About me

Are things not going right in your life right now? Are you falling into the same destructive patterns in certain areas of your life? Are you feeling overwhelmed at finding a therapist? I’m here to keep the process as simple as possible.

How to get started with therapy with me.

  • Step 1: Call or email me to set up a FREE 15-minute consultation.
  • Step 2: During the consultation, explain what is going on for you and how you think therapy may help.
  • Step 3: If you feel comfortable and happy to continue, we will book you in for your first session. 
  • Step 4: During your first session, we will talk in more detail about your issues. If you are happy to continue, we will book you in for your second session on a weekly/fortnightly basis. 

How I work:

Welcome to 101 Transformation, where compassionate counselling meets expertise! As a highly qualified BACP Integrative Psychotherapist, I specialise in empowering individuals to overcome personal challenges and mental health issues. I qualified in 2018, and my commitment to continuous learning has led me to pursue a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy. I bring a depth of knowledge and practical experience to the table. Qualifications are listed below. 

My approach is integrative, blending evidence-based practices to create tailored solutions for diverse client needs. I have a proven track record of guiding clients towards positive changes, whether it is breaking free from negative mindsets or achieving personal goals.

Moreover, I am experienced in working with individuals dealing with ADHD, autism, acute PMS, and PMDD. My practice is built on empathy, confidentiality, and a commitment to providing a caring and comfortable environment.

At 101 Transformation, your journey towards personal growth and mental well-being begins. Book a session today and embark on a transformative experience towards realising your true potential.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
