About me

With a commitment to a deeply empathic therapeutic relationship, I provide highly individualised state-of-the-art CBT to address your unique concerns.

I passionately value individuality and the rich diversity present in the human race. I respect and aim to understand your unique perspectives, experiences, challenges, ambitions, goals, relationships, and life circumstances. My therapeutic approach is solely centred around you! 

Training, qualifications & experience

I feel fortunate to have worked in a helping capacity before I trained as a psychotherapist. I spent years providing career counselling and academic consulting services; an experience which aids me in understanding the highly diverse ways of life people choose. 

Through the course of my training as a therapist, I have discovered that psychotherapy is both an art and a science. I find that my creative interests in music and writing nourishes my 'right-brain' wisdom, allowing me to tune in to the artistic, inspired dimension of therapy. As for my technical training, I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which ensures competent and ethical practice. I hold a Master's in Counselling and Psychotherapy (w/Distinction), and a certification in the state-of-the-art CBT (T.E.A.M CBT). I am pursuing higher levels of competency and certification in T.E.A.M CBT in the form of on-going weekly live training from master clinicians in the USA.

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.
