About me

I am a qualified psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

I have a strong interest in working with trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and childhood abuse, and symptoms such as anxiety, depression and addictions.

How do I work?

I see therapy as a partnership and I have a person-centred approach. This means that my priority is to keep you safe and to work at a pace that you feel comfortable with. Within that safe environment, we will start to talk about the issues or feelings that have brought you into therapy.

Once we have identified the areas that are holding you back, we will work together to develop a plan to tackle whatever it is that's stopping you living the life you want.

As an emotion-focused therapist, I will help you explore the emotions that are making you feel anxious, depressed or simply stuck in your life and to understand how you can change these to enable you to feel more in control of your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA (Hons) in literature, life and thought, an MA in international politics, a PGCE in further education and a post-graduate diploma (PgDip) in psychotherapeutic practice.

I have successfully completed part 1 of the emotion-focused therapy (EFT) training by Robert Elliott, one of the founders of the EFT model. I am working towards the part 2 qualification.

Accredited register membership


My standard fee is £40 per session (a session lasts for 50 minutes).

However, I do have a certain number of spaces that I reserve for those on low incomes and these are charged on a sliding scale.

Further information

Before training as a psychotherapist I worked in different roles in the voluntary sector and in further and higher education. I have seen people who have felt defeated, undeserving and unlovable turn their lives around with the right support and encouragement. Learning self-compassion is the starting point to gaining the strength and resilience that this requires. Through EFT, I build on this foundation to help you explore past hurt or current situations which are causing you pain and/or holding you back from living the life you want.
