About me

Life can be unpredictable, challenging and frustrating.  If you have come this far you are probably looking for support and relief to enable you to function more fully in the world.

Therapy can help create space and perspective, a chance to breathe and take in experiences while being able to release others, and ultimately a sense of balance.  I work in an integrative way putting relationship at the centre of therapy. My approach involves Gestalt, mindfulness, psychodynamics, person-centred and other theories of well-being and psychotherapy.

You will be offered a non-judgemental space that is entirely yours in which your experience is valued and respected. You are unique, as is your experience and will be treated in this way.

Generally, the work together is open-ended meaning you can decide when to finish or we can organise a set number of sessions. Other than face to face counselling I am also trained in online therapy and I am a trained mindfulness teacher.
If you would like to discuss moving forward in your journey, feel free to get in touch.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (hons) in Social Psychology and after some years in other sectors I trained at the Gestalt Centre for my foundation and then at the Psychosynthesis Trust for PG Dip. I have further training in Online therapy, anxiety relief and a wide variety of holistic well-being modes. I assist teaching counselling as well as working with the NHS. Trained mindfulness teacher.

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.
