About me

Who comes to therapy?

Do you feel like you are not yourself lately? Is it hard to get out of bed in the mornings? Work or study is going well but you are ‘off your game’ at times and find yourself demotivated?

Maybe the idea of social gatherings makes you feel anxious? Or friends have noticed something has changed in you. This can make you feel isolated and alone like no one understands.

While the state of the world feels bleak and unpredictable it is difficult to know where you stand. Perhaps you are finishing study or making a career change and are unsure of where you are going now. Do you struggle to be ‘truly you’ around family and friends who judge your choices?

I offer a warm, inclusive, relaxed space where you can feel safe, accepted and understood.

How does therapy work?

I provide a space that is unique and independent from the rest of your life, where you can talk without judgement and be fully accepted. Together we will explore your thoughts and feelings to understand how you got here and find the root of your problem to restore your identity, health, and happiness.

When the path ahead is foggy it can leave you feeling unsure of who you are or what you want. The process of looking back into the past can help you understand how you got here, in order to make clearer decisions for the future. I will walk with you and be your sounding board, listening ear and confidant to help create lasting change. Through exploring your relationships and upbringing I will help you achieve your personal goals to reach the happiness you deserve. 

As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I draw upon a range of different modalities, enabling me to create a specially tailored approach that suits you. The process of ‘Integration’ refers to bringing together separate parts to create a cohesive whole. This bringing together can help empower you to stand confidently in your identity to flourish as intended. My focus on relational psychology will offer you insight into how your significant relationships have impacted you, both past and present.

What happens next?

Taking that first step to reaching out for help is brave. To make sure you feel comfortable choosing me to walk this journey with you please get in touch. I offer a free consultation that involves an informal 20-minute chat on the phone. You will be able to tell me a bit about yourself and why you’re reaching out, and ask me about how I work.

If you feel happy we will arrange the first session, discuss the contract and set the scene by thinking about your goals for therapy. I offer you autonomy over your sessions and am happy to work on a short, medium, or long term basis depending on your needs.

Please get in touch via email or phone, feel free to call or text me to organise a consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP accredited Psychotherapist and member of the BACP. I have gained an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute associated with Staffordshire University. Before this, I graduated from Northumbria University in Newcastle with a BSc in Psychology.

I have over 8 years of training, volunteering and professional experience working with psychology, mental health and different client groups in multiple settings. I have worked with vulnerable women experiencing homelessness in a befriending capacity while studying for my BSc. I have also volunteered on a sexual abuse helpline and have extensive knowledge of sexual trauma and its impact. I have worked as a Psychotherapist in multiple charitable settings offering therapy to a diverse client base working closely with members of the LGBTQIA+ community, ethnic minorities, and young people. 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
