I offer acceptance, respect, and a safe, confidential place for you to be heard, and to figure out answers to the questions and problems you’re struggling to cope with.
I will accept you for who you are; meet you where you’re at, and support you in getting to where you want to be, providing you with the skills and insight to continue to do so yourself.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I can mould your therapy according to your own unique needs and preferences. I will work collaboratively with you in line with your expressed wishes for therapy, which can be revisited and reassessed as time goes on.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, combining CBT, Attachment Theory and Person Centred Therapy, among other approaches.
After years of working on the ground to support people in many different walks of life: schools, homeless charities, mental health charities, women’s charities, and in private psycho-therapeutic practice, my experience includes working with young people with behavioural difficulties, children growing up amidst gangland violence, adults going through alcohol rehab programmes, and homeless adults in supported housing, also those with mental health difficulties such as paranoid schizophrenia, bipolar, bpd and others.
I have particular experience in working with those coping with the aftermath of childhood abuse, as well as those who struggle within difficult relationships or have a hard time trusting and developing their own decision-making abilities, managing emotions, stress levels, intrusive thoughts, and unwanted habits.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
