About me

I am a fully qualified and accredited Integrative Psychotherapist with experience working with a diverse range of individuals. Being integrative means I work by combining and integrating different techniques and approaches so that I can tailor the therapy to suit your individual needs.

It is a courageous step to reach out when life feels challenging, you can trust that within our therapy it will be at your pace, with a focus on 'we' working together, rather than 'you' on your own, in a safe and non-judgmental space.

My commitment is to support you from the moment we meet; to be dedicated to our work together, transparent about how I am working with you and give you the opportunity to express yourself freely. Through the process my aim is for you to gain confidence, personal insight, growth and empowerment to make the changes you need to move forward in your life.

I work around you whether that means short term or longer term therapy. However, I encourage clients to meet for a 6 week period, before committing to longer term therapy to ensure you feel it is right for you.

If you are interested in beginning therapy please drop me an email and I will send you further details about an initial meeting.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.
