Psychotherapy and Counselling

I work with individuals, couples and families on a range of issues from relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression to trauma and neurological rehabilitation.

I have experience of both short-term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy and specialise in working with musicians and performing artists and in working with trauma.

My core training was in Person-Centred Therapy at Metanoia Institute, but I am also a qualified EMDR practitioner, and I combine this with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing, which is particularly helpful for clients who want or need to make behavioural changes.

I am registered and accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a member of EMDR UK and the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science

Acquired Brain Injury and Long-Term Conditions Management

I offer 1:1 psychotherapeutic input for clients with an acquired brain injury, stroke or other long-term physical health condition. The emphasis is on self-management using either Motivational Interviewing or ACT approaches to support clients in making behavioural changes to aid in the adjustment process.


I have over 15 years’ experience working with a community-based brain injury team working alongside a multi-disciplinary team and 10 years’ experience of medico-legal work. I have particular experience of adjustment work, both with the injured person and their family members.


I offer clinical supervision to trainees and more experienced counsellors and psycho-therapists. I have over 10 years’ experience with individuals and groups using a multi-modal framework. My aim is make sure you, as a practitioner, are mentally and physically well, resourced and supported to work with all the issues our clients bring.


My training experience has taken me all over the country, working with a range of health professionals both within the NHS and as a private provider. I offer training which combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with Motivational Interviewing. This can help clinicians plan and support client goals more effectively by focussing on the individual values of the client.
