About me

I am a fully qualified and BACP registered Integrative Psychotherapist, Counsellor & Coach. I provide tailored therapy to suit your individual needs.

As an integrative practitioner, I appreciate that each client is unique, therefore one approach does not work for all. As well as more traditional methods, I use a variety of innovative, personalised approaches to create long-lasting change in your life. My aim is to help you gain back control and put yourself in the driving seat of your life once again. By focusing on experiences and behaviours, I will identify opportunities to learn from the past, look forward, and arm yourself with the unique tools required to tackle them head on. I’m here to help you achieve your goals and make meaningful changes to your life in a safe and confidential environment.

If you have never had therapy before, it can be difficult to know what to expect or what to even look for. We all encounter difficulties in our lives however, and it may be beneficial to simply talk things over with someone who listens impartially. The first step is often the hardest, as the number of different therapeutic approaches can feel daunting and confusing. This is where I come in, as it is my job to figure out what is the best approach for you.

What's next?

I understand it takes courage to reach out, so to make it as simple as possible, please drop me an email, or give me a call, and I will be in touch as soon as possible to answer any questions, nothing is too small. We'll start by having a brief chat about what you're looking for from counselling, and how I can best support you. Then if you are happy and decide to move forward, we will arrange our first session together either in person, online or by phone.

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.

Accessibility

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.
