About me

Hi, well done for getting this far.

Most people at some point in their lives need someone they can talk to that will understand and support them in a safe and confidential space. Our time together will help you come to terms, to explore and to grow. Through our work, a sense of love for self should blossom, and peace should take place of where there was once anxiety.  

I draw upon a wide range of techniques to best suit the presenting issues we need to look at. Whatever it is that's causing pain and conflict, we will face together and at a safe pace, try to unravel, and make sense of it all, until calm and acceptance take over from unsettling feelings, which are holding you back from living the life you want to lead.

I am passionate about empowering my clients to break free from cyclical patterns of thinking and behaviours, which often stem from what is experienced in childhood.

I specialise in supporting people who have suffered childhood abuse and addiction. I worked for two years in an abstinence based organisation, and have about 10 years experience working with family members who had a range of complex needs. I have extensive experience supporting a wide range of individuals with a plethora of needs. There is nothing that cannot be brought to our space, we will sit with what is and find a way to help you accept and heal from the pain you want to be free from. 

Working holistically and creatively is also part of my professional make up, ensuring each journey is unique. I offer short and long term therapy and have some concession spaces available.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Certificate in Humanistic Integrative Therapy
  • Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Therapy
  • Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Therapy
  • Certificate working with troubled young people
  • Solution Focused Therapy


I have a strong working background working in social care, with hard to reach client groups, disabled and terminally ill children, and adults struggling with addiction. I have a proven track record of helping clients achieve their goals in therapy and together we have created life changing work.

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.

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).
