About me

People come to therapy for many different reasons; whatever your reason, therapy is a unique experience. It can offer you an environment where you begin to make sense of your experiences, both past and present, and discover how you feel about them.

I like to create a space that is both safe and supportive and work collaboratively with my clients. Together we explore what has brought you to therapy, talk about what you’re going through and begin to make sense of how things are for you. Talking together allows us to consider different perspectives, other choices that might be available to you.

There’s no agenda, no assumption or judgement on what you want to talk about. Sometimes the process is challenging, but as we begin to make sense of things, we can explore ways that will help you to move forward in your life.

I am an integrative therapist who draws on the approaches of psychodynamic and humanistic theories. This means we are able to explore patterns of behaviour that may have possible links to the past alongside what is happening in your life in the here and now.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the BACP and hold an MA in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy.

I also have an MPhil in Conflict Management.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
