I am an experienced counsellor, my aim is to meet people where they are at and provide a space for growth and healing to take place. My counselling is based in integrative practice; using different models of counselling to address the clients individual needs I aim to build a relationship of trust with my client through which change can happen.
Currently many of my clients are students who need a space to help them manage their feelings and anxiety about University, relationships and sometimes trauma from the past. I regularly see medical students as part of my practice and have developed an understanding of the skills, reflexivity and demands on this particular student group.
I also work with women who are struggling with issues surrounding pregnancy, birth and parenting. Often we discover together that it also means reflecting on work and relationships both in the present and past. This is empowering, challenging and moving work which is sometimes hard but can be very rewarding and healing for the client. Some of my clients are women who want to explore their identity in relation to work, family and home life. Currently much of this practice is with women who work as clinicians either as GP's or in hospital settings.

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.
