About me

Perhaps you are here because you are feeling anxious, stressed, or simply finding life too overwhelming. You may be feeling like something needs to change, but you don't know where to start. ​Perhaps all you need right now is a space to pause and reflect, or set goals and stay accountable.

I work with adults experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, emotional dysregulation, low self-esteem, difficult family dynamics, attachment issues, lack of motivation, sadness, trauma and other challenges.

I help my clients by providing a space for them to be heard. I listen to them with an open heart, empathy and compassion. Change happens when clients realise they can open their hearts and be empathic and compassionate towards themselves too. 

Therapy helps clients become more self aware and learn new strategies to gain a better quality of life and a deeper understanding of themselves.

My approach

I am an integrative counselling psychotherapist and trained career and personal development coach.

As an integrative psychotherapist I use different tools to work with you according to your needs. I don't solely subscribe to a single specific school of therapy and take different elements of psychodynamic, person centred and other humanistic approaches. ​

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include a Graduate Certificate in Humanistic and Psychodynamic Counselling and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I also have a BA (Hons) in Sociology with Women’s Studies and a Master’s Degree in Career Coaching.

I am a registered member (393760) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and abide by their ethical framework.

I engaged periodically in continuous professional development to ensure my skills and knowledge are up to date.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

What's next?

Finding the right therapist is important and I offer a free 15 minute introductory call to give you an opportunity to discuss how we might work together. Please feel free to email me directly or use the 'book intro call' feature.

You can also email me to set up an initial session; you can tell me what brings you to seek counselling and what you want to get from it and I will respond to you within 24 hours.

Our first session will be online and last 60 minutes. This will involve an assessment to help me understand your needs, discuss your preferences and help you decide if I am the right therapist for you.

If you are happy to continue, we will have a second session and arrange to meet weekly, online or in my consulting room.
