About me

I am a fully qualified MBACP (Accred) registered integrative psychotherapist offering psychotherapy and counselling with over 14 years of experience, working across private practice, NHS and charitable organisations.

At times we can become stuck in life patterns and routine, which no longer serve us purpose and consequently cause unbalance, distress and a sense of overwhelm. Life can throw us curve balls, leaving us feeling like we are sinking in the unmanageable and we can all too often avoid our deepest fears and consequently our pain, which causes such unbalance and confusion.

I provide a confidential space to help identify reoccurring emotional patterns that prove problematic and unhelpful. Exploring how these difficulties impact on current life style, relationships and emotional well-being, helping you to reconnect with your true self and life purpose.

My  therapeutic process is rooted in humanistic, relational and existential approaches of psychotherapy. I also offers evidence based, psycho-educational solutions of cognitive behavioural therapy for people suffering with a wide range of common mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and/or generalised anxiety disorder. 

I hold valid health insurance with Towergate professionals.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

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.
