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


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.
