About me

I can provide you with a safe, confidential and secure environment to slow down and take a look within. A place to reflect on and talk about your past, present and future. I am an experienced BACP registered counsellor and my approach is thoughtful, warm and empathic.

You might be searching for help with anxiety,  addiction, trauma, depression, low self-esteem,  panic attacks,  relationship/family issues or feeling sad. Whatever it is that has brought you here at this time, I believe that although we cannot change what has happened, it’s possible to see events and ourselves differently; no longer being controlled by the past but instead using it as a means of understanding compassionately why the present might look or feel as it does. From here, together, we can explore how the future could be different for you.

How I Work

I am an integrative therapist, this means that I do not subscribe to one way of thinking and am instead trained and skilled in a variety of different psychological theories within counselling and psychotherapy. I believe that every person is unique and hold the utmost respect for individuality, as such, I will work with you collaboratively and relationally, to form the most suitable approach to support you.

Practice Description

I offer short term, long term and open ended counselling.

Sessions are 50 minutes in length, weekly and at the same time.

I am able to provide face to face, online (Zoom) and telephone counselling.

Initial Consultation

I hold that it is fundamentally important to find the right therapist for you. I therefore offer a free, 15 minute, no obligation initial phone consultation. This first contact is for us to talk through any questions or concerns you might have, explore what has brought you to make contact at this time and for you to gain a sense of how I work and if there is a good fit.

Training, qualifications & experience

Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute.

MSc Integrative Psychotherapy, Metanoia Institute (ongoing)

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.
