About me

We all encounter ups and downs in our lives, and most of the time we are able to overcome them. Yet sometimes, we may need a helping hand. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by emotions that are difficult to comprehend, gaining a deeper insight through exploration may help in managing those feelings. Should you feel that you might benefit from talking to someone, I offer a safe and non-judgemental space to delve into what is going on for you.

I can help with general feelings of anxiety, depression, bereavement, or if you’re not quite sure what exactly you are feeling, yet there is a sense that you could be feeling better than you do. I work with people that have experience and are affected by past trauma, imposter syndrome, self-esteem issues, and a sense of being stuck in their lives.

I also aspire to work in a culturally inclusive way. To do so, I allow space for a discussion of your socio-political background. This opens up a conversation about how your cultural background may have shaped some of your life’s experiences. Understanding how these have affected you along the way may be surprising and empowering all at the same time, and I am interested in hearing your story! Do get in touch – I look forward to hearing from you!

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Bachelor of Arts from Southampton University and a Master of Science in Counselling Studies from Edinburgh University. My master’s thesis was a qualitative autoethnographic study of Intragenerational Trauma transfer within a family system, which is rooted in my interest in Family Systems Therapy. I am also interested in somatic psychology & psychotherapy, which addresses physical as well as psychological expressions of trauma and the treatment uses the body and mind holistically.

I am also a graduate of Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling at Edinburgh University, which is a COSCA accredited professional qualification course. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, which means that I comply with the ethical terms of the conduct of both counselling regulatory bodies. 

Member organisations

BACP

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.
