I am a naturally warm and friendly Psychotherapist with an understanding and empathic nature. I possess a deep passion and commitment towards supporting you on your journey towards reaching your goals for the future. I recognise that the initial stages of therapy can be daunting and difficult for many which is why I offer a safe, non-judgemental space to explore thoughts and feelings, and the reasons for you accessing therapy. The relationship in which we build is extremely important in the therapy process and I will focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship as a foundation for the work that we do together.
Over the past 6 years, I have worked alongside many individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds. The belief that you are the expert in your life underpins the work I offer. This is why I work as an Integrative Psychotherapist allowing my work with you to be tailored towards your individual needs.
When you contact me we can discuss your reasons for accessing therapy at this time and how we could work together. Once you have decided if you would like to go ahead, we can arrange our first session which is an opportunity for us to meet one another, complete an assessment form and go over our contract together, and decide how we will progress forward.

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.
