About me

I am an Integrative Therapist working with clients on an individual or couple basis in person and online.

My work focuses on empowering you to make the changes you want, in order to live as your true, happiest self.

If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, low self-confidence/ low self-esteem, or trauma / PTSD or family issues, there is an alternative to feeling sad, alone, hopeless and unheard. Through therapy you can:

  • Build emotional resilience & self-esteem
  • Heal from unprocessed trauma
  • Improve your self-care and self- compassion
  • Identify and change destructive patterns in relationships
  • Let go of destructive coping mechanisms such as substance misuse
  • Learn how to quieten your critical voice
  • Understand how the past is affecting you, and how you can move forwards in life
  • Overcome mental health difficulties and create a joyful and happy life

I offer a conversational, compassionate and holistic way of working and am able to support you in navigating your way through healing and recovery. I will offer psycho-education to help you identify behavioural patterns that are keeping you stuck in life, and together we'll find a way forward. Please read my client testimonials to get more of a feel about how I work.

I work with a wide range of issues but I do specialise in eating disorders, body dysmorphia, disordered eating, self-esteem and confidence issues and body image insecurities.

Perhaps you have recently had (or are waiting for) an ADHD or autism diagnoses and feel a little lost with how to move forward into a new chapter with this? I am experienced in working with neurodiversity and encourage you to get in touch to explore this further together.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

Client Testimonials

"Working with Beth has restored my faith in therapy. Her kind, understanding and compassionate approach has helped me to start treating myself with more compassion as well. From the very beginning, Beth established a safe space for me to talk about my feelings, whilst also helping me with practical tools to see the change I want to see in my life."

"Working with Beth has had a massive positive impact on all areas of my life. I felt completely heard and understood by her every step of the way, and I loved her approach in sessions, her technique is adaptive to what will work for you. She is incredibly warm and supportive especially when you're tackling the more challenging things, patient while you're untangling your thoughts, and she has a great sense of what really lies at the root of what you're saying, and guides you to realise what that is for yourself. She helped me transform my view of myself, and taught me how to cut through my self doubt and self criticism to see myself as I really am. Sessions with Beth helped me navigate some difficult life events in a way that has made me feel stronger than ever, and feeling like I am exactly where I need to be in my life. I really can't recommend her enough."

“Beth is incredible and has changed my life - massively. I am so grateful for all the support she has given me. I know and appreciate I have put the work in, but Beth has been an amazing guide. Beth has given me the tools in life for me to believe in myself, own my past, realise I am worthy and most importantly all these changes have made me happier. Everyone around me has also noticed this positive change. I do not think I can express all my gratitude in words properly, but I am so thankful.”

"Beth came into my life when I really needed her and her approach has been perfect for me. I have changed in so many ways and she has inspired me as a client and as a professional. I shared with her things I never thought I would say out loud, I made connections I never thought existed and I have progressed and grown so much. She has such a varied technique and adapted to my needs over time, she has listened, remembered and truly cared. She has provided a person centred approach and worked with so many of my different goals as they changed. She was not phased by me bringing different issues and requests, she was adaptable and comfortable working with the unknown. I have had different counsellors in the past and wanted more input in sessions and this is something she offered. I felt like we were a team. I am so thankful and feel emotional that it is over.. but like she has said I am learning to be my own therapist. "

"I am deeply grateful to Beth. It was through her care that I built the confidence to make braver decisions in my life. Beth created such a warm, accepting space that right from the beginning, I felt comfortable and incredibly listened to. Each week I looked forward to our sessions, where Beth shared countless tools and ideas, helping me to live my life differently. Beth’s perceptive, personal touch is a true skill, leaving my mind a far kinder and more compassionate place. I honestly could not recommend Beth enough."

"I worked with Beth for just over a year, in that year I learned so much about myself and felt like I dove into things within me that I didn't even know were there.Beth held my hand through this and helped me to realise my full potential as a human being. I am proud of myself for the hard work that got me where I am today, and though I’m not 100% where I would like to be, I am so far from where I was. I owe my recovery to myself yes, but without Beth’s warmth, guidance and support I’m not sure I’d be where I am today."
