About me

I provide a non-judgemental and safe space, giving you an opportunity for exploration, emotionally and psychologically, to determine your current state of being.

I will be supportive of your inherent ability to know your own intentions and honour this process, with the hope to assist you to gain a greater understanding of yourself, therefore increasing self-awareness. This is key to having a healthy sense of self.

As you work with the true aspects of yourself, and gain an understanding of the underlying causes of how you came to be where you are, you can progress towards learning tools of resilience, self-regulation and emotional healing, which could move you towards a more fulfilling and enjoyable life circumstance and create positive, lasting, meaningful change; something we all aspire to achieving. Even in the most hopeless feeling space, change is possible.

I enjoy using a variety of modalities to fit your individual preferences, circumstances and issues with an integrative approach, with three years of experience (including training/volunteering). Within this model I like to use the psychodynamic approach to help me to access the origin of a particular challenge/issue; cognitive behavioural therapy to assist with devising tools to address unhealthy behavioural/thinking patterns and person-centred approaches to assist with developing and remaining in a professional client-led/therapeutic relationship with you which is key to effective counselling.

I know that it takes courage to make this first step in seeking support and I appreciate the need to find the right counsellor to support you on your journey. With this in mind please feel free to contact me with any questions or enquiries, and I will endeavour to respond promptly, openly and honestly so that you are more likely to determine whether I’m the right fit for you.

  • Some of the areas I can work with you on include:
  • Turning negative relationship dynamics into positive dynamics
  • Connecting more deeply with your inner self
  • Learning to access your intuition and innate source of wisdom
  • Finding meaning and purpose in your life
  • Developing components of emotional intelligence: awareness, self-regulation, empathy
  • Understanding your emotions, and working with them, rather than against them

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.
