I am an integrative counsellor using different theories such as psychodynamic, person-centered, CBT, mindfulness, energy therapy. I work with issues on work-related stress, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bereavement, eating disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, OCD and many more. We will work together to help you work through your difficulty, find new ways of dealing with stress and teach you coping techniques to help you recover.
I offer a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and emotions that you feel are causing you to feel stuck and affecting your ability to reach your full potential. You can expect a warm environment and connection to help you gain insight into your personal issues and gain the ability to move forward.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work
What can I expect from the first session?I
It is understandable that you may feel nervous and uncomfortable the first time we meet. Crucially, it is very important to find the 'right fit' in terms of counsellor in order to feel it is ok to be vulnerable and to feel accepted for who you are.
The first session gives you the opportunity to meet me and ask any questions you may have before deciding if you want to continue with me as your counsellor. It also gives me a chance to find out more about you and what issues you are bringing as well as giving me an idea of your goals and expectations.
At the end of this initial session, you can then decide if you would like to commit to a regular weekly time to meet.
Your session time is reserved each week for you and I require 48hours for cancellation.
My preferred method of contact is by email and text. Please leave a message and I aim to return your enquiry within 48 hours.
