When you come to therapy, you may feel that your ways of coping are no longer working for you. You may be experiencing vague dissatisfaction or a desire for something more in your life. You could be feeling anxiety about the future or pain from past events. Whatever you are currently experiencing, coming to therapy is a brave step. I want to meet you where you are and welcome what you bring.
In psychotherapy, we will try to create space where it is safe for us to explore your experience in order to discover what is happening for you and how you may be getting stuck. By doing this we can begin to create more choices for you to move forward.

I am a full clinical member of the professional body UKCP and abide by their code of ethics.
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.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
It is important to me that you find the right therapist for you. To see if we are a good fit for each other and answer any questions about the process you may have, I offer a free assessment session in which we can explore your reasons for coming to therapy and give you a sense of working with me.
Sessions are £65 per hour.
