Hello …  I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, counsellor, supervisor and trainer, working in private practice in Loughborough, Leicestershire.

My therapy room is in the heart of the town, with good links to public transport. My style of therapy is creatively designed to meet the varied needs of individuals, couples and small groups.

If you are looking for a counsellor, psychotherapist or supervisor, and you feel you want to find out whether that might be me, please ring or email to discuss your needs. We can arrange a brief meeting, giving us a chance to ask the sort of questions that help with that decision. This  initial assessment takes half an hour and is not a commitment to therapy sessions; it is an important opportunity for us to find out whether it is going to be possible to work together.

My private therapy practice was established in 2003, when I qualified as a Hypnotherapist. Since then I have gone on to train further and expand my knowledge to a much wider field. Here are my qualifications and professional registration details:

  • PTSTA(P) Provisional Teaching & Supervising Transactional Analyst (Psychotherapy)
  • MSc Masters’ Degree in Psychotherapy (Middlesex University)
  • CTA(P) Certified Transactional Analyst (Psychotherapy)
  • PGCD Post-graduate Clinical Diploma (Transactional Analysis Counselling)
  • DHyp Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy
  • UK Council for Psychotherapy UKCP Registration
  • UK Association for Transactional Analysis UKATA Registration


I specialise in working with people who have anxiety disorders. Anxiety is just a word some people use to describe symptoms such as:

  • panic attacks
  • stress
  • low mood
  • sleep disruption
  • feeling unable to cope or over-whelmed by everyday things
  • feeling scared or tearful
  • sometimes depression can be described this way too

You may have a different way to describe how you feel.

Different Approaches and Telephone Counselling

I use many approaches with anxious people, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), relaxation, mindfulness and hypnotherapy. What works for one person might not suit another.

Sometimes people cannot get to sessions, perhaps because they live too far away or have problems with mobility. On the whole, therapy works better face-to-face however, in some circumstances, telephone counselling can be highly constructive. We can discuss this as an option if you think it could work for you.
