About me

Is low self esteem holding you back? Maybe you don't feel heard .I'm here to listen and together we can look at how you find your voice again.
Feeling self conscious may be affecting your work and social relationships as you may often worry what others may be thinking about you . You may feel you are not enough which may lead to increasing anxiety as you withdraw from social situations ? Does it feel like everyone else seems confident and that you are alone?

I help people with feelings like this and who struggle with not feeling ‘enough’and want to let you know you are not alone.

Maybe some of these issues you have been dealing with have meant that to get to this point to start looking for support has taken courage, well done you are here. I understand and in this space, together we can help you move forward and achieve the change you seek.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as a qualified integrative therapist I am also an experienced cardiac nurse with a MSc in Cardiology and have worked in the NHS for many years. One of the reasons I trained in the counselling profession is as a result of working in clinical research where I was able to spend time with patients who felt able to share their stories . I saw how powerful it was for them to feel listened to.

I have experience of working with clients who have felt overwhelmed by their anxiety and feelings that they are not enough. I have witnessed the potency of people feeling and being heard. Together we can work through those feelings so you feel empowered.

I am a humanistic integrative therapist which in essence means I will put you at the centre of all I do and will use different theories and skills to help you work through and unlock what has brought you to counselling.

I work with clients on an individual basis and as such the therapy is tailored around you to meet your needs. I am mindful that there is a not a 'one size fits all' approach, we are all unique in our uniqueness.

I help clients to  recognise that 'wounded' part of their inner child, where potentially they may be repeating patterns of behaviour that were learnt a long time ago in experiences from childhood, part of this work is to unpack some of these long held beliefs and to reconnect with that part of you to help you to move forward.

I am also familiar with ‘parts’ work of Internal Family Systems( IFS) and am continuing to study in this area . Please see my website for more details on IFS .

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) which means I work within their ethical principles and guidelines working with integrity and fidelity.

More information about me :

I understand how difficult it is to reach out .You may worry you don't know what to say or that you will feel pushed or pressured and I want to reassure you we will go at your pace.

Taking this next step can be difficult and it may be easier for you to drop me an email please do if you prefer that to calling.

Either way I offer an initial free no obligation 20 minute session via zoom where we can discuss your hopes, needs and wants for counselling. If you should decide to proceed we can work on a short or long term basis.

I very much look forward to speaking to you.

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.
