About me

Prior to my counselling and psychotherapy training, my background was in psychology.  I am an integrative psychotherapist, adapting to your individuality by blending multiple methods and theories including (but not limited to) person-centred therapy, attachment theory, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and compassion focused therapy.

Sessions will provide a non-judgmental, empathetic and confidential space where you feel able to explore more of yourself and share any difficulties you are experiencing, as this facilitates achieving your therapeutic goals.

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.
