You have taken the first step towards making a change in your life.
I am a psychotherapist with over 15 years of clinical experience working in both in and outpatient services. I treat all major mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, phobias, work/home related stresses, bereavement and addiction.
My specialisation and passion lie in the field of disordered eating, body dysmorphia and eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder, compulsive eating). It is generally assumed that eating is natural but for someone struggling with disordered eating nothing could be further from the truth. It is my beliefe that food is the symptom but not the cause. I aim to help you through the emotional maze that has led you to this point, so that you can enjoy a healthy relationship with food, your body and yourself.
I work from an integrative humanistic perspective, which focuses on the ‘here and now’ experience of the person. The goal of counselling is to achieve greater self-awareness and encourage the client to take greater responsibility for their lives. These changes are facilitated within a therapeutic relationship which is non-judgemental and accepting of the client’s world.
I work with adolescents, adults, couples and families

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
