About me

I am an integrative CBT therapist, and recognise how life can be crap at times.  I can help if you are feeling stuck and finding it hard to find your way out or if you are feeling anxious, depressed or struggling with self-esteem having lost belief in yourself. This can be due to things happening around you, big life changes, challenges and trauma experienced in the past or current relationship difficulties. 

The work I do looks to understand unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns developed in the past and how they are impacting you in the here and now. When we make sense of the past, we can make sustainable changes today. 

I offer a space of connection, sometimes it is calm and quiet, other times it is real human discussion with warts and all.

In addition to CBT, I use other modalities, such as Schema, Compassion Focused and Polyvagal theory where appropriate to support our work. Together we'll tailor an approach helpful for you in meeting your therapy goals.

I work with teenagers and adults of all genders. I have a specific interest in working with issues relating to self-image, shame and guilt.

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.
