About me

You might be looking for therapy because you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck and repeating old patterns of behaviour, or maybe you simply need some space to work out what it is you are feeling. 

Whatever the catalyst has been, therapy can help you unpack the issues you are experiencing in a supportive and non-judgemental space. 

I have worked with a wide variety of issues over the years from an equally broad range of clients, so whilst the below list is not exhaustive, it aims to provide you with some of the issues that I work with most frequently:

  • Anxiety and worry
  • Anger and conflict
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Boarding school experiences
  • Childhood abuse
  • Depression and low mood
  • Disordered eating and body image
  • Expat related issues
  • Family relationships: estrangement, divorce, infidelity
  • Health: health anxiety, chronic illness
  • Low self-esteem and not feeling good enough 
  • Feeling overwhelmed and experiencing panic
  • Parenting issues
  • PTSD
  • Relationships and dating
  • Work and career: managing stress and pressure

I am an integrative therapist - this simply means that I trained in a variety of different therapeutic approaches. The benefit of being an integrative therapist is that I can be adaptable and flexible in terms of what each individual client needs. 

My way of working is underpinned by developmental and attachment thinking which takes into consideration how our early lives and relationships may be influencing us and playing out in the present. I work in a relational way which means that I’ll be curious about what relationships are like for you broadly, as well as valuing the importance of the relationship we are able to build in therapy together.

My approach is trauma-informed and as such I seek to create a safe, transparent and trusting space. Linked to this is an integration of body psychotherapy which means I hold an awareness of the mind-body connection which is essential in regulating our nervous systems. 

I approach all client work with empathy; this means I will seek to understand you and your experiences without judgement. I find compassion and curiosity to also be key tools, but primarily I seek to establish trust with my clients, as the success of the therapeutic outcome is based on the quality of the relationship between client and therapist. 

During a therapy session, we can explore the nature of the challenges you’re facing, discover the roots of your response and find new ways of managing feelings. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified Integrative Therapist, MBACP.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). 

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre - a UKCP registered training institute for Integrative therapy. 

I adhere to the BACP ethical guidelines and standards which includes ongoing supervision and continued professional development.

I undertake regular further training to support my practice. 

As well as my work in private practice, I have also worked at a low-cost therapy charity in London as well as within an NHS counselling service. 

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.

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).
