About me

I am a fully trained and qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor (BA Hons in Integrative-Relational Counselling) and a registered member of British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), working with adults and young people. I am currently studying for a Post-Graduate Diploma in Traumatology and PTSD in adults and children. I have experience working both short-term and long-term in a wide range of difficulties.

My goal is to support you in understanding yourself better and help you to move forward. Talking to someone can be the first step to a more fulfilling and satisfying life. Our first session will be an opportunity for you to see if we are suited to work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

My way of working is ‘ Integrative-relational’ which means that I draw on different approaches to support my work that is tailored to individual needs.

My aim is to create a safe space where you can feel comfortable talking about what might be troubling you. I have experience in working with anxiety, low mood and depression. Other areas I am able to help include panic attacks, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, bereavement, trauma, stress, anger and work/school related issues.

Together we can explore and find ways to improve your emotional well-being.

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.
