About me

I work holistically with the whole person rather than the issue. My experience and interests includes working with children and young people, looked after children, attachment issues, self esteem, anxiety, sexual issues, eating disorders, anger, self harm/injury, confidence, bullying, depression, stress,  C/PTSD, OCD, sexual abuse, bereavement and mental health. 

We are all different and individuals need different things at different times. Therapy is a dynamic process and is most effective when it is collaborative.  Listening, understanding and offering a non-judgemental space is proven to be the most effective way to help clients. I will adapt and and respond to you as an individual, and can work in a variety of ways with you. There are many ideas and theories in therapy, and below are some that I have understanding and experience in.

Person or client-centred therapy is based on the view that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, given the right conditions. Rather than being seen as the expert and directing the therapy, the counsellor works to create a relationship where you feel safe, understood and accepted. Experiencing these conditions can help you come to terms with feelings, experiences and events and help you to heal, change and develop in your own way. Person centred therapy is an empowering form of therapy.  

​Creative therapy includes a wide range of techniques which can help you find a way of expressing yourself beyond words or traditional talking therapies. It can include visual arts therapy, writing, sand play, dance movement therapy, drama therapy and music therapy. Therapists may use different approaches at different times to suit the needs of the client. 

Mostly used with children but play therapy can also be a helpful way to work with adults. Play can be a useful tool to  express feelings and deal with emotional problems. It can help children to work through their anxieties, difficulties and experiences. Play is often a non verbal process which works with conscious and subconscious material.  ​

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.
