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 am also in training to be a Doctor of Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy.
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.

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.
