About me

Availability update: I am unable to take on any new clients until September 2022. 

In response to COVID-19, I am now exclusively offering therapy via Zoom so that people can stay within the safe confines of their home. During these unprecedented times, people are being met with unique challenges. I am here to provide a safe, empathetic space within which to explore uncertainties and anxieties and to try and find new ways of discovering meaning and fulfilment in the face of insecurity and fear.

I am an integrative psychotherapist who works with a wide range of issues. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and instead, recognise that every client is individual in their needs. I am therefore flexible in my approach, aiming to work in a way that is most beneficial for each client.

I provide a safe and confidential space within which to explore issues and expand awareness. In place of judgement, I offer a supportive environment in which to challenge pre-existing, debilitating thought-patterns and enable new choices and changes to be made. Together, we will examine what obstacles may be standing in the way of you fulfilling your potential and explore ways of finding a more fulfilling and authentic way of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained my BA at Cambridge University before undertaking my Foundation at The New School of Counselling and Psychotherapy and then my Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regent’s University London.

I have experience of working as both a mental health group facilitator and individual practitioner. My experience has taught me that we are all unique, and yet we all have the potential to grow and flourish as long as we are given the right conditions under which to do so.  Both my academic learning and personal experience has confirmed that it is the therapeutic relationship that is the crucible for change. It is my role to help clients recognize and remove the obstacles that may be standing in the way of living the life they want to live.

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.

Further information

Sometimes initially getting in touch can feel like the most daunting part of the process. You have the choice to get in touch via phone or email. We can then arrange an initial session in which we will discuss what you are looking for from the process and how we might best work together. I work with clients both short-term and long-term and so we can discuss what might work best for you.

Key details

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.
