About me

Embark on a journey towards improved mental health with a caring therapist dedicated to your needs. Our UK-based mental health directory offers support for various issues, including parenting challenges, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, family dynamics, low self-esteem, trauma, and grief. We provide an inclusive environment, ensuring a safe space for everyone, whether you're new to therapy or seeking deeper healing.

Person-Centred Approach Tailored to Your Preferences

Utilising a person-centred approach, I offer therapy methods tailored to your preferences, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) if it aligns with your goals. Together, we'll find the most suitable approach, ensuring your comfort and readiness at every stage

Exploring Underlying Reasons for Emotional Struggles

During our sessions, we'll delve into the underlying reasons behind your emotional struggles, often linked to past events. Our focus will be on enhancing your self-awareness to facilitate meaningful change. Recognising the challenges of starting therapy, I offer an introductory session to establish rapport and determine the best path forward.

Combining Empathy, Creativity, and Proven Techniques

By combining empathy, creativity, and techniques like EMDR (if you're open to it), I facilitate healing and self-discovery. Let's transform challenges into opportunities for growth and improved emotional health.

Get Started with an Introductory Session

Take the first step towards better mental wellbeing by booking an introductory session. This initial consultation will allow us to establish a connection and determine the most suitable approach for your unique needs.

My journey includes impactful roles at secondary schools and various mental health services, complemented by substantial experience with private clients. As an experienced therapist, I offer tailored, compassionate mental health support, integrating effective strategies to meet diverse individual needs.
 
 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP
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.
