About me

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.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Please note that doors to the therapy rooms are standard size.
