About me

There are times in our life when wee can feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed or unfulfilled. Therapy can provide support through challenging times, or space for the exploration of patterns that cause us to feel stuck and unhappy. I offer a warm, open and non-judgemental space where we can explore your unique needs together at your own pace.

I am an integrative psychotherapist which means I employ various therapeutic models to inform my work. I believe that each person has a unique experience and therefore requires a unique style of therapy. I am completing a doctorate in counselling psychology which enables me to draw on different psychological theories to help us explore in more depth.

Finding and meeting a new therapist can be overwhelming. I offer a free telephone consultation so you can choose if you would like to meet me. I then offer an initial face-to-face assessment at a reduced fee so that you can decide if you would like us to continue our journey together.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Doctorate in Counselling Psychology & Psychotherapy (in completion). Metanoia/ Middlesex University
  • MSc Psychology Westminster

In addition to my private practice, I work as a psychotherapist with children and adults in educational and mental health settings.

I have over 15 years experience working with adults and young people as a mentor and senior tutor working with severe anxiety, depression and trauma. Alongside my role as a graduate psychologist and psychotherapist, I teach Psychology to degree level.

Member organisations


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.

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.
