About me

Hello, I am a psychotherapist that offers time, empathy and respect for you to explore your feelings and understand yourself from a more helpful perspective. You will be valued for your individual difference and I will work with you to find your own pathway towards positive, lasting change. I believe in empowering people to find the answers they are looking for in life. 

I have several years experience as a private practitioner as well as working within the NHS. I provide short or long term therapy and aim to provide a professional, integrated service based upon your individual needs. I have an MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, am BACP accredited, with over 5 years’ experience of working within the NHS (IAPT) and 9 years as a private practitioner. I offer face to face, telephone and online appointments based upon the individual needs of each client.

I have a proven track record of empathising with people; utilising my skills and theory (Person-Centred, CBT and Attachment Theory) to provide clinical interventions which help people work towards meaningful, lasting change. I work with diverse clients from many different backgrounds and have experience of working with anxiety, depression, bereavement, anger management, relationship issues, panic, family issues, separation and divorce and low self-esteem to name but a few.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters in Integrative Counselling/Psychotherapy and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within the guidelines of their ethical framework. I hold a Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression license which is a recognised qualification by the NHS.

I work with a diverse range of difficulties including; anxiety, depression, anger, relationship issues, bereavement and trauma, and blend person-centred therapy, attachment and cognitive behavioural therapy to best suit each individual’s needs.

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)

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.

Accredited register membership

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
