About me

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Utilising my range of clinical experience and training, I integrate a range of theoretical approaches to collaboratively develop a treatment plan with my clients. I draw predominantly on psychodynamic, person-centred and CBT therapy to support my clients facing a range of mental health and life difficulties.

If you are experiencing life's challenges and are considering therapy, then you have already made a significant first step in your journey of healing. Whether you are facing difficulties with your moods, having interpersonal difficulties or feel overwhelmed, therapy may enable you a safe and containing space to reflect and process some of the challenges. Therapy may also enable you to develop insight to how you relate to others and yourself, finding different and healthier ways of relating which can lead to life changes and healing.

Starting therapy can be challenging, yet rewarding, leading to life changes. Please feel free to get in touch directly by email or telephone for a free initial consultation. Whilst therapy can be challenging I aim to ensure that I build a safe and supportive relationship to nurture positive change. Please feel free to visit my website for more information.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BSc degree in Psychology and a MSc degree in Counselling Psychology. In addition to my Master's level qualification in psychotherapeutic training, I am currently also a Trainee Counselling Psychologist, undertaking a doctoral degree in Counselling Psychology. This means that I am taught and supervised by leading edge Psychologists within the field to provide the highest quality of therapy to my clients. 

My clinical experience includes working within the NHS, charity and private settings. Within the NHS, I worked in the community within primary care services supporting individuals with common mental health difficulties such as depression and anxiety. I also worked in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service Crisis team, supporting young people experiencing emotional crises. Furthermore, I also have experience working with individuals experiencing substance misuse difficulties. My experience within a charity organisation includes working with individuals facing or experiencing homelessness amongst individuals between 16 to 25. 

My clinical experience also includes forensic settings, where I have worked in a high-security female prison with individuals diagnosed with personality difficulties and significant trauma.  

Member organisations

BACP

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.
