About me

I offer face-to-face therapy in Birmingham, adapted to suit your needs.

I’m here to support people in their time of need. Whether you’re struggling with your mental health, your emotions, or your relationships, I can provide a space for you to talk. I work with a wide range of issues as I see everyone as a whole person, more than just a diagnosis or label.

The style of therapy I use works with people holistically: exploring thoughts, feelings, actions and beliefs all placed within the broader context at the time. This style is for anyone who is new to trying therapy, anyone who may have had CBT or other NHS based treatment and found it useful but brief, anyone who has had previous therapy but is looking to work with someone new.

I believe in the power of therapy for change and growth, and look forward to the opportunity to be a part of that with others.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have developed my approach to therapy through training, personal experience, and professional practice. I have combined four years of masters training in Integrative Psychotherapy with three years of practice at St Martin’s Counselling and Psychotherapy in the centre of Birmingham. This is where I have adapted my style to be dynamic and flexible with each individual I meet, and where my personal exploration has allowed me to better know what I bring to the therapeutic relationship. I have worked with people covering a broad range of topics including depression, anxiety, sexuality, addiction, relationship problems, self esteem, and more.

Prior to being a counsellor, I worked in a psychiatric unit specialising in eating disorder treatment. This gave me a knowledge of mental health in a clinical, hospital setting, which has informed my perspective of valuing the complexity of every individual and the need for a holistic approach to wellbeing.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

There are 2 steps between the lift and my room. Ask me about accessible room options.
