About me

You may be feeling down, unmotivated, anxious or angry and need a safe, impartial space to work through what's troubling you or holding you back, to find a clearer perspective on behaviour patterns and coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. I will guide and nurture you in your process so we can reflect deeply on your concerns and gain the necessary insight into your subconscious drives to discover the change that will enable you to move forward in your life and flourish as your authentic self. 

In our first free session you'll share your concerns, what brought you to therapy and what your expectations are. A good therapeutic relationship is crucial so we'll decide together if we're the right fit for your particular needs and usually agree to six sessions before reviewing our work to see how we can move forward with your process of growth and healing. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in Integrative Therapy at Mary Ward Centre in London. I have been a successful restaurateur, artist and writer and my own life challenges and my journey through personal therapy inspired me to do this rewarding work. I currently work as a volunteer counsellor at ELOP, an LGBTQ+ counselling service where I see a diverse group of clients, both individuals and couples, including trans and non-binary people, with issues around sex and sexuality. I have a decade of experience in drug and alcohol recovery as well as other process addictions like sex and porn. I also specialise in working with couples with relationship difficulties. I have facilitated group therapy work and have experience with developmental trauma and post traumatic stress.

As an integrative therapist, I respond to your individual needs and cover issues around anxiety, self-esteem, depression, trauma, sexuality, gender, sex and relationships, grief and work stress. I draw from psychodynamic, humanistic, CBT and person-centred approaches, focussing also on your somatic experience. Working in a trauma-informed way, I focus on attachment patterns and how our nervous systems link to our emotions and influence our behaviour and how we can adapt and direct these in order to grow, flourish and overcome adversity.

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.
