Welcome to my website

Who am I?

I am an integrated psychotherapeutic counsellor, working with both individuals and couples. I have been working with clients for the past 10 years in NHS primary care and private practice. My primary modality is Transactional Analysis, but as an integrated psychotherapist, I draw upon a variety of therapeutic approaches to provide the most appropriate and tailored support for each individual I work with.

In addition to my work as a psychotherapeutic counsellor, I also have a strong academic background in the field of biomedical sciences, with a BSc, MRes and PhD.

What presenting problems can I provide therapeutic support with?


I have extensive experience working with a variety of mental health difficulties including low mood, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, problems with eating, addictive behaviours, bereavement, relationship issues, separation, changes of circumstances, obsessive-compulsive traits, issues navigating sexual orientation, gender dysphoria, and many other issues. If you have a specific presenting problem and would like to enquire whether I can provide you experienced support, do contact me to enquire. All enquiries are treated confidentially and are warmly welcomed.
