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 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.
