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 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.
