About me

Hello & Welcome to My Page.

"Finding a therapist can be a daunting and overwhelming process, when we are already feeling stuck, unsure or desperate to find a space/person that we can fully trust and feel comfortable with.
This is why I offer a free, no obligation, initial consultation to see how we connect before our first session. I hope through this phone call you will be able to see how my personal philosophy and passion for people and psychotherapy, will reflect in the work we embark on together."

Mental Health, Therapy & Well Being have thankfully been given the spotlight in recent times through social media, press and influential people sharing their journeys, normalising the need to talk and express our internal world. However when it comes to our OWN unique life experiences, it can be difficult to know where to begin and what to begin with.  

We frequently use the terms 'anxiety' and 'depression' to describe challenging emotions and experiences that we have in daily life; these challenging emotions and the way they affect our lives are unique to every person and need to be explored in your unique context.

Together we can look at how your life experiences, relationships, behavioural patterns, cyclical thoughts, stuckness, affect you. Where these feelings may have originated and work towards ways of understanding them to hopefully loosen the grip that they have on your life.

I like to use not only words but imagery, metaphor, drawing, whatever creative ways feel right for you to curiously explore, tease out and understand the meaning behind what you are feeling. 

I believe that we all have the capacity to grow and discover more about ourselves and the way we experience our lives. Through exploring your story together, we can unearth awareness of how you are living your life. How past events may still be having an impact on your present and subsequently your future, and together begin to process and heal these areas in order for you to build emotional resilience and a deep understanding and connection to yourself.

Through gaining an understanding of who we are, reasons behind the way we react to situations and relationships in our lives, we can become more resilient to the changes and challenges life inevitably brings.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.

Please let me know if you need flat access for Face to Face sessions and I will endeavour to accommodate this.
