About me

I am a qualified therapist and since 2004 I have provided one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy to adults, young people and children.

I specialise in working with male sexual abuse and have significant experience in working with men and boys affected by rape, sexual abuse, sexual assaults and sexual violence. I have over eight years experience of managing a male only sexual exploitation service and in supporting boys and men at risk of, or who have experienced sexual exploitation and abuse. I am also an experienced trainer and public speaker addressing male sexual abuse on a national level.

I am also experienced in working with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, anger, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties and more.

I am also a qualified supervisor and since 2012 I have provided supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors, and also to other practitioners working with children in high risk situations.

I am registered and accredited with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) meaning my counselling practice has been deemed sufficiently ethical.
