About me

As a Humanistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist, my core belief is that we, human beings, are basically healthy. However, as we go through life, we often develop patterns of thoughts, behaviours and emotions that no longer serve us as well as we would like.

I provide an open, safe and supportive space that recognises that the relationship between me and you, my client, is significant in creating conditions for growth. I work holistically with you as you are present. Together, with practice and awareness, we collaboratively explore your unhelpful patterns with the aim of developing new, more beneficial ways of being. In this way, I intend to support you in taking charge of shaping your own life and reaching your full human potential.

In my work, I draw on a variety of humanistic models, including Gestalt (working with awareness) and Formative Psychology (how we shape our experience). I also use the intuitive ideas of Beyond Chocolate when working with clients with an eating disorder.

I am also an experienced Chartered Physiotherapist and Movment Specialist (Pilates, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, Feldenkrais) and often draw on these experiences when working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, particularly when exploring the links between the physical, psychological and emotional elements of a specific issue, for example anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, depression or grief.

I am bilingual and offer sessions in English and French.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have undertaken extensive training in Humanistic Psychotherapy at Spectrum (Centre for Humanistic Psychology and Member of the UKCP) since 2009 and am continuing to develop my skills by attending the continuous professional development programme at Spectrum. I am also working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist for the NHS.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


Week days and weekends available on request.
