About me

I work with people of all ages and have extensive experience of working with children, young people, adults and older adults. I offer a warm, safe and empathic space to allow clients to explore whatever may be going on and will listen without any judgement to help empower people to work through any challenges or difficult experiences.

I am trained to work as both a psychotherapist and a psychologist. This means I have had extensive counselling and academic training at Master's level and use a pluralistic approach with my clients. This means that I prioritise the clients unique and individual experience and can work in the most appropriate way to help. My training includes person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), existential and creative therapeutic approaches.

I have particular interest in anxiety and how it affects people at any age. My current research interests are around mental health in the workplace and how in-session movement supports children and young people therapeutically. Currently, I'm working towards my practitioner status as a counselling psychologist which includes chartership of the British Psychological Society and membership of the Health Care Professionals Council.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).

I am registered with Vitality Health Insurance and CIGNA.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I work on the first floor of a public office which has step-free access and a lift.

Availability

I have some availability for face to face and online appointments. Please get in touch if you would like to have an initial 15 minute call to discuss.
