About me

I am a person centered and psychodynamic counsellor incorporating CBT and solution focused techniques. I work a lot with the unconscious mind; 95 percent of brain activity is beyond our conscious awareness, so it's helpful to delve into the root of our problems that may be hidden from our consciousness. I work creatively with adults, young people and children using art therapy, guided visualisations and stone work to make the therapy experience less intimidating. I teach mindfulness, help people grow in personal development and overcoming past traumas.

I offer a non-judgemental, creative space for clients. I help clients become aware of the mind/body communication system which helps traumas. I offer ways to change the feelings connected to the memories and develop a much greater awareness of the psyche. I offer coping mechanisms and mindfulness teachings to take away practical skills.

I specialise in couples and individuals. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Integrative counselling, I offer psychodynamic and person centered talking therapy with CBT techniques. I am trained in guided imagery and visualisations for therapeutic change. I am trained in mindfulness and somatic experiencing.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
