About me

As a person centred therapist I will always work in a way where, ultimately, I believe “you know what is right for you”. I will always be guided by you and we will work with what feels right for you.

The most important part of therapy is my relationship with my client.

My primary training style is “humanistic and existential” therapy. I work with an integrative approach, drawing skills from other modalities which always depend on what I think will benefit you the most.

I work with clients to either help them find that part of themselves, or to assist in bringing back that part of themselves, that they have disconnected with, and is maybe causing problems in day-to-day life and has stopped them from knowing “what is right for them”.

Some people come to therapy with a clear understanding of what is going wrong for them in their life; be-it an illness, death, relationship break down, redundancy etc. and want to make some changes in their life.

Sometimes we just don’t know what’s wrong, but for example are feeling anxious, sad, unable to sleep, unable to eat, eating too much, engaging in addictive activities, stuck or just unhappy with life and have no understanding as to why we feel this way.

Whatever is going on for you, at this point in your life, I am here to help you.

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with adults and young people with OCD.

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.
