About me

I work collaboratively and empathically with clients to understand their current difficulties, explore contextual and relationship challenges, improve emotional coping skills, and help clients to choose and start moving their life in valued directions.

My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing primarily on mindfulness (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and compassion-focused therapies (CFT). Working with individuals and groups in the NHS and Mind has given me experience in helping clients with a wide range of mental health difficulties.
I use ACT and CFT to work with a broad range of problems. I have specialist training in Trauma, OCD, Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, stress based work issues, Addiction and Relationship challenges. I have NHS experience and supervision for ACT & CFT (Dr Chris Irons, Dr Patricia Zurita Ona and Dr John Forsyth).

I will work together as a team to process historical difficulties, learn psychological skills to help in the present and build a meaningful future together. I have past lived-experience of the pain of mental health challenges which increases my empathy and skills to help clients get through difficulty.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
