About me and my therapy practice

I am sorry but currently I am not able to work face to face however I can offer both online and telephone sessions.

I am a Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and included on the BACP Register for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I hold a Masters and Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Reading and a Diploma in Clinical Supervision.

I offer one to one therapy sessions with adults and young people aged 18 and above, who may be experiencing difficulties within their lives such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, life changes, personal and family relationship issues, bereavement, or anything that they feel might be having an impact on their emotional and psychological wellbeing. 

I provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment in which my client and I can work together to look at how best to deal with their problems. I offer both short and long term counselling with an initial assessment in which I can establish my client's need for future therapeutic work. 

My core training is in the psychodynamic model which has evolved from psychoanalytical therapy and is based on the belief that sometimes past experiences may influence present ones. My approach is to enable the client to become aware of possible feelings and thoughts they might have carried with them unconsciously from an earlier experience and may now be transferring onto present issues resulting in current difficulties.

I have a special interest in working with older adults.



Practice description

My practice is within walking distance from Reading town centre as well as having easy access to buses. Parking is always available. My consulting room is on the first floor. I have 14 years experience of providing individual therapy to adults. Please look at my website for more information on my therapeutic approach. I have worked extensively with adults both in private practice, a voluntary counselling agency and in an educational institution. I am registered with Aviva Insurance to provide counselling services.

My first session

The first session will take the form of an assessment where I will take a short history from you and find out about what has brought you to seek therapy. In this session you will have the opportunity to ask any questions which hopefully will help you decide as to whether you would like to continue with some regular therapy sessions. I will try to give you as much information as I can to help you make an informed decision.

About me and my therapy practice

For the present time I am now only able to offer either online or telephone counselling and supervision.

Week days and evenings are available for regular supervision sessions.  I am very happy to talk on the telephone before arranging an initial meeting where we can discuss your requirements in detail.

I hold a Diploma in Clinical Supervision from CPPD (UK) Limited.

Although my core training as a therapist is in the psychodynamic model my supervision training was integrative and focused on the relationship between the therapist and their client and how supervision can provide a supportive and containing space for the supervisee to feel able to talk about their work and look together at the therapeutic process.


My fees are £50 for one hour, £60 for 1.5 hours.

My practice is within walking distance of Reading town centre and is on a bus route. Parking is always available. My consulting room is on the first floor.
