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)

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.
