MSc MBACP (Accred)

About me

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.

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.
