About me

My client-led approach provides a safe, friendly, and non-judgemental space where you can fully explore the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that might be troubling you. I think the best therapeutic work comes from a strong therapeutic bond based on trust and unconditional positive regard and so the relationship between us will form part of our work together.

My training is integrative, which allows me to use a range of therapeutic tools that fit your individual needs and therapeutic goals. Depending on what makes sense to you, the approaches I will draw on are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic, Gestalt, and Psychodynamic. I will use these ways of working, alongside reflecting back your thinking and gently questioning, to support you through the process of self-awareness, allowing you to gain clarity and deeper understanding. I believe it is important to view each person as a whole and therefore my approach allows me to work holistically.

I have always been interested in people and so have worked in the health and social care sector since the completion of my MSc in 2011. I have worked with a many different people therapeutically, on a one-to-one level and in groups, across a variety of settings including: low secure forensic units, prisons, female only rehabs and with clients on an open-ended basis in private practice. Within these roles I have and continue to help clients with:

  • Suicidal thoughts

Before completing my British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) accredited diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy I completed a British Psychological Society (BPS) recognised BSc in Psychology and a BPS recognised MSc in Forensic Psychology.
