About me

I specialise in Adult and Young people's therapy 16+ using EMDR

I believe everyone's journey to healing and understanding is unique, there is no other you, your identity and experiences are yours. As such, I use an integrated approach to therapy, I will meet you where you are at and bring my skills and experiences with me to aid you. I have a wealth of experience in working interculturally, processing issues of race, difference and identity

Trusting someone with your inner thoughts, feelings and experiences can be hard. We will work together in a safe, non judgemental space where you can choose what you would like to work through, at your own pace.

I can provide on-line and face to face therapy. Specialisms include: Identity, Resilience Self-Esteem, Mixed Race identity, racism and Trauma.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
