About me

I provide a welcoming, supportive, understanding and non-judgmental safe haven in-which to explore any emotions, feelings or concerns you may have.

As a fully registered and accredited UKCP Psychotherapist and a registered member of the BACP, I have a vast experience of various concerns in private, NHS and public clinics. My varied experience has permitted me to meet a diverse spectrum of clients with varied backgrounds and presenting concerns.

It may be that you find yourself censoring your feelings and communication with others for fear of burdening them or being judged. Otherwise, you may wish to find a therapist to help you to explore hard to talk about subjects, thoughts or histories. You may wish to  empower yourself or focus on changing habitual behavioural patterns.

My consulting room is based on the principles of mutual trust, connection, committment and respect.

Talking Therapy offer a unique opportunity to contemplate your concerns and address your needs in a confidential setting. I am trained in listening and interpreting your thoughts and feelings.  Together, we can safely and effectively consider anything you wish to share leaving you less burdened and improving your wellbeing.

My Integrative approach to Psychotherapy, has provided me with an extensive foundation of perspectives and psychological philosophies.

Prior to my psychotherapeutic training, I worked in the Corporate world, managing high net-worth international clients. This provides me with a unique understanding of working across all sectors.

I see individuals and couples.

Training, qualifications & experience

Approach:

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor. My training required that I study each major school of thought. This included Psychoanalytic, Humanistic, Systemic, Existential and Transpersonal theories. My chosen approach, has provided me with an extensive foundation of perspectives and psychological philosophies. In my everyday work my main influences are the Systemic, Psychoanalytic, Humanistic and Jungian methodologies. However, as I have been extensively trained in other approaches, I am able to integrate other modality such as CBT, if I feel these will be of benefit to the client. Working integratively, allows me to combine my theoretical knowledge to support the clients’ individual needs. With a broader breath of knowledge, I am able to take a less dogmatic approach to my work and my client.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
