About me

Are you chronically tired, experiencing anxiety, depression, sleeping badly, poor appetite, no sex drive, your body carrying aches and pains? I believe as human beings we strive towards connection, understanding and growth. Our world is shaped by our deep desire to be known, seen and recognised. 

We strive to come into contact with parts of ourselves that maybe frozen, stuck or isolated suffering. Thwarted by deprivation, neglect, trauma or loss, the more profound and painful our longing to connect becomes. We all have a fundamental desire to grow and to heal. 

By providing a positive, responsive and safe therapeutic relationship focusing on the mind and body responses to trauma, it naturally produces chemicals and hormones, which enhance our ability to regulate our emotions, stress and neural firing. Thus promoting a change in feelings of depression, anxiety, loneliness or general malaise and link us to a path towards greater peace and inner fulfilment.

We work together by looking at how past events and relationships can affect how you think, feel and act. Noticing and questioning the somatic experiences of the body, helping to build up self esteem and providing a resilience to life's environmental influences. Working together in a safe and therapeutic frame applying self compassion, your mind and body will feel rejuvenated and you will begin to thrive instead of survive.

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.
