About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and offer one-to-one therapy for adults. I can work with you on a long-term, open-ended basis, as well as offering time-limited sessions.

Therapy can offer a space for insight, understanding, growth and change. I offer a safe, confidential place to share what is immensely difficult, but also hold space to involve humour, laughter and play in my work too. This can be an important part of coming to terms with hardships and loss, and of healing.

Integrative means that I am trained in many different styles of psychotherapy and don't believe in a single way of working. I may use creative arts, imagery work, body work or gestalt experimentation as a way to support growth and self-expression but I will also invite you to explore your past experiences as a way to help you to re-think your current issues. I believe in working relationally, which means that the relationship between us can be an important tool to support you to understand the other relationships in your life. I also believe that the social and cultural context in which we live has an impact upon our mental health, and it can be enlightening and helpful to explore this.

Get in touch

You can call or email to set up a time to meet for an initial session.

In this session, we'll talk through what you'd like to get out of counselling and any other questions you might have about either practical matters, or the process.

Then if you're happy to continue we'll set up a second session and arrange a date and time to meet regularly.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from The Minster Centre and have experience of working with: abuse, anxiety, bereavement, depression, identity, neurodiversity, relationships, sexuality, trauma and issues of diversity and difference.

Before I became a psychotherapist I worked within the charity sector. Alongside my private practise, I continue to work for a low- cost therapy service and have previously worked for a university counselling service, providing short-term therapy to undergraduate and mature students. Outside of my work, I am passionate about music which has influenced the dissertation topic for my MA, exploring how, as an alternative to words, music in the therapeutic space can be used to communicate feeling and experience.

I am committed to ensuring my practice is an inclusive and respectful space for all; regardless of sexuality, gender identity, race, religion, age, body size or ability.

I am a registered member of the BACP (registration number 854357) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Codes of Practise.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
