About me

I describe myself as an integrative therapist; while common themes present in the therapy room, such as anxiety. low mood or grief, we are all individuals, and different people want different things from therapy. I am deeply committed to helping people find their way out of difficulties.

I have passion for restoring clients who have experienced emotional traumas and in helping people to gain a better understanding of how past trauma can impact on the present.

I offer a safe, warm and friendly space for clients and believe humour is an important tool in psychotherapy.  I hope that I create a compassionate, reflective space in which clients can explore their potential and overcome some of life’s challenges.

I love to work with people who are wanting to understand more about themselves to enable growth and experience an increased sense of contentment in life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a psychotherapist with many years of experience of working in a variety of settings in the NHS and charities. Alongside this I have worked in education, in particular SEN secondary schools. I have also worked with specialist services such As SARC (sexual abuse and rape crisis) centres and TaMHS (Targeted Mental health in schools) projects. At present I work with front line NHS staff , in education and I have my own private practice.

I am a registered member of the BACP and the EMDR Associations. I originally trained in Humanistic therapies at University and still am very much ‘person-centred-at’ heart. I incorporate other modalities such as EMDR, CBT, neurosciences, Mindfulness and trauma work into my practice. 

I am also a fully qualified professional mediator.

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.

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.
