About me

Life is not always smooth sailing and can be intense, challenging, and overwhelming. Talking to friends and family is helpful, but sometimes this just isn't enough. I will be your anchor in a rough sea and work alongside you to help you live a happier and healthier life. Whether you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed by anxiety, depressed, or you are struggling to make sense and meaning of things that have happened to you or that you are currently facing, I am here to help.

As an integrative practitioner, I will tailor the sessions and techniques we use to your individual needs. I respect that every person is different and unique. I will support you in exploring your current situation and your feelings and to develop life-changing habits. These will help you cope with life's various obstacles and help you grow into the person you want to be.

Reaching out for help can be hard and I have great respect for anyone who is brave enough to face their struggles. I will meet you with warmth, kindness and without any judgment. I am extremely passionate about supporting all my clients every step of the way and will help you develop new attitudes towards all of life's most complex matters.

I offer a free 20 minute consultation with no obligation to book a session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and fully insured professional therapist. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I hold a Certificate in Integrative Counselling (Level 3) and a Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling (Level 4 and 5).

Additionally I am currently working towards my Senior Coaching Accreditation with the EMCC Global (European Mentoring and Coaching Council).

I regularly attend workshops and seminars, as continual professional development is at the heart of my practice.

I have experience working with a variety of psychological and emotional issues, through working within an NHS surgery, offering therapy to their patients.

Besides my private practice, I facilitate a mental health support group for young people as part of my work for a local charity.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
