About me

Approachable | Non-Judgmental | Transformative.  I truly practise with this in mind.  So what happens? I arrange a free 15 minute call introducing myself.  We can then schedule our first therapy session.

At our first session, I ask you why you’ve come to therapy, what you want to work on and what your end goals are.

Then I truly listen to your story – where you came from and what you’re going through. I ask questions that help me learn about your struggles and your strengths.

We can tackle together a variety of issues that's bothering you, this could include:

  • Lack of self-compassion and being hard on yourself
  • Anxiety and excessive worry
  • People-pleasing and being the "fixer"
  • Lack of general fulfilment and meaning
  • Perfectionism
  • Struggle with relationships

Together, we define the problem in whatever way works best, but I will not label you as the problem. There’s nothing wrong with you – you’ve just learned to survive the best way you know how.

We'll work together to rewrite your story, tackle those unwanted patterns, and find new ways of being so that you can have a better sense of well-being on YOUR terms.

Are you ready? If you put in the time, the effort, and the work during the therapy process, you will absolutely be transformed.

If you're looking for a warm and friendly therapist, why not drop me a line?

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.
