About me

Sometimes life leaves us feeling lost, overwhelmed, or stuck, like we're walking through a maze without a map. That's where therapy comes in, offering a guide to understanding yourself and creating a path toward positive change.

I am a professionally qualified and highly experienced UKCP Accredited Counselling Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor. At the heart of my therapeutic approach is your pace, your journey and your goals. Diversity isn't just respected in my practice; it's celebrated. Regardless of your gender, sexuality, race, or beliefs, you are welcome here.

Grounded in principles of safety, individualized care, and affirmative practice, I aim to foster a safe and confidential environment, promoting self-awareness, self-acceptance, and holistic well-being, where clients can explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviours without fear of judgment. My methodology is rooted in Integrative Psychotherapy, which means I tailor my approach using a blend of methods like CBT, Mindfulness, neurobiology, EMDR, and more, all aimed at empowering the clients to find lasting solutions to their challenges. I have specific training in areas like ADHD, autism, neurodiverse relationships, women's health, anxiety, depression and trauma, allowing me to offer a nuanced understanding to a wide range of clients.

Whether you're an adult, a young person, part of a couple, or in a group, consider this an invitation. An invitation to embark on a journey of self-discovery, to face life's challenges not alone but partnered with someone who is genuinely invested in seeing you heal, grow, and thrive.

Training, qualifications & experience

In my 15 years as a therapist, I've built a strong foundation by collaborating with esteemed organizations such as the NHS, Mind, and the Tasha Foundation. My professional journey has allowed me to work extensively with young people, students, and adults, providing holistic and client-centred care.

My background is rooted in Integrative Psychotherapy, a comprehensive approach that allows me to employ a range of therapeutic tools tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each client. This includes evidence-based modalities such as CBT, Mindfulness, Transactional Analysis, Creative Therapies, and EMDR.

My academic credentials include a Master's degree in Psychotherapy from Birmingham University, achieved with distinction. I also underwent comprehensive training at the Northern Guild in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy, an institution accredited by both BACP and UKCP. As a certified EMDR practitioner and holder of a Clinical Supervision certificate, I am well-equipped to guide clients through a range of emotional and psychological challenges.

When it comes to Continuing Professional Development, my repertoire is both broad and deep. I have extensive specialist training in a range of areas including women's health, ADHD, autism, and trauma. My skills are further enriched by a strong background in creative therapeutic methods, relationship therapy, and various therapeutic modalities such as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Sand-Tray Therapy among others.

I am committed to offering an approach that is not only deeply informed but also continually evolving, ensuring that my clients receive the most comprehensive and up-to-date therapeutic experience possible.
