About me

I’m passionate about helping my clients unlock their potential, believe in themselves, and lead a fulfilled life. 

As a humanistic psychotherapist I deliver my therapy in a person-centred way, this means I’ll be working with you to help you develop a strong and healthy sense of self, explore your feelings, and find meaning in your life experiences. I am also a qualified coach and can bring elements of coaching to the work we do together to help with moving forward and achieving future goals.

Our work is a collaborative and creative process and we’ll both commit to the time and work required to create the change you’re looking for.

I provide a non-judgemental, safe space for us to co-create a way of working together, we’ll begin with talking about what’s brought you to therapy and what you hope to get from the process.

We’ll discuss your experience of therapy and any fears you have about the process. Moving forward we can make your sessions as structured (with an agenda for example) or as free flowing as you feel comfortable with.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling from the University of Salford and I completed my coaching training as part of the ICF Accredited Coach Training Program - Mastering Your Power.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (member number: 392499) and I regularly attend supervision to make sure I am delivering my practice to the highest standard and meeting the needs of my clients.

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.
