About me

Hello, and thank you for viewing my profile. I understand how scary it can be to take that first step in reaching out for help or support, and I hope my profile provides the information you need about who I am and my therapeutic practice. 

I am a fully qualified Counsellor & Psychotherapist and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

I work from a humanistic and integrative perspective in private practice and for a registered counselling charity, with experience in a wide range of presenting issues over short- and long-term work. I provide a safe, confidential, ethical and non-judgemental space; offering a warm, empathetic, accepting and professional relationship, as we explore any thoughts, feelings or experiences in a co-regulated working alliance. I feel the therapeutic relationship is the most significant element in the effectiveness of counselling and psychotherapy, and the core of my work is the development of a real relationship where I will bring ‘my-self' and support you to be 'your-self.'

I support the view that every person is unique; with no two experiences the same. I respect client autonomy, facilitating a sense of self that is important to you.

I believe that everyone is trying to be the best they can be, given what has happened during their lives and my philosophy as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist draws parallels with what is formed in relationship can be healed in relationship. We are all worthy of being offered the right conditions and we all have the power to move forward from a point of implacability and emotional conflict and experience freedom, whilst learning to accept and love ourselves for who we really are.

During these current exceptionally challenging times, I am offering online sessions via Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp, as well as over the telephone, to make sessions more accessible for you. Therapy online may seem daunting at first, however many clients have found being in the comfort of their own surroundings has enhanced their work, myself included. 

When looking for a therapist, it is really important that you find the right one for you. I offer a free initial 20 minute session, where we can get to know one another, talking through what you want from therapy and any worries you might have. I am happy to answer any questions about how I work, so you can make the choices you need with confidence.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP)
  • Foundation Access (Level 3) in Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • BSc (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Volunteer Psychotherapist at Nottingham Counselling Service
  • Enhanced DBS check, allowing me to work with children and vulnerable adults.

I completed the foundation access course, followed by a three year degree BSc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy: Humanistic and Integrative at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, which is accredited by the Staffordshire University.

As part of the course, I also volunteered at a Nottingham counselling charity, and have continued to offer my services since graduating. I am also in regular supervision.

I have also been a client in therapy over the years and wouldn't be where I am today without the knowledge, support, experience and contact during those sessions.

Member organisations

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.
