About me

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist. This means that I am qualified to combine different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the person. I offer a warm, empathetic and non-judgemental environment. 

I am interested in talking to you about who you are, what is troubling you. Whatever life problems you bring to therapy, I aim to help you use your own experience to find a way forward. 

I believe the therapeutic relationship is a vital part of therapy and that it's important to find a therapist that you can feel you can relate to.

A free initial session of 30 minutes is offered to talk to me and discuss any thing. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
