About me

It can be hard to understand our emotions, and know how we feel about them. If you feel like you need someone to talk to, I’m here to help. I aim to provide a space to allow you to process these emotions, and work through them. What you bring to each session will be discussed confidentially and free of judgement. 

I have over 2 years of experience working as a therapist, both professionally and as a volunteer. I have volunteered for Community Care & Wellbeing Service (CCAWS) and Vision Support charities. At CCAWS and Vision Support I worked with a wide range of clients in vulnerable life situations. I learnt how important it is to empower people to have control over their lives again. 

If you choose to start sessions with me, I will aim to help you identify your difficulties, develop your understanding, and utilise your own ability to help yourself. 

During sessions, I will use an integrative therapy approach. This is to make sure my practice adapts to my client’s needs; valuing them as an individual. It will involve a person-centred foundation, and may use techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness. 

Since the pandemic, counselling has changed to include a greater focus on remote therapy. During this time I saw how helpful video call or telephone therapy could be for some clients. That is why I’m eager to offer both in-person and remote therapy sessions.

Whether you would like to start therapy, or have more questions, please feel free to contact me. I offer a free online/phone consultation, where we will talk about whether therapy is right for you at this time, and if so arrange a first session.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
