Therapy is a space for you: to feel understood and listened to. Perhaps for the first time. And it is through this fundamental encounter that you can feel more able and alive.
Our work together can support you in making a change, reflecting on painful experience, bearing a loss, finding a purpose. I can support you in these - and more - through creating new awareness, making helpful connections and finding a way forward. Therapy provides a way for you to understand, confront, resolve, heal and grow. I provide a safe, welcoming space for you to explore whatever it is that you need and want. In confidence and without judgement.
Our work will be a relationship that we create together, so that whatever you need and want feels more possible. In that relationship I value all that you are – unconditionally. I work with awareness and sensitivity to you as a person - your culture, heritage, race, body, disability, age, beliefs, gender, sex, orientation.
Training, qualifications & experience
As an Integrative therapist I draw on and incorporate a wide range of therapeutic ideas and practices, to offer you a way of working that is real and unique to you. Through my training, life and career experience I know that there are many ways to harness our strengths and resources - and together we will find the most enabling way forward for you.
I hold a BSc Honours Degree in Psychology and a BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling. I trained for 4 years at The Minster Centre, a leading educational institution for Integrative Psychotherapists, Counsellors and Supervisors. I have worked as both an assessor and counsellor for the Minster Centre therapy service. And for several years as a counsellor supporting individuals recovering from addiction, as well as family members who have been impacted by addiction. For 20 years I have also been a coach and trainer, specialising in communication and personal development.
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.

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).
