About me

Seeking therapy is a very powerful first step to overcoming life’s challenges. I can offer you a safe space for you to open up and share your troubles. Helping you acquire new coping skills and overcome obstacles in your path in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Our past life experiences can have a lasting effect on our current situations, leaving us sometimes even feeling hopeless about the future.

As a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and psychodrama therapist, I can facilitate your understanding of yourself and the issues that cause pain. Allowing space to draw on inherent strengths, build tools, heal the wounds, and provide a different way to live.

With the insight and skills you develop in therapy you will be better equipped to move through life without getting stuck on unhealthy patterns, feelings, or relationships.

As an integrative counsellor, I draw from various theoretical approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, transactional analysis, gestalt- therapy, transpersonal and psychodrama. Believing that each person has their unique path and needs, I adapt the therapy to better help the client at the present.

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.
