About me

Hi there!

I am a psychotherapist providing open-ended and time-limited therapy to individuals and couples online. 

My approach

  • I have a gentle, trauma-informed approach and I put my your safety first
  • I am warm and non-judgmental, and hold a space where you can bring your whole self. No topics are 'off limits'
  • You set the pace for the work, this is a pressure-free environment
  • I work collaboratively, which means that your feedback and input are essential to the process. I also offer regular review sessions to ensure that therapy continues to be useful to you

How therapy can help

  • You're in the driver's seat of change and therapy can provide the support and empowerment that's needed to feel better and make different choices
  • You can work towards any goals you might have and discover new tools and techniques to help you reach them
  • In a safe environment you can get to know yourself and experiment with new ways of being

Practice description

I have extensive experience working in a variety of clinical settings such as IAPT, substance misuse, bereavement, domestic abuse and sexual health services. I work safely with anxiety, depression, sexual violence, relationship issues, domestic abuse, trauma, PTSD, abortion and pregnancy loss and self-harm. I also have 7 years of experience supporting LGBTQ+ and ethnic minority communities.

First session

The first session is an assessment, where we have the opportunity to get to know each other and find out what you would like from the work. We will review the counselling agreement together, discuss any practicalities and begin a gentle exploration of the reasons that bring you here.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
