About me

The reasons for seeking therapy are many. I am a strong believer in our ability as individuals to change how we feel, think and react to the situations we find ourselves in and which may be causing us difficulty. I see my role as a therapist as a facilitator, allowing a client to learn about themselves, their relationships and their behaviours.

My aim is to provide an open, non-judgmental, empathic space to allow you to explore whatever it is that brings you to therapy. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as an integrative therapist, am a qualified counsellor and a level 2 internal family systems therapist with the IFS Institute.

My integrative practice draws primarily on person centred, psychodynamic and existential psychotherapy theories. I find the internal family systems model (IFS) to be a particularly powerful and rewarding way of working and have a developing interest in working with older adults, trauma, and ADHD.

I have experience of working with a broad range of issues including Addiction, ADHD, Alcohol Use, Anger Management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Divorce, Domestic Abuse, Drug Abuse, Eating Disorders, Gambling, Hoarding, Internet Addiction, Men's Issues, Parenting, Relationship Issues, School Issues, Self Esteem, Sexual Abuse, Sexual Addiction, Sleep or Insomnia, Stress, Trauma and PTSD.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Further information

Should we decide to work together I will normally ask you to commit to attending a minimum of six sessions at which point we can discuss taking the work further if this is relevant. I tend to work with clients long term but this is not a requirement for entering therapy and it may be that what brings you here only requires short term work. I am happy to work with clients on this basis.
