About me

I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist practicing in various types of therapies and interventions. I take an autonomous approach to each individual client and have the expertise to deliver person centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic therapy, attachment theory and ecotherapy.

As an integrative therapist, I believe there is not one therapeutic approach that can be used in all circumstances when helping clients. When considering an individual and their personal situation, I help by supporting clients through the use of different approaches whilst they explore their issues.

I offer a non-judgmental approach whilst placing great emphasis on the therapeutic relationship to help clients gain the most out of their therapy experience.

If it's a change in your life that you seek or a way to cope with a problem you are experiencing, I can assist you in finding your own solutions.​

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.

It can be difficult choosing the right therapist for you and making the first step can be hard, I offer a free consultation where I will ask you what issues you are looking for support with and what you would like to achieve from your therapy. You will also have the chance to ask me any questions. I believe that for therapy to be successful we must both feel comfortable so we can work together, and you can thrive.

​Initial contact - free telephone/online session (15 minutes)

When I work

Availability - I offer early morning, daytime and evening sessions, 7 days a week.

Further information

As an integrative therapist, I am trained and qualified in different types of therapy in which I will draw on techniques from various types of therapy in order to tailor the approach that will work best for you. I understand that every client will have different requirements and what will be beneficial for one person may not be valuable for others.

To meet your needs, I offer remote sessions as well as ecotherapy, so that you may choose the method that is most suitable for you.

Therapy provides you with a safe and confidential space and will allow you the time to explore what you may be struggling with.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
