I am a qualified psychotherapist with experience in the NHS, private and voluntary sectors. I work with individuals in an integrative way, that is to say I draw on a range of theories and therapeutic approaches to explore the difficulties with living that have brought you to therapy in the first place. I work with a wide range of issues including stress, anxiety and depression, post-natal depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, workplace difficulties and low self-esteem
If you are new to therapy, it can be very daunting, so we will take the time at our initial meeting to explore whether this process is right for you, what your hopes and expectations are and whether you feel I am the right person to embark on the process with you.
If you do wish to continue with me, I offer both short and long-term work. I am a member of BACP and abide by their code of ethics, and am also a member of the Society for Existential Analysis.
Training, qualifications & experience
MA in Integrative Psychotherapy
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
