About me

Life can be a struggle challenging and confusing. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk openly to the people in your life.

As an experienced psychotherapist I provide a safe, confidential space to explore whatever is on your mind.

I can support you in finding your way through the difficulties you’re experiencing, or have experienced in the past, in a way that feels right for you, and at a pace that feels comfortable.

We can work together to make sense of what you’re thinking, feeling and going through, allowing you to develop a sense of healing, establish goals and grow towards them, and gain a greater understanding of yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Psychotherapist, certified in Integrative Counselling. This means I can work in a variety of ways depending on your needs, using my expertise in different approaches, including Clarkson, Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Gestalt, and the Transpersonal. You may have heard of some of these ways of working in therapy before, but don’t worry if you haven’t, what really matters is how you feel throughout our work together. Together we will find a way that suits you.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and follow their Ethical Framework and policies.

I help clients with a variety of concerns and challenges, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Past difficulties in early life
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low self-confidence
  • Feeling sad
  • Betrayal
  • Divorce / Separation
  • Affairs
  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Abuse
  • Sense of identity
  • Feeling stuck
  • Loneliness
  • Sexuality
  • Self harm

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.

Contact me to book a free 20 minute call, this allows me to begin to understand what you are currently going through, where you would like to make changes in your life and see if I’m the right therapist to help you.

Currently I am holding all sessions online via Zoom and by phone with some face to face sessions available.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
