Trauma specialist psychotherapist. Providing a safe space to truly be yourself. NHS experienced therapist prioritising your mental health and managing symptoms such as anxiety and depression, to help you grow and navigate through life. Workshop consultant focusing on wellbeing; working with stress, burnout, identity/cultural and family issues. Life is a journey where we all experience trials and tribulations. Sometimes we have experiences that make us question ourselves and the world around us. At times we face difficulties consciously and subconsciously that we find challenging to unpack and resolve. These experiences can make us feel isolated, confused or at times we may even be unable to identify what we are feeling. As an integrative psychotherapist, I engage in various approaches suited to the client's needs. Grounding in person centred practice, I will work with you to explore and identify where you are on your journey.
I use various approaches such as psychodynamic and CBT to explore past experiences, behaviours and thinking patterns. Depending on your needs, I may use various tools and techniques in our sessions to guide you.Therapy can initially feel daunting and sometimes awkward. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space, to give you the time to work at your pace, where you can eventually feel safe enough to truly be yourself. There is no deadline, no expectations, our sessions will be about you and your needs.

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.

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).
