I am a qualified and experienced Integrative counsellor and I have a combined approach, drawing on Person Centered, EFT, CBT, and Psychodynamic Therapies. This allows me to tailor the way I work to your individual needs and circumstances.
I specialise in relationship counselling, working with couples or individuals, and can help you enhance and repair relationships with the people closest to you by helping you to identify and free you from old patterns.
I am a Certified Emotionally Focussed Therapist. Emotionally Focussed Therapy is a tested intervention to reduce distress in couple relationships and create more secure attachment bonds. This is usually a short-term approach for couples but it is also used for families and individuals.
I have experience of working with mixed agenda couples where one partner wants to end the relationship and one partner wants the relationship to continue.
I am offering sessions with couples and individuals, as well as supervision for relationship counsellors.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
