About me

I specialise in working with clients who experience anger, anxiety, stress, depression, apathy and bereavement. In addition to talking therapies, I use creative approaches such as writing to help you express, understand and come to terms with your feelings. I also offer walking and talking in a rural environment.

I work ‘integratively’ which means I am trained to work from a variety of theoretical approaches depending on the client and their individual difficulties. I integrate different theoretical approaches including person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), gestalt, existential, transactional analysis (TA) and transpersonal. I believe we are all unique individuals and that no ‘one way’ suits us all. I work with a variety of client issues and offer both short and long-term work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I hold both PhD and Masters degrees in the field of psychology, mythology and literature, and a first-class undergraduate degree in Creative Writing. I also have professional experience in teaching and research in higher education.

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

Key details
