What I provide:
I will give you the time to safely explore what is important to you in the moment. I will be non-judgemental and open, so at your pace, we can make exploring the uncomfortable as comfortable as possible.
The therapeutic relationship can help you to begin to heal and I acknowledge the immense courage you have taken to seek help.
Therapy is collaborative, something that is done together, not something that is done to you which is why I will not tell you what to do, but I will support you to find a way forward. My aim is to tailor the therapy to you and your needs, to maintain boundaries, as well as remaining respectful and authentic no matter who you are.
“Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need. To talk about how you’re feeling. To have the hard conversations.” – Brene Brown
How I can help:
I provide online therapy over video call so you can feel supported wherever you are.
Sometimes understanding what we feel, why we feel it and where this comes from can help us to heal. We can then move forward by making conscious choices that improve our wellbeing.
Other times, going into the depths of our emotions and past can feel frightening and overwhelming so you may not want to do this, and in this case we can work together to support you to find coping mechanisms for the symptoms that you are experiencing.

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
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.
