About me

My first career was in education management and human resources. In my thirties I began training as a counsellor, and I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist for the past nineteen years. 


I am BACP Accredited, which means I have achieved a substantial level of training and experience that has been approved by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (not every BACP member is accredited: go to for more information).


I have an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy and am registered as a Psychotherapist with the UKCP (see useful links). I am also a Clinical Supervisor, working with counsellors and psychotherapists.
