About me

Hello, and thanks for checking out my profile. I am an integrative therapist, working face-to-face and online. I offer a safe, confidential space for you to explore yourself and your experiences. Perhaps you have struggled for years, or more recent experiences have brought up challenges for you. We can all find ourselves stuck in repeating patterns of feeling, thinking and behaving that developed to protect us or to allow us to cope with difficulty in the past, but which end up becoming a burden or barrier to fully living our lives in the present.

Working with awareness, together we can identify what blocks you from being where or how you want to be, and support you in developing the resources to make change, by: exploring your feelings, thoughts, behaviour and life events; supporting you to process difficult experiences and improve coping; helping you to understand yourself and others better.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an integrative therapist, drawing on theory and practice from multiple fields of counselling and therapy – particularly relational psychoanalytic therapy, and attachment/trauma-orientated approaches. My personal experience of counselling first began many years ago, and has encompassed a number of different approaches, which informed my decision to train as an integrative practitioner. I believe my own experiences of life's challenges serve as an an important element of my professional toolkit, drawing on the ancient myth of the ‘wounded healer’. 

​I hold a BACP-accredited foundation certificate and postgraduate diploma in integrative counselling from the Minster Centre, one of Europe’s leading integrative counselling and psychotherapy training institutes. I am a registered member of the BACP and have full professional indemnity insurance.

​Alongside my private practice I am a counsellor at Watford Women’s Centre, working with survivors of domestic abuse.

Member organisations

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.
