About me

I offer 1-2-1 remote therapy sessions to adults and young people using a cognitive behavioural approach, however will adapt support to my clients needs.

Allied with the LGBTQ+, consensual non-monogamous/polyamorous and kink communities; I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for any person who identifies in any of these ways. I am also a strong ally for sex workers and an advocate for stigma reduction for this community, which can create barriers to accessing mental health support.

Sessions are offered over the phone or via webcam.  Please send your enquiry by email.  Initial consultation fee is £30 and session rate is £40, however concessions of £30 are available for unemployed/low income and students.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, an MSc in Advanced Practice (Mental Health) and I am a member of BACP.  I have over 2 years experience of delivering support privately, through the NHS and via EAP services.

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.
