Starting therapy can be overwhelming enough as it is, and then the different terms and words that people use can add stress and confusion to an already disruptive time.
I am a talking therapist. By using an integrative approach it means that I have studied in a way which allows me to weave together a unique approach for each one of my clients.
The human experience is complex; each one of us has had our own individual journey, a weaving together of experiences; which leads to our own special take on life, events, emotions, thoughts and relationships.
I am client lead in my work, I work WITH you to find the best approach that suits your needs. Over time we will build a relationship that has trust at its core, where I am walking alongside you, being guided by you to find the healing approaches and techniques that help me understand you better; and in turn you will better understand yourself too. I seek to provide a growth facilitating environment for my clients where we can look at these issues and begin to repair and restore your sense of self.
There is not set time for therapy, and this is something we can discuss further should we embark on working together.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to book in for a free introduction call.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
From £70.00 to £80.00
Free initial telephone or online session
Concessions offered for
Sessions are priced at £80, however, I understand that in these uncertain times that money may be an issue, so I do offer a sliding scale for those who need it.
When I work
I have a deep interest in the body. Being a yoga teacher I will often draw on the use of felt sense, breath, meditation and mindfulness techniques to better access anything we cannot reach through the cognitive mind.
