About me

I have 17 years of experience as an Integrative, BACP Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist. Throughout my career, I have provided over 6000 hours of counselling sessions, working with Children, Adolescents and Adults in Higher Education, the Third Sector/NGOs, and Tier 3 services across the United Kingdom.

I utilise clinical tools derived mainly from Integrative, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic, Creative, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Person-Centred counselling to address a wide array of difficulties.

I have a clinical interest in Boarding School Survivors (Also known as Privileged Abandonment) and Adult Children of Narcissistic Parents

My passion for counselling is to bring transformational change in clients through a relationship based on building safety and trust. I believe this is the foundation of connecting with the self and rediscovering true passion and purpose. 

Psychoeducation is an integral part of my practice, as I am a firm believer in empowering individuals with knowledge, not otherwise accessible through mainstream means.

Training, qualifications & experience

My relevant qualifications are:

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Supervision. 
  • MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
  • BSc (Hons) in Psychological Counselling and Guidance. 
  • Ongoing professional development in line with my area of interest.

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.

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).
