About me

In my therapy room, you'll always find a safe and accepting space where you can be your authentic self without fear of judgement.

Do you struggle with low self-confidence that's holding you back at work or in your personal life? Do body image or confidence issues keep you from feeling good about yourself and enjoying fulfilling relationships? Does anxiety prevent you from taking the next step towards your goals? Are you tired of feeling overly self-critical and down on yourself? 

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, I can help. As an integrative counsellor, I specialise in helping people explore their confidence, self-criticism and anxiety issues. Together, we'll explore your current struggles as well as any past experiences that may be contributing to your challenges. We'll work to identify patterns and break them, so you can develop more self-confidence and overall well-being.

At the core of my counselling approach is the belief in self-acceptance, self-care, and showing ourselves self-compassion. I'm passionate about helping my clients accept all parts of themselves, even those parts that may cause them shame or guilt. 

I work with clients from all walks of life, dealing with a variety of issues - each unique experience is valued. 

To learn more, I offer a complimentary chat either online or in-person. Reach out, take the first step and you will be met with compassion.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Level 4 diploma in counselling and a Masters (Level 7) in counselling and psychotherapy. As part of the MA, I have studied archetypes, nature therapy and self-criticism. 

I have a private practice and work for a larger counselling organisation as well as having experience within a school setting working with young adults (12+).

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.
