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.  Finding the right words can be difficult, but by working together I can help find these and explore the feelings that can arise . Though therapy is a serious process often filled with high emotions, I believe at times there can be space for fun and humour.

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 commence 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.

I have lots of experience working 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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Before 1st meeting I encourage a brief 20 minute conversation (free of charge) for you to outline to me what it is you would like to work on through therapy and tell me a little about you.  This allows you to decide if I am the right person for you to reach your therapeutic goals.  I can also make sure I have the right skills to give you the best and most effective treatment.
