About me

I believe that childhood and adolescence should be characterised by carefreeness and happiness. High quality therapy and living a good life goes beyond overcoming challenges and fixing problems. It’s about thriving! Living a life of meaning that you are proud of, and feeling accepted and valued for who you are.


I aim to build a positive therapeutic relationship founded upon understanding and appreciation for the individual person and their circumstances. This enables me to work effectively in highly individualised, collaborative and creative ways to benefit clients. My therapeutic work is rooted in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) but as an integrative therapist I am able to draw on a number of different models and flexibly adapt my approach to meet the particular needs of individual clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have more than 800 hours of experience in providing short and long-term therapy for children, young people and their families (age range 6-25 years). I can provide therapeutic support for difficulties such as ADD/ADHD, Adjustment Difficulties, Anxiety, Depression, Gender Identity, OCD, Self-Harm and more.

I am a psychology graduate and prior to training as a psychotherapist I worked as a Healthcare Assistant and Assistant Psychologist within the NHS in both Adult and Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

  • I am committed to the ethical framework of the BACP
  • DBS checked
  • I am committed to continued professional development
  • I attend regular supervision

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.
