About me

Time for meaningful Change?

I offer individual therapy In- person; Online and Walk & Talk/ Eco therapy 

As an integrative warm holistic therapist, my approach is grounded in the belief that the mind, body, and spirit are interconnected and must be addressed together in order to achieve overall wellness. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic modalities and use an integrative approach to tailor my sessions to the unique needs of each individual client. My therapy sessions are warm and compassionate, providing a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their emotions and experiences.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, I may incorporate other techniques into my sessions, such as mindfulness, meditation, and somatic experiencing, to help clients connect with their bodies and develop greater self-awareness. I may also encourage clients to explore lifestyle changes that can support their mental and physical health.

For clients struggling with addiction, I draw upon approaches such as Motivational Interviewing, 12-Step principles and Relapse Prevention to help clients understand their addiction, identify triggers and patterns, and develop coping strategies.

I also work with clients to address any underlying mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression and trauma.

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.
