About me

I am an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor, with many years experience of working with adults and young people aged 11-18.

I aim to create a warm, secure and empathic environment in which clients can creatively explore their emotional world. 

Every person is unique and so I strive to offer each client the approaches and techniques that best suit their way of being. 

With some clients, I use a lot of creative approaches including sand tray, clay and art to facilitate the exploration of unconscious processes. 

Other clients prefer to use techniques integrated from a cognitive behavioural model, including education around emotional and cognitive awareness, emotional regulation strategies and challenging unhelpful patterns of thinking. 

Some clients may seek counselling with a specific issue or goal in mind. Others may know they are not satisfied with aspects of their lives but are unsure of what they need to move forward.

At the centre of all my work are the person centred conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. I believe that given the right conditions, every person will move towards a more satisfying and authentic way of living. I strive to create these conditions for those with whom I work. 

I am GSRD and LGBTQI+ affirmative.

All are welcome. Please feel free to get in touch for an initial conversation if you'd like to find out more about me and how I work.

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.
