About me

Life for us all is a complex collection of experiences. Some are affirming and build us up, some are challenging and bring us down while others make no sense at all and leave us feeling confused. I don't know what situations have brought you to this point in time and to be reading this profile, but I hope wherever you are in life, you find the help and support I believe everyone deserves.

I am an integrative therapist drawing from psychodynamic, person centred, and compassion focused models. This means I meet you in your current experiences while thinking about how past experiences have affected you while understanding the drives that make us respond.

I am a deeply passionate person who will meet you in whatever you have experienced through my compassionate, creative, non-judgemental and ethical approach. The time we spend together will be about you and your experiences of the world.

I have a particular interest in trauma and childhood bereavement.

I work with both adults and young people.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked therapeutically with people for over 15 years. I started working in children's palliative care with children whose siblings were unwell before working for a national childhood bereavement charity as a senior practitioner working with both adults and children following the death of an important person by suicide, accident, illness or homicide.

From here, I further qualified in Therapeutic Counselling and now my focus is on seeing clients privately in my counselling room in Gloucester as well as for the NHS and The Listening Post.

I’ve completed many courses and qualifications in working with children and young people and adults including integrative counselling, trauma, compassion focussed therapy, dialectical behaviour skills, grief and loss as well as safeguarding, equality and diversity and ethical practice. 

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.

Accredited register membership
