About me

I believe change is possible. Through working with you as the client to explore both your current issue and what lies beneath, I can help to bring both what is actually happening, and the cause into the room. It is here that transformation can take place.

How I work:
I work from an integrative and integral perspective; which means i have a broad range of tools at my disposal. All that you bring is welcome, and i will meet you in the place where you need to be met. It maybe we look at your thoughts, feelings, or behaviour but most likely a combination of all, and all with in the context of your physical self, your relationships, and the environment you live in.

The space i provide is primarily a warm welcoming space where you will not be judged, where you will be supported to make the changes you wish to make, and where what you say remains confidential in line with the BACP code of ethics. And where we can practice the art of relating between individuals in a honest and authentic way.

Group sessions:
This is also available in a group setting, a safe place for you to be in relationship to others, where i facilitate to keep the space safe and relevant, where you can try out new ways of being with others in a group environment. See http://solacegrouptherapy.wordpress.com for more details.

Reading this is the first step to making the changes you wish to make. Well done for getting this far. I look forward to meeting you, and setting out on this journey together.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
