About me


I offer a warm and welcoming space to explore ones difficulties. I work to encourage and process emotions that aid in positive change and growth as well as nurture self-awareness. I also believe that it is important to build trusting relationships and promote autonomy with my clients. I worked in the private and the volunteering sector, helping clients with childhood traumas, grief, stress, work related stress, anxiety and sexual abuse. 

Feeling freedom and moral independence enables us to make better choice in our lives. All through my own therapeutic journey and training I understood that the toll of our past experiences might manifest in feeling depressed, anxious, stressed or even angry.  You might experience bodily discomfort or unexplained pains or headaches. You might even hold resentments and anger that might hold you back from experiencing life in full. To aid in your healing journey I carefully select tools that will help you identify your patterns that might no longer be useful and stop you from living life in full. 

To reach out for support might feel at first daunting, I would be privileged to work with you and provide emotional, non-judgmental support. We work together where we take each session at your own pace enabling you to explore your feelings. The sessions are 50mins long either online or face-to-face. The initial session is free on phone or online.   

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Gestalt counsellor and member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ) and I have a good understanding of the ethical framework. My skills are compassionate listening, commitment to confidentiality, strong sense of integrity and strong professional boundaries. I worked in the private and the volunteering sector. 

Member organisations

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.
