About me

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. 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.

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.

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.

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.
