As a qualified and accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Systemic Practitioner in private practice, I provide counselling and psychotherapy to adults, children, and young people. I also work with couples and families in Moseley, Birmingham, B13. My practice is within easy reach of Kings Heath (B14).
A core component of my work is about supporting clients to explore their life experiences in their own way. For some, the prospect of this can be daunting. Knowing they will be listened to and not judged can help to make this process feel more manageable.
I am trained in the Humanistic Integrative, CBT and Systemic approach to counselling and psychotherapy. My approach recognises the uniqueness of the individual and the need for the therapy to adapt to the client’s own way of being. I am qualified to deliver a wide range of therapeutic approaches including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Humanistic Counselling, Systemic and CBT. I am also able to integrate various philosophical perspectives, Mindfulness and creative therapies into my work.
Intrinsic to the success of therapy is the working alliance within the client-therapist relationship. I have found that being able to draw upon what’s happening in the therapy room is a valuable means of gaining further insight into one’s relationships and experiences with others.
The therapy will challenge you at the same time as maintaining respect for your unique way of understanding and living your life.
I work on an open-ended or time-limited basis. I am registered and accredited with the BACP.
I offer concessions for clients that are eligible for employment support benefits, full-time students and trainee student therapists.

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.
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
