I’m Vanessa, a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist trained in Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am an Accredited Member of BACP, MBACP (Accred), and an Accredited Registrant of NCS, MNCS Accred. I am a Professional Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).

I offer online and in-person meetings. I offer weekly one-to-one psychotherapy to adults on a short-term or open-ended basis, depending on your preference and needs. Online therapy is provided to those living and residents in the UK.

Maybe you are struggling with the things of life; perhaps it is already a while since you have been looking around, wondering whether counselling or psychotherapy is something for you. If this is the case, then searching for some help is an essential first step towards a better and more fulfilling life.

I understand it may be daunting, so I suggest getting in touch with me for a free initial telephone call.


Vanessa is kind, compassionate and non-judgemental, which helped ease the anxiety I felt when speaking openly about my struggles. I am now so much more aware of the way that I think and feel and that’s due to Vanessa’s ability to see what’s going on beneath the surface. Thank you for enabling me to feel more like myself!

I was referred to Vanessa for CBT by my university. From the very first session I felt safe working with her. She has pushed me to get the most from the sessions helping me be open and honest, giving me work to do in my own time and sharing resources – all of which has been key to the progress I have made. I have learnt so much about myself and what I can do to make the most of my life.

Thank you, Vanessa.


Vanessa is a kind and honest therapist. She has helped me in easing my anxiety and evaluate how and why I may be feeling certain ways. The experience has been a rollercoaster but Vanessa was like my seatbelt, made me feel safe and secure.

Thank you,
