About me

I am an integrative therapist working collaboratively with clients to help them solve the issues they bring to therapy.

I have a private practice seeing couples and individuals. I specialise in relationship therapy having trained with Relate and being a Relate Practitioner. Previously, I specialised in working with young people, having founded and led a counselling service in a mainstream senior academy for 9 years.

I am experienced in working with many different issues, including relationship issues, eating disorders, obesity, self-harming, depression/low mood, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, low self-esteem, substance abuse, sexual abuse, anger management and trauma. I have also worked as a trauma therapist for a charity working with adult survivors of sexual abuse. 

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to the BACP professional code of ethics and practice. My work is supervised and I am fully insured.

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.
