About me

As an integrative therapist with a background in neuroscience, I provide a non-judgmental environment to explore causes of anxiety, depression, loneliness, self-esteem, issues around relationships, sexuality, gender, neurodiversity and addiction. Using science informed psycho-education as a way of taking the stigma or self judgement you may be placing on yourself. By explaining what is going on in the mind. How this may lead towards certain decisions that we make and then how those decisions may lead back to our emotions.

I combine multidisciplinary approaches using motivational interviewing to find your strengths, find acheivable goals as well as using CBT as a way of identifying triggers for any uncomfortable emotions and healthy ways to work through stressful thoughts, feelings, experiences or ideas.

Therapy is your space to bring whatever may be concerning you. Together we can work out what you want out of your life as well as identify things that may be holding you back or causing distress. Then we can work towards tools and strategies to decrease stressful intrusive thoughts and help find happiness, relaxation, joy and motivation to get the most satisfaction out of life.

Feel free to call or email and we can set up a free phone consultation to see if we would work well together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been practicing for over 12 years, with a Masters in Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy and a degree in Psychology and Neuroscience. I have worked in a range of different settings from crisis/call centres, neurodiversity, LGBTI, sexual health, mental health, drug and alcohol, private practice, intellectual disability, homelessness and bespoke services.

My approach is to provide a space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings while using evidence based approaches. Moving at a speed that is comfortable to you to build trust to share emotions that you may be going through, while providing a holding space. We can then explore what aspects of our life are important and what aspects are having a negative impact on you that you wish to address. Then we can work through tools find more different approaches to dealing with your concerns.

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.

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).

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
