Therapy

About me

I am a BACP registered Humanistic Integrative therapist offering either short or long term counselling/psychotherapy.

I create a safe space for you to explore who you are and where you’ve come from and how you’d like to be. All of you is welcome. We’ll mostly be talking but we will also take time to check into the body and to breathe and allow space to feel and be.

My main inspiration is the person centred therapy approach where you, the client, know best what is going on for you. But also sometimes I will make some interpretations to help you make sense of yourself and what might be going on for you in the room with me and in your life outside. By getting to know ourselves better we can gently and compassionately understand ourselves and our blocks and defences. And then we can start to make choices about how to be and experiment with new ways of being.

Other areas that I may draw on to help our work together may include shamanic practices, polyvagal theory, body based psychotherapy approaches, yoga, and breathwork.

I am a LGBTQIA+ and trauma informed therapist and welcome people of all backgrounds.

I am also interested in working with people who are using traditional plant medicines and psychedelics for their healing to help with preparation and integration.

I am currently working on zoom or offer walking in nature sessions in Highgate Woods or Alexandra Palace Park with in person in the room sessions to start soon. My fees are £60-70 for a 50 minute session.

We can do a 15 minute intro chat to get to know each other first before booking in sessions.

Contact me by email or call 07866 864021.

Member organisations

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.
