About me

If you are reading this then I am guessing that you have reached a place where things are not going as you would like them to, or that you feel 'stuck'. My goal is not to give you the answers, my goal is to help you realise that you already have the answers.

I am a fully insured and supervised therapist specialising in addiction. I work in a Humanistic way and, although my specialism is addiction, I work with various issues including depression, relationships, trauma, and grief. I utilise various approaches, including Adlerian therapy, CBT and attachment theory. I tailor my approach to you, my client.

I work out of my comfortable and self-enclosed therapy room in Earith, Cambridgeshire which offers off-street parking. 

I am also working out of Salus Wellness Clinics in central Cambridge

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc Addiction Psychology & Counselling, BA (Hons) Social Policy, I have trained in Adlerian Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Person Centred Counselling. I have completed Post Induction Therapy with The Meadows and Working with Compulsive Sexual Behaviour Disorder with The Laurel Centre. As a working therapist I am committed to my own personal growth and also keeping abreast of current work and therefore I attend regular therapy (alongside Supervision) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

I continue to work in a wide range of areas, and my experience covers a variety of settings such as residential rehabs, community services and prisons. These include:

The Priory, Central & North West London NHS Foundation Trust, Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust (RAPt), Staffordshire & South Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust, Phoenix Futures Sanctuary Lodge, Focus12, Sanctuary Lodge, Perry Claymore Project (PCP) and Change Grow Live.

Member organisations

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

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).

Further information

I firmly believe that you are the expert in your life, and that my job is to listen. Receiving counselling is about giving yourself the space to find your own truth. This may initially feel strange, but, as we progress on this - your journey - together, my hope is that this will start feeling natural and you will gain the confidence to move forward.
