About me

My objective is to create an open and trusting relationship between myself and my client which will help them gain a better understanding of themselves, and find the resources to move forward.

I aim to provide a safe, confidential, and tranquil environment that will allow you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I will endeavour to be non-judgemental and provide unconditional positive regard in the hope that this will bring the changes necessary for growth.

I have over 20 years of experience and currently work in private practice. Having recently completed a MSc in Neuroscience, Psychiatry & Psychology this has helped to enhance the way I work. Understanding the brain functioning of behaviours that can trigger chemical responses in the reward system for example, helps to see addictions and maladaptive thinking and behaviours to manifest through our experiences and behaviours.

My proposed research was looking at how mindfulness meditation can alter biomarkers in the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis (HPA) and consequently change inflammation responses that can cause distressing consequences both psychological and physiological.

Working prominently with the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System) to regulate anxiety and depression symptoms, this gives insight into how emotions can be balanced to promote healthy mental health.

Additionally neuroscience helps us to understand neurodivergent individuals and how they can differ in cognition and perception,

Embracing everyone’s individual perception of reality and inviting them to help me to understand their fears and struggles is how I choose to work.

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice. As required by this Code, my counselling work is regularly supervised.

I also work as a Clinical Supervisor being qualified to CPCAB Diploma Level 5

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
