I am a BACP registered integrative psychotherapist. I work with adults and young people who struggle with a wide range of issues. For some, this may be in response to a life event (eg relationship, work, illness, loss), whilst for others it may be a more enduring experience of finding life difficult.
How I work:
As an integrative psychotherapist I combine existential, humanistic and psychodynamic perspectives to meet the needs of individual clients. Most importantly, I seek to establish a warm and collaborative therapeutic relationship which provides a safe, contained and non-judgmental space for clients to work through their difficulties.
I have a particular interest in and experience of working with individuals who struggle with their relationship with food and body image. I am a HAES (Health at Every Size)-aligned certified Intuitive Eating counsellor.
I also worked as a secondary school teacher for 12 years and have an MA in Education and am therefore well-suited to working with adolescents, as well as adults.
Where I work:
I work from my first-floor consulting room, located in Jennett’s Park, Bracknell. Parking is available. Owing to the current COVID-19 situation, I have moved all of my sessions online until it is safe to return to in-person work.

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.

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).
