About me

I am a qualified integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with adults who need support with negotiating a range of issues. I have training in Person Centred Counselling, Body Psychotherapy, Attachment-Based therapy, Psychodynamic therapy and CBT and have experience working with clients over a number of years from a range of backgrounds.

I have worked extensively with bereavement and loss, both privately and within the NHS.

My first therapy training was at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. I have an advanced diploma/MA in integrative counselling and psychotherapy from the Minster Centre in London, one of the UK's leading training institutions for contemporary integrative practice.

I work collaboratively to help you gain insight and awareness into what might be the blocks to living life how you would like to, and help identify your own resources for growth and greater connection with yourself and others.

My approach to therapy is relational. I view the relationship between therapist and client as a vital aid to growth and self-discovery, so that we may work together to uncover your innate resources and notice where there might be blocks to building healthy relationships, to yourself and others.

I honour and celebrate difference and diversity in background, culture, spirituality and sexuality, and strive to create a space where you feel open to explore parts of self that have been hidden, and perhaps feel unacceptable.

I have a keen interest in the healing potential that comes with growing plants and spending time in nature, and I’m acutely aware of our shared ecological crisis and the affect it has on all of us, consciously and unconsciously.

Getting Started

I recommend starting with an exploratory session so that we can talk about what you'd like to get from therapy. If we're both happy to continue we can arrange further sessions.

I usually work and in an open ended way, though sometimes a shorter period of counselling is appropriate. We can consider this option if a more solution-based approach is needed instead of a longer exploration of deep-seated issues.

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.
