, class, faith or religious belief, physical appearance and political opinions. I believe that equality for all is a basic human right and I actively oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. I welcome discussion of these issues in counselling and psychotherapy.

I am a Senior Accredited member of the British Association For Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and subscribe to the BACP “Ethical Framework”. I hold an “enhanced” DBS Check for working with young people, adults and vulnerable adults.
