About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, unmotivated, empty or alone? Have you noticed that you are repeating the same patterns of behaviour or find yourself feeling 'numb'?  Do you feel disconnected to yourself and others? Do you find that anxiety, low self esteem or your relationships are making it hard to find joy in your life?  I have felt these things too. 

I work with diverse clients  and communities from different backgrounds, and with differing needs from therapy. Community and diversity are important to me in terms of inclusion, relationship models, gender and sexual identities, ethnicities, nationalities, class backgrounds, and culture.  

I'm an integrative counsellor which means that I use different counselling theories and approaches to support you. I can also use Mindfulness and Therapeutic Yoga to support you. 

As your counsellor, I will provide you with a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space where you can be yourself and talk about whatever you choose. I will help you decide how you want to use your time for therapy and what for. I have a plethora of creative tools that support you in exploring your individuality to support your therapy journey. I will ensure that we stay focused on your agenda throughout our sessions.

Allowing you to explore what is going on for you and equip or add to your current toolkit, building a solid foundation for you to better support yourself and your child.

I work with Women who have experienced Trauma through a difficult or abusive relationship, to build a kinder relationship with yourself. We may focus on community, building resilience, self-worth, confidence, emotional regulation, compassion for yourself, stress reduction, positive relationships with yourself and others and generally improving or beginning self-care.

Member organisations

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
