About me

Hello, I am a professionally qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I provide a safe, caring and confidential space, working therapeutically with people on a wide range of experiences and issues, past or present. 

My aim is to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings and build an inner confidence to make decisions or changes in how you live your life. Enhancing your self-esteem and providing emotional support are both integral in our work together to enable you to access your inner resources and gain a greater sense of your true potential. 

I work within a person-centred approach, which means building a collaborative therapeutic relationship which is genuine and respectful. I listen with empathy and acceptance and, depending on your needs, use a variety of therapeutic techniques and strategies from other modalities such as cognitive behavioural, solution-focused and psychodynamic therapies.

I have worked with clients from a wide range of social contexts with diverse issues which include: anxiety and depression; bereavement, including death by suicide; suicidal thoughts; trauma; eating disorders; self-harm; sexuality and gender identity. 

Teenagers and Young Adults

With over 20 years’ experience of teaching in the sixth form sector, I know how managing the demands of academic life and navigating social situations can be challenging for many young people. Younger clients usually prefer a more proactive approach to therapy compared to my adult clients such as  looking at how to make decisions and resolve problems and developing skills to help with coping abilities. 

Counselling is a unique experience to connect with another person who will listen with intent and sincerity and it is important that you find the right therapist for you. Please feel free to get in touch via email or phone. If I’m unable to answer your call, I’ll aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

Thank you.

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.
