About me

“My therapy is designed to give you the tools and guidance to change the way you think, and help you see things more clearly, so you can be in control of your own progress. I always work at your pace, and my goal is for you to feel as comfortable as possible when opening up. We’re in this together!”

With vast experience in all areas of psychotherapy, including substance misuse, dealing with loss, abuse, and burnout. Space Therapies tackles what’s at the core of the issue, providing you with the support to work through them.

I am fiercely committed to supporting those who feel in limbo and believe person-centred therapy can facilitate the change you need.

Person-centred therapy is a 50-minute session that’s all about you. You’re the only one who knows what is happening in your mind and your life. I am are here to listen, to walk alongside you, and to understand what is happening for you. We’ll work together to achieve your hopes and create the outcome you want from your counselling journey.

Being given the space to step back and look at your life through another lens can be a game-changer. My person-centred approach is designed to meet you where you are at and support you in working through those issues that could be holding you back. Together, we’ll work towards meeting your needs, and moving you towards where you want to be.

I’ll help you to manifest change in your life and become more of your authentic self.

Member organisations

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.
