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 and then review our work to see if and how we 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 and 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 use Attachment, Internal Family Systems and Polyvagal Theories in focussing on 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 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.
