About me

Counselling can help with understanding ourselves and our difficulties better. My approach is grounded in Humanistic counselling, Gestalt therapy, EMDR therapy, and Mindful awareness. I integrate those skills to assist well-being and healing. I work with people who need therapeutic support and space to talk and help with anxiety, overwhelm, sadness, self- care, vicious self-criticism, low mood, loss of meaning, bereavement, loss, disconnection, distress, low self-confidence, depression,  phobias ,  consequences of abuse, PTSD, addictions etc. I work with Adults and young people age 12 and over. 

Being a Gestalt therapist I trust that self-awareness or deeply attuning, knowing and accepting ourselves leads to healing, health and growth. I work holistically by offering psycho education as well as embodied awareness in the context of connection to others and the community. 

My Trauma training and work with people who have experienced  trauma have thought me to work with people in a safe and gentle way.

Psychotherapy and Counselling can help by providing a safe and holding space for people to explore their thoughts, relationships, feelings and existential dilemmas. A space where we are supported through the presence of an emphatic other to work through emotional difficulties. A space where we feel heard and understood. As a therapist, I aspire to create this space by being present and available. I value a welcoming compassionate, warm and accepting stance. 

We can also use psychotherapy therapy and counselling as a space for personal discovery and growth. Getting to know our essence, ourselves. Rediscover our excitement and passions. I can work with movement, enactment, experiment and embodiment to assist this.

I believe that we can be hurt in relationships but we can also grow through healing relationships. Through the therapeutic relationship, we can explore trust, patterns of relating, power dynamic, closeness and disconnections, loneliness and connection.

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.
