About me

I am a compassionate and experienced therapist offering a safe and non-judgemental space to help you work though any issues you are experiencing. I work with clients to provide support with anything that is negatively impacting their lives. Therapy can really help you to identify and work through issues and implement positive changes in your life. 

It can be daunting to decide to reach out for some support and confusing to decide on the right therapist for you. I want this to be as easy as possible for you and therefore I offer a free 15 minute Zoom consultation where we can discuss what is going on for you at the moment and see if we would be the right fit for one another.  The relationship between therapist and client is an important factor is facilitating change and I offer a warm and supportive environment to assist with this.

The therapeutic process can enable you to emerge as a stronger version of yourself. Sometimes just feeling heard & understood in a space that's free from pressure & judgement can be the first step in making positive changes in your life.

My aim is for you to leave counselling in a better place than you entered it, feeling more secure and better equipped to deal with any issues that come your way. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at Regents University in London and have received my Post Graduate Diploma and Foundation certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I have been trained in an integrative way which means I have experience of each of the main modalities of psychotherapy. My approach in the way I choose to work is primarily in an existential way. Aiming to help you explore your lived experience, the choices you make in life and the struggles you may be facing.

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.
