About me

I am a trained psychotherapeutic counsellor offering short-term and long term counselling via zoom. I currently have availability on Fridays.

I create an environment that allows my clients the opportunity to reflect on events and situations that they have previously experienced, whether that is from their childhood or more recently or indeed currently facing. We will explore the impacts that these past or current circumstances are having on you and how you interact with the world around you in a safe and contained setting. This may include feeling things such as lack of direction or identity, burnout, anxiety or depression.

I offer sessions where this can be done with the hope that you may get to know and understand yourself better and why you are the way you are, unique.

The modality/approach I use is integrative, this means that I individualise my work by blending multiple different therapies to understand and work with you in a way that is meaningful. This includes humanistic, person centred, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, developmental, as well as others.  

I work with the Ethical guidelines of the BACP upholding confidentiality.

If you are looking for a counselling email me for an appointment and we can discuss the future of working together. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I currently occupy a Wellbeing Lead post at one of the Colleges at the University of Cambridge, supporting students, staff and Fellows. I offer 1:1 consultations with members of the community. I also  facilitating training to equip the community to thrive under the intense pressure of Cambridge where many feel a sense of perfectionism and imposter syndrome. I believe understanding and accepting oneself is perfection and we can all learn how to achieve this. 

I also have 10 years experience of working within mental health services. This has been amongst various roles; in both voluntary and paid capacities spanning from acute hospitals to the charity sector. This experience includes the NHS,  a private secure forensic hospital, MIND and SOVA Support Link (working with exoffenders with lifelong psychological and communication needs). Working with a variety of diagnoses such as anxiety, social anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), depression and trauma to those struggling with low self-esteem, low self-confidence, stress from workload or family issues, relationship problems.

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.
