About me

I work as an integrative psychotherapist providing therapy in a friendly and supportive environment. My approach is psychodynamic, focusing on understanding unconscious processes. I believe in healing the whole person which includes mind, body and spirit.

It was the experience of having been a client myself and seen how much I gained from my own therapy, that inspired me to train and qualify as a psychotherapist. Even though making that first step is hard, it is undeniably a step towards healing. I will work with you and support you with an open mind, warmth and understanding as you heal, change and grow.

I can offer help with the following:

  • depression
  • anger management
  • anxiety and stress
  • cultural issues
  • personal development
  • relationships
  • self-esteem
  • abuse
  • trauma
  • bereavement
  • sleep problems
  • Jungian dream analysis
  • play therapy (children).

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters degree in psychotherapy and healing and I am a registered member with the BACP.

I hold private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist
with both adults and children.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
