About me

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist (BACP and UKCP Registered) offering both short- and long-term therapy to individuals and couples. I also run a weekly psychotherapy group.

In my work I combine a supportive, non-judgemental style with being appropriately challenging creating an environment that is accepting and empowering.

As a clinician, I draw on a set of complimentary theories in psychotherapy aiming to facilitate change and growth. My approach is relational, meaning I see the relationship between client and therapist as a vital aspect the therapeutic process and outcome. My work is collaborative and respectful of the client’s pace and inner resources and I work towards forming a relationship based on mutual trust in a safe and confidential environment.

I have many years of experience in the fields of therapy, group work and applied psychology and have been formally trained in both psychotherapy and counselling. I am experienced in working with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained and worked as a clinician in Australia, Germany and The Netherlands, as well as in the UK. I have previously worked in the charity sector and as part of a multi-disciplinary mental health team in the NHS. I currently work in private practice and run a multi-disciplinary counselling and psychotherapy clinic.

My academic and professional training in this field includes:

  • Diploma in Counselling
  • BA (Hons) in Counselling (First)
  • MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (Distinction)
  • International Certification as a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist (CTA)

I am multi-lingual and culturally aware and welcome clients from any cultural background; I have a personal and clinical interest in issues relating to cultural identity, a sense of belonging and feelings of being ‘uprooted’.

I work in an LGBT affirmative way and my practice is open to all lifestyle choices and sexual orientations.

As a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice; I am also a member of the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA) and the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA).
