About me

My therapeutic approach endeavours to help ease emotional pain as well as supporting clients in working towards living a more fulfilled and rewarding life.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor which means I embrace many models and skills that help me to adapt my approach to suit the individual needs of each client. The models I use include Person Centred/Humanistic and Psychodynamic theories.

In my practice, I support clients to understand the cycle of behaviour patterns in their lives which cause distress, and help facilitate insight into the roots of their thinking, self beliefs and behaviours.  I believe past experiences significantly inform and shape our internal structures and affect how we think and feel about ourselves and how we relate to others.

About Therapy

Psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential space so that personal difficulties can be gently unfolded and understood at a pace that you set.  Each session is an opportunity to feel truly seen and heard in a way that can be deeply healing. This allows themes to surface and a shift towards coming to terms with any problems you are facing.  This guides us to set achievable aims for therapy and to be aware of possible difficulties during this process of self discovery.

In my experience, holding onto painful feelings and emotions is far more damaging than learning how to express, process and find freedom from psychological blocks.  Healing requires understanding your pain with compassion and replacing this with knowledge, new behavioural tools and a new direction in life.

An initial appointment provides an opportunity for us to explore whether therapy might be helpful to you.  There is no obligation to commit at this stage to on-going work, however if you decide you would like to continue, we agree upon regular days and times to meet on either a short-term or on-going basis in order to facilitate and give momentum to the therapeutic process. Regular contact provides a sense of security and continuity whilst you are engaged in therapy.

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.

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.
