About me

I am one half of Different Therapy; distinct, individual, diverse - celebrating & embracing difference in our clients. My passion for this very privileged work constantly grows as I see the difference it makes to the lives of others. Life has a way of making us trip up on unresolved issues we have often packed away; we'll work together to explore whatever has brought you my way. Whether you are an individual or a couple, I believe you have the power within yourself to make change. I aim to support you to understand yourself and your choices better, reach your goals, improve your communication & manage conflict.

The impact of childhood trauma has a lasting effect on us & as a trauma informed therapist I have a keen interest in helping adults work through such experiences. As a GSRD & sex-positive therapist I have much experience & training in working with all aspects of LGBTQIA+, kink & non-monogamy. I continually train to ensure an inclusive therapeutic experience

I am aware of how often we find ourselves hiding parts of us so that we'll fit in or be accepted. In my therapy, every difference is welcomed. You will find a down to earth, welcoming space, where you can be your true self; and maybe, at the moment, you are unsure of who your true self is. We will work together to uncover the true authentic you.

I am a qualified, registered member of BACP and NSC accredited. I am happy to answer any questions about my experience and my training

I am able to offer face to face, video and telephone counselling to suit your individual needs.

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.
