I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor (BA Hons - Integrative Relational Counselling) providing short and long-term online individual counselling.
As an integrative counsellor, I use several approaches to best meet your individual needs. I aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment so as to encourage you to freely express your feelings and thoughts, a place to be truly heard.
As a relational counsellor, I understand most emotional injuries happen in relation – which is why the therapeutic relation between you and I can become the vehicle for exploring past hurt and also find new ways to integrate these experiences in a way that supports and benefits you.
I will work at your own pace, where I don’t believe change can be forced but that once you look honestly and compassionately at where you are at, it invariably follows.
I understand that the therapeutic process can be challenging and I encourage you to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and safe.
If you decide this is the right time for you to reach out, I am here to listen to you and help you find the best way forward. We would start with an initial assessment session, where we will discuss what brought you to me. This will also be an opportunity for you to get a sense of me as a practitioner and for us to see if we would like to start working together.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
