About me

Hello and welcome,

I am an integrative trauma-informed counsellor working in central Bath and online.

I am experienced in working one to one with young adults (18-35). I help clients manage and lessen the physical and psychological impacts of trauma, whether that is a single incident event (a car accident or a sexual assault or a sudden bereavement for example) or complex trauma including multiple traumatic incidents over time and historic sexual, physical, emotional abuse or neglect.

I integrate a traditional talking therapy approach with Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which involves working in a mindful way with thoughts, feelings, sensations and movement. I am also trained in EMDR and draw from various other trauma informed models. 

I shape my way of working to best suit your needs. We will discuss this at your initial session. At all times we will work at your pace and in a way that feels comfortable for you. 

Have a look at my website and send me an email if you think that my approach is right for you at this time. 

I look forward to hearing from you,

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
