About me

Sometimes we realise that we are repeating patterns in our lives that are not particularly helpful, but we can't seem to find a way to break them. Or we can become stuck, feeling like something is blocked, and we don't know how to clear the way through.

Whether there is a specific problem, such as a bereavement, difficulties within a relationship or perhaps a more general feeling that life isn't turning out quite how you had hoped, counselling can allow you to see things clearly, sometimes for the very first time.

Just feeling really heard and seen can in itself be significantly powerful.

Exploring the journey that we have made so far can enable us to cope better with the challenges that lie ahead.

Making the first move to contact a counsellor can feel like a difficult task, but it can also be the first step towards embarking on a fulfilling journey.

I am a psychodynamically trained counsellor, a registered member of the BACP and I abide by the BACP (British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling) code of ethics.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working as a therapist in various educational settings as well as running my private practice since 2009. As a consequence, I have a wealth of experience of working with many issues that affect young people, as well as parenting, relationship and family issues. I welcome clients of all ages and backgrounds, genders, sexuality and who identify as non-heteronormative.

I offer supervision to fully qualified therapists, as well as to trainees on BACP or UKCP accredited courses.   

I run psychoeducational workshops for pastoral staff in schools.

I write an advice column for Bella Magazine.

Member organisations

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
