About me

Mental health is hugely important for living as productively as we can and therapy can be a very powerful way to start the process of change and living a healthier life.

My approach to therapy is that we should think of getting support for our mental health the same as we would our physical health; if our aches and pains are making life difficult then we contact the GP, but if our mental health is causing us pain then we tend to suffer in silence. 

Therapy can be for everyone; it is often felt that seeking help is a sign of weakness or only for the severely distressed, but many people lead busy, chaotic lives and just having the space to process this can be hugely helpful. Feeling stuck and not knowing how to move forward is often the reason people seek support.

As an integrative therapist, I integrate different styles of therapy. I believe that as we are all different, the therapy we receive should reflect this. My training therefore allows me to work with many different issues using interventions mainly around Solution Focused (working on goals and solutions to issues), Person Centred (more of an exploratory, open ended type of therapy) or CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - looking at coping strategies and how challenging thought processes can help to reduce unhelpful behaviours or changes in moods).

I integrate some of my work with transformational coaching - a powerful way of exploring personal beliefs and values and how they shape our experience of life and our behaviours. I am a Mindfulness practitioner, regularly running the 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program to help reduce stress and anxiety. This experience combines to create a collaborative and dynamic space in which to explore thoughts, challenges and shape outcomes and goals for those looking for positive, productive change.

I work as collaboratively as possible and aim to empower my clients with the tools needed to foster change. I want to help empowerment my clients with a renewed outlook, increased self awareness, and a toolkit of coping strategies to help deal with life's encounters outside of the therapy room.

Working within private practice, the NHS, mental health settings and the business world, I am able to draw on many angles when supporting people in finding ways to move forward from their difficulties. To begin your journey of change, please feel free to contact me.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
