About me

I am a BA (Hons), FdSc Integrative Counsellor, trained in Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic approached to counselling. I have a professional membership with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My love of integrative therapy combined with Mindfulness-based stress reduction comes from a desire for authenticity. To talk about problems and pain, but to also deepen experiences of joy and contentment. I believe a holistic and individual approach to mental health and well-being can help people help themselves and connect to a heightened sense of self through mind, body, spirit awareness.

As a counsellor passionate about the existential questions of identity, freedom and responsibility; my therapeutic work confirms the human need to reflect, interpret and create. My goal with each client is to establish genuine dialogue and connection that helps inspire empowering change.

Training, qualifications & experience

MBACP, BA HONS, FdSc, Cert Level 2 & 3.

I also have completed further training in WAVE Trauma, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Personality Disorder Awareness, and ASIST.

My therapeutic style is heavily influenced by a Humanistic core; focused on the safety of a non-judgemental, empathic and congruent relationship. A Cognitive-Behavioural awareness of how our thoughts and emotions are directly linked to behaviour and feelings. Also a Psychodynamic focus on how the past unresolved, presents itself in the present.

I have experience working with a wide range of presenting issues from anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, self-harm, and suicide ideation.

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.

Key details

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.
