About me

I am an experienced BACP registered integrative psychotherapist and counsellor working in Frome, Somerset and Hackney, London. If you are reading this you may be feeling that something is getting in the way of how you would like to be, you may be feeling low, self-critical, anxious or sad.

It is not unusual to reach a point of feeling unhappy, stuck in old patterns or confused. Whatever might be the reason you wish to seek counselling or psychotherapy, seeking support and reaching out can be hard, yet incredibly rewarding. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between a client and a therapist is of great importance and that therapy can help you to identify your negative thinking patterns and offer solutions for a life with more choices.
I offer a supportive, non-judgemental, safe and fully confidential space in which we can explore your experience in the world and the issues that may be troubling you.

I offer a complimentary initial consultation in person at my practice in Frome or online. Counselling or psychotherapy can overlap, counselling often refers to shorter-term goal-oriented work, while psychotherapy involves longer-term work that explores issues in greater depth. I work with individuals a using both models and am guided by what you are able to commit to – emotionally, practially and financially.

As an Integrative therapist, I have trained in and draw upon a range of thinking, ideas and techniques, and adapt them to what I feel is best suited to you. These include Attachment Informed psychotherapy, Person Centred, CBT and Mindfulness practices. I have an interest in somatic experience and I draw on the wealth of information the body is communicating to you as an individual, providing connection to deeper understanding of your unconscious responses.

Regardless of approach studies have consistently shown that it is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client that produces the most positive outcomes. I hope our initial meeting would allow you to talk freely about what brought you to me, along with any goals you may wish to achieve, and any questions you may have about the therapy process. Importantly, you will experience what I’m like and how I work. In turn, I would explain more about my way of working, as wall as my policy on confidentiality, cancellations and appointment times.

If we agree to work together, we may then work out for how long – it may be just a few sessions or on an open-ended basis. It is helpful to layout out a time-frame together from the beginning but nothing is set in stone and we can always review the work as it unfolds.

I am a relational therapist so I don’t ask you to lie in a coach (unless you want to!) and I am not a blank screen but hope to be in dialogue with you, you are welcome to bring material that may be useful for you to share – drawings, dreams or journals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am BACP certified and I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative counselling and psychotherapy from the Minster Centre in North London. I began my career in the arts and continue to work with clients from creative industries. I have an interest in the relationship between creativity and psychotherapy and how crisis can be a catalyst for change.

As well as my private practice, I have worked for the NHS offering short and long term therapy and for charitable counselling services, which means I have had the privilege of working with a number of presenting issues with people from many walks of life.

I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :
anxiety, depression, low self esteem, relationship breakdown, divorce and bereavement.

Managing neurodiversity:  including Adult ADHT and adult autism.

Attachment issues: including early childhood trauma and development trauma.

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.

Accredited register membership

Additional information

Many people can feel apprehensive about coming to therapy - it is an important step and commitment. I offer a free 50 minute consultation. In this session we will look briefly at what has lead you to seek therapy, what you would like to achieve and what support you are looking for. We can also discuss what happens in therapy, how I work and any questions you may have around it. If we do decide we would like to work together we will book a first session. I offer short term (6- 12 sessions) or longer term work. Our sessions will be at the same time every week.
