About me

As a therapist, I offer you a place where we can reflect on what is happening for you and why. It is a space where you can be vulnerable, you can grieve, express your anger or explore your anxieties. Working compassionately, I will support you to find ways in which you can make sense of your world, and work towards a place of more fulfilment and freedom in your life and your choices. 

There are countless reasons why you might be looking through this website at the moment. There may be a particular issue in the present day that you wish to address, such as your relationships, bereavement, addictions or depression. Or, you might feel haunted by unresolved issues from your past such as trauma, abuse or childhood experiences. Perhaps it is hard to name what is troubling you, yet you feel overwhelmed, or that your life is lacking meaning and purpose and it is hard to find any enjoyment.

Even if you have a strong network of support, at times it can feel easier to talk about certain issues with somebody impartial and not connected to you or your family and friends.

Do get in touch for a free 15 minute phone conversation to see if I am able to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • MA, Dip Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy  (Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling/Middlesex University)
  • Foundation Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy (BCPC)
  • Foundation Course in Art Therapy (Insider Art)
  • Diploma in Supervision (Centre for Supervision, Training & Development, Bath) (final stages of completion)

I have been in private practice since 2014. Part of this has been based within a busy General Practitioner Surgery which has given me first hand experience in liaising with doctors to ensure the best level of support for my clients. Before this, I undertook a year of counselling placement work within the GP practice.

I have also completed a practical placement in a medium secure forensics psychiatric unit, giving me additional insight into the care pathway for those at the more extreme end of mental distress or psychosis. 

I am a member of BCPC and UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy). Both of these are professional bodies with a Code of Ethics and Practice to which I adhere. In line with BCPC and UKCP guidelines, I am closely supervised by both a UKCP-registered supervisor and a professional supervision group.  

I attend frequent CPD trainings in line with UKCP requirements and to keep my work fresh and up to date.
