About me


People have always fascinated me which is why I have chosen to work closely with them. Listening, taking a firm interest, and not judging are the keywords to my practice: I offer this to every person who takes up counselling with me.


Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling. BACP Accredited Course.

Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling Skills, Theory & Practice.

Certificate in Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Certificate in Assessing Clients for Counselling

Post Graduate Certificate in Education

Professional Development

After training, I worked for a BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) accredited counselling charity for a total of 8 years. I counselled clients from all different walks of life, differing social backgrounds and with a wide range of issues.

I have also worked at a University Counselling Service gaining insight into working with younger people and the issues relevant to them.

Private Practice

For the last 6 years, I have run my own private practice.

Counselling Trainer

For the past 10 years, I have trained students from initial counselling skill courses right up to diploma level. I currently train final year diploma students on a BACP Accredited Counselling course.

Training students ensures that I keep up to date with the latest developments in my profession and that my own knowledge is constantly being increased which subsequently benefits my private practice clients.
