As a humanistic therapist I'm on your side, I've got your back. Together we'll explore how you got to where you are now. I'll encourage you to let go of what's holding you back, be it fear, guilt, shame, to help you move on with your life.
If you are nervous about seeking help then I am the therapist for you. Compassion and understanding are at the core of my practice.
Fees are £45 per session, £25 for an initial consultation.
We can start with 6 weekly sessions with the option to carry on for as long as you would like.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), this provides me with a water-tight ethical framework to work by.
I've been working as a therapist for about 6 years and have worked with lots of clients with a range of presenting issues. See the issues I work with below.

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
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).
