About me

Are you seeking a compassionate and skilled psychologist to support you through life's challenges? As an HCPC-registered counselling psychologist, I offer a blend of evidence-based therapies tailored to your unique needs. With extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, and Person-Centred Therapy, I also incorporate techniques from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-CBT, and Trauma-Focused Therapy to provide a comprehensive approach to healing.

My practice is dedicated to helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship issues. I particularly enjoy working with autistic people, ADHDers, and dyslexic people, and my doctoral research included exploring autistic psychologists' experiences of inclusion and acceptance. With a unique background as an actuary and accountant, I have a special interest in working with clients with a financial background or in financial therapy, exploring the interplay between financial aspects of life and psychological health. This allows me to support clients facing financial stressors with a deeper understanding of their impact on mental well-being.

In our sessions, you can expect a flexible and holistic approach. After a thorough assessment, we will collaborate to identify your concerns and set achievable goals. My utmost priority is to create a safe, non-judgmental environment where you feel understood and supported. Building a strong, trust-based relationship is the foundation for effective therapy, and I am committed to fostering this environment in our work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include a doctorate in counselling psychology, a master's in person-centred therapy, and a degree in psychology, which I obtained as a mature student in the last 10 years. I also have a degree in Mathematics from Oxford University and extensive experience as a fully qualified actuary and accountant. Over the course of 20 years, I have mentored and coached finance professionals, and volunteered to support young adults in higher education. My journey to psychology as a second career has enriched my practice, allowing me to draw from diverse life experiences and a deep respect for those seeking personal growth. This wealth of experience and qualifications underpin my practice, ensuring that you receive the highest standard of care.

I have worked as a psychotherapist in the third sector and large private practices, and I bring a global perspective from living and working overseas for 10 years. My research interests include long-term health issues, therapy in outdoor settings, and the experiences of neurodivergent psychologists.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

HCPC
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
