About me

Do you want to take control of your mental well-being and your emotions? 

Do you want to take the next step on your journey of self-awareness and self-development?

As a Psychotherapist and Psychological Coach, I am here to take you from a place of low mental health, confidence, and self-esteem, not just to a place of being able to function, but to a position of being able to thrive and enjoy your life!

Wherever you are in your journey, I am here to support you. 

Are you ready?

What is it like to work with me?
Each of my sessions is fully tailored to where my client is emotionally, what they need, and what works best for them. I’ve spent years working with clients across a range of backgrounds, who have come to therapy for support with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, and burnout, as well as complex trauma, recovering from abusive relationships, and managing personality disorders.

My style of counselling is generally a blend of traditional talking therapies with bits of psychological and life coaching. I love to share what I know with my clients, whether that’s a theory about how our brains or upbringings lead us to react in certain ways or books, podcasts, and tools that might be helpful.

Each client and each session is so unique.


I know that the process of even finding a therapist can be totally overwhelming, and you’ve probably spent countless hours scrolling through Google and various directories before getting to this point.

So, take a moment to recognise the massive steps that you’ve taken to get to this point.

Now, what happens next?

The process of starting therapy with me is pretty straightforward.

  • Send me a request using the "email me" button, or head to my website to contact me
  • We will then book a time to chat on the phone
  • During our phone call, we will talk about what you’re hoping to get out of coming to therapy and you’ll be able to ask me any questions you want about me, how I work, and/or about therapy in general.
  • If you want to work together, we would book the first session in our diaries, and go from there!

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.


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.
