About me

Welcome to my profile.

I am an experienced integrative therapist who specialises in the field of unresolved loss, grief and trauma within an NHS Environment as well as in private practice. I specialise within EMDR to treat single and complex post-traumatic stress (PTSD) amongst the many other challenges we experience in life.

In my practice, I provide a compassionate, empathetic client-led approach combined with evidence based interventions such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to support my clients through life’s challenges.

As human beings we all go through times that challenge our own natural resources, this might be as a result of trauma, loss, relationship breakdowns.

Particularly now more than ever, I am working with people who require support as a result of daily stresses which for many Covid-19 has compounded.

Please don't hesitate to get in contact if you wish to arrange a free introductory session to meet with me (virtually) and have the opportunity to see whether you feel I am someone you can relate to, as well as giving me an opportunity to understand the difficulties in which you would like help with. We can then create a plan of support together.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
