Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor - AdDip, MBACP

About me

We all experience times when life becomes emotionally overwhelming and difficult to manage. Therapy is a confidential space. I’m not here to judge or offer advice. I’m here to listen and to help you navigate the changes you want to make in order to grow and move forward in your life. I can support you to consider how your past experiences inform you today and how they might impact your future, whilst bringing attention to your present body sensations and awareness, for deeper exploration. I believe that therapy is a creative and collaborative process; a unique and co-created space. I don’t advocate that one size fits all.

I work integratively, which means that I integrate a wide range of therapeutic approaches. I adapt my approach to align with you and what you want to gain from therapy. I am grounded in humanistic and psychodynamic theory and hold principles of body psychotherapy in mind when attuning somatically and energetically to our process’. I would like to support you to experiment with a different narrative; to discover unacknowledged parts of yourself; to feel more alive and at home within your body. The core to my approach is cultivating a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship.

I have worked with my clients on issues such as anxiety, bereavement and loss, sexuality and gender, relationships, panic attacks, existential issues, phobias, depression, and employment transitions.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as working in private practice, I have over seven years experience of working within the field of mental health. I have used recovery-oriented practices and have worked with many people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. I helped people through difficult life transitions, enabling ways to develop confidence and self-esteem.

I have completed my clinical training in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (PGDip, AdDip) and I am currently completing my M.A. both awarded by the Minster Centre in London.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Additional information

If you are returning to therapy or starting therapy for the first time then I understand that this can be a daunting process. I will do my best to make you feel as comfortable as possible. In our initial meeting, we will start by getting to know one another and having a chat about anything you want to talk about.

Sessions will usually last for 50 minutes, at the same time each week online or in-person. My fee per session is £70 and I charge a reduced rate of £35 for our initial consultation.

If you would like to book an initial session or to ask me any questions, please contact me.
