About me

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.  My name is Magna and I have been a therapist for over 11 years.  During this time I have help many clients change their thinking, take control of their lives and become who they want to be.  I have helped clients work through trauma by not just hearing their stories but also helped them reclaim their lives to live life to the full.  I believe that hearing your story is a powerful pathway to healing.  

I am an emotions therapist. I love to talk with people about their feelings, purpose, meaning and pretty much anything that life offers, good and bad.  Many years of experience in helping people unlock the truth about themselves, lives, hopes and dreams have taught me we never stop needing to connect to ourselves and others.  I have learned that we need to talk about our pain to heal.  And I know the importance of telling our story, feeling understood, and healing old wounds. The purpose of my work is to support emotional well-being, nurture hope, compassion and healing.

I offer integrative therapy (which basically means I tailor the treatment to suit your needs).  I have many years of experience working with addictions, trauma, sexual abuse, issues with food (overeating and bulimia), depression and anxiety.  I work extensively on helping clients heal emotionally, form better relationships with themselves and others.

I offer both short and long term therapy, once or twice a week, depending on your need.  Therefor you can see me for as long as you need.

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.
