About me

Do you struggle with workplace performance? Anxiety? Stress and feelings of overworked with no time for your personal life? Let's work together.

I am a Counselling Psychologist registered and qualified with the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a Senior Accredited Member and Life Coach with the Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists. I have over 7 years of training and work experience offering evidence-based practice in the field of Psychology, both in therapeutic and business psychology contexts.

I am the Clinical Director for Bourne Path, an all in one service to help clients to fulfill their work and personal goals by offering psychotherapy, life coaching and psychometric testing.

At Bourne Path, I work with individuals, couples, families and older adults, of all populations, ethnicities and backgrounds.  I offer a non-judgemental, positive and warm environment to help provide solutions to a variety of issues.

Our work together begins with a consultation, which will give us a chance to explore the issues you want to work on and for us to see if we'd like to embark on this therapeutic journey together as a team.

Most common areas of counselling issues I work with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress, distress management and coping
  • Anger management
  • Relationship concerns at home, work or school
  • Self-esteem
  • Work stress and conflict
  • Family conflict
  • Parenting
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Gender identity

Most common types of treatment I use:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic
  • Humanistic
  • Integrative
  • Systemic

Client Populations

  • Individuals (young children to older adults)
  • Couples
  • Families

Please note that in addition to in-person, I offer sessions online via videoconferencing (Skype).

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.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

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.
