About me

Having worked as a counsellor / psychotherapist for over 10 yrs, I am experienced at treating emotional and psychological issues and with promoting inner growth and change. 'Change can only come about once we become who or what we truly are'. I aim to help you explore what feels real to yourself (your thoughts, feelings and attitudes) so that you can develop insight into who you are. In meeting yourself - with your raw emotions and vulnerabilities - you can gain the clarity, strength and courage to meet life (and others) with greater authenticity and well-being.

I offer evidence-based psychotherapy, which is personalised and tailored to meet your needs. I aim to help you attain the goals you are striving for, by providing you with a warm, accepting and supportive space, where together we can explore your issues in depth. I am committed to developing a therapeutic relationship with you that is non-judgemental, confidential and safe.

My approach is integrative-transpersonal, which means, I work by combining a whole range of therapeutic approaches and techniques, such as psychodynamic, gestalt, transactional analysis, cognitive-behavioural, client-centred, existential and also, transpersonal.

Psychotherapy can enable you to have a deepened awareness of yourself, your relationship patterns and the choices available to you in the present. Through a recreation of your past, it can help you to gain understanding and insight into the origins of your disturbing issues, be they emotional, psychological or relational. Increasing awareness along with a range of helpful strategies and techniques, in turn, can help you to work through your difficulties.

Couples Therapy
My work with couples and other relationships involves an exploration of the relationship issues and difficulties, including attitudes towards differences within the relationship. Other aspects of my work include exploration of needs and feelings, making unconscious beliefs and expectations conscious, paying attention to communication difficulties and providing training in healthier communication skills, conflict resolution, establishing greater understanding and empathy within the relationship, maintaining healthy boundaries.

Trauma Therapy
Within the context of a safe and trusting relationship with clients, in which healing becomes possible, I follow the ‘tri-phasic model’ in my work towards trauma recovery:
Phase 1) Safety and Stabilisation.
Phase 2) Reprocessing the Memories (clearing the past charge).
Phase 3) Integration, Meaning and Growth (forward-facing).
I am trained in the use of treatment protocols such as TF-CBT (Trauma Focussed - Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), IRRT (Imagery Rescripting and Reprocessing Therapy) and NET (Narrative Exposure Therapy). Each of these interventions have a strong evidence-base for trauma recovery.

I am respectful of individual and cultural differences, whether of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or any other difference.

I offer weekly sessions of 50 mins duration to individuals, which can be either face-to-face or online (via Zoom). These sessions may be short-term (time-limited) or longer term, depending upon your individual needs.

I also offer counselling sessions to couples, which are of 75 mins duration and can be weekly or every alternate week.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
