I am an experienced BACP registered integrative psychotherapist meaning I tailor my therapy style according to my client's needs and what works best for them. I work with both short and long term clients, helping them explore their internal world so they are able to move into a place of inner calm and strength. A keen focus of my work is to use mindfulness to bring clients into the present. A lot of the issues we experience are due to triggers from the past, so through living and working in the present, these issues don't hold the same power anymore. My approach is very person-centred as I believe the key to successful therapy is a positive relationship between the client and the therapist. I also offer to work transpersonally with images and dreams, as I believe through using the creative imagination we can bypass the blocks and resistance in the mind, to work at a deeper, more transformative level.
If you'd like to book an initial session then please get in touch by email and I will endeavour to respond within 24 hours with any availability. I understand that getting started can often be daunting and overwhelming so in this session we will get to know each other and you can explain what brings you to therapy and what you hope to get from it. From there we can decide together what is the best approach to take and how many sessions we feel might be required. Most commonly we would start with one session a week for 6 sessions before we review and evaluate progress, then reassess how to proceed.
My belief is that we all get stuck at different times in our lives and through psychotherapy we can unravel the jumble in our minds to give us clarity, strength and peace.

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.
