About me

I know how daunting and anxiety provoking the prospect of starting therapy can be. By finding yourself here you have recognised that there may be areas in your life you would like to address. Recognising this is the biggest step of the therapeutic process.

I am an integrative therapist believing that one style of therapy does not suit everyone; we all need different things at different points in our lives depending on our situation and struggles. Therapy is about finding a way to express yourself and communicate feelings; I understand that for some finding the right words can be difficult, and therefore sometimes I will use art to help the person communicate their feelings. Though therapy is a serious process though I believe at times there can be space for fun and humour.

I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of issues and diagnoses including: abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, identity, relationship or work problems, bipolar and personality disorders.

Everyone deserves to be heard. I seek to support and work collaboratively to enable you to develop a better awareness of yourself and your relationships with others.

Whatever your reason for deciding to commit to therapy I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore issues and experiences that are important or difficult. By sharing experiences, voicing feelings and working with me, I work to help you through both the difficult and “eureka” moments of therapy to empower you to make positive changes to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

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.
