About me

It can be so hard to reach out for help. Perhaps you are feeling unhappy, anxious or adrift in some way- or there's a specific issue you'd like to work through. You end up pouring through pages of profiles from professionals who all sound (and in many cases look) the same. How on earth are you meant to know who is the right person to sit with and share your vulnerabilities with?

Beginning counselling can feel like an impossible task, and I am here to provide an authentic and friendly face as you start to explore your issues, whatever those might be.

I am an integrative counsellor. I work with different styles of counselling, to create an approach that is personalised for you and responsive to your needs. I particularly draw from psychodynamic, attachment based, feminist and internal family systems models. This means that we are likely to spend lots of time in sessions talking about your different 'parts' such as internal critic and inner child, as well as the influence of your past on your present, as well as the influence of systems of oppression on your psychological wellbeing.

I am LGBTQ+ affirming, and strongly believe that how someone relates to their sexuality, gender identity, race, social class, disability or other social identities can play a big role in their mental wellbeing, and I welcome exploration of this in sessions.

Whoever you are, and whatever it is that's troubling you, I welcome you to contact me to set up an initial conversation to see if we could be the right fit for each other.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have plentiful experience working with anxiety and depression, trauma, those who hear voices and those who are experiencing a mental health crisis, as well as particular experience working with university age adults. I will work collaboratively with you, but believe that you are the expert on your own life, and my role is to be alongside you to provide compassionate support and a gentle challenge where appropriate to help you unpack things in a warm and non-judgemental space.

I have completed an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling.

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

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.
