About me

My approach:

I am a BACP registered Psychotherapist, with an integrative approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy that allows me to adapt therapy to my client's individual needs.  

What works for one person, may not work for another and as an Integrative Therapist, I will work with you as an individual in your circumstances using elements of person-centred, existential, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy to help you explore and cope with your problems.

To promote healing and facilitate wholeness, therapy is tailored to your needs ensuring that all levels of your being and functioning are fully maximised. This means working together to explore emotions, behaviours, thoughts and physiology, in addition to social and spiritual aspects. Relationships from childhood may also be explored and all of this helps to facilitate the coming together of mind, body, feeling, and soul as a whole.  

My aim is to empower you through self-exploration and a deeper understanding of the factors in your life that are causing current concerns.  We will work together to recognise triggers, change unhelpful patterns of behaviour and create personal and behavioural change.

Relationships can be the greatest difficulties we face and can be explored by airing thoughts and feelings, understanding how we relate to others and how love is given and received. This enables a deeper understanding of oneself and a feeling of peace within yourself and your relationships.

One of the most important aspects of my approach is the quality of the relationship between myself and my client. I am warm, non-judgmental and empathetic and can offer a safe, friendly, supportive and confidential space in which difficulties and concerns can be shared and perhaps most importantly where they can feel seen, heard and understood.

Your next step: 

Please do get in touch if you feel that I may be the therapist for you and we can book an initial assessment. This will provide you with the opportunity to see whether you feel comfortable about working together.

Sessions are 50 minutes in length and are held on a weekly basis. Counselling can be short or long-term, depending on the issues you are facing.

Regular reviews are held during the counselling process to discuss how you feel about the process and how many weeks you should receive counselling for.

I offer face-to-face and online therapy.

Registered member MBACP

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.
