About me

Mothers, fathers, parenthood, perinatal mental health for women and men.

Attachment, relationship issues, loss, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, loneliness can be safely explored within the therapy sessions.

Regulating sleep, healthy eating, reviewing resources, finding purpose, building community, integrating time for self care and cultivating a connection with nature are areas I explore alongside the safe, non-judgemental therapeutic alliance.

Short and long term therapy considered.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
