About me

My approach to mental health is that it needs to be tailored to each individual. I work by listening to what has been going on in your life and what you're wanting to improve for yourself; we then work together to find the best approach for you and your needs. I believe therapy can not be looked at through a 'one size fits all' lens. I specialise in self-esteem work, anxieties and depression and believe that often by looking back into our upbringing and our life experiences, can we gain a better understanding of where we are today.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to bring whatever you need to into the room. I work integratively using my background in the Person-centred approach, transactional analysis, CBT, Psychodynamic and narrative therapy to tailor an approach that feels right for you.

I am an extremely open-minded therapist and have worked with a large variety of issues. I hope with me you will find a space to speak freely in a non-judgmental environment, to feel heard and to feel able to move forward together in your mental health journey.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
