About me

As a trained psychotherapist and coach I am able to work in many different areas, often including: increasing self-awareness and confidence, understanding conflict, communication and family dynamics, setting healthy boundaries, understanding and managing anxiety, grief and loss, low mood, and many more. 

Therapeutic coaching is a process of self discovery and intentional growth. Working with each individual in a unique way, I typically encourage deep, exploratory conversations to really help you gain clarity over your thoughts, feelings and emotions. These discussions can reveal what might be holding you back or keeping you stuck in repeating patterns and behaviours that you’re finding unhelpful. I am able to draw on a number of tools from my therapy and coaching training to help you understand, process and develop new skills. 

Sometimes, we need the space to grieve, vent, process and heal; therapy can be about deep healing work and understanding the past in order to do this, but it can also be about working through and processing some difficult emotions if you're feeling stuck, unhappy and keep repeating behaviours that aren't helpful. In essence, therapy is about feeling better.

Other times we may want to understand, gain clarity, and figure out a plan of action to move forward. Coaching is about goals, change and working towards a preferred future, and providing the structure to get there. Coaching then, is about doing better. Often, these two modalities work really well together, working at depth as well as offering an energetic, motivated space to move forward. 

Therapeutic coaching as a blended approach can help you to achieve your future-focused goals, while providing the benefits of traditional therapy. It can give you clarity about where you are now, where you would like to be and what is getting in the way, whilst providing you with effective tools to gently work through those obstacles (which we often come across along the way), so that you can move towards the change you want to experience.

I aim to empower my clients with a toolkit of skills and coping strategies, a renewed outlook, and increased self-awareness to help with life's challenges outside of the therapy room. Typically, I work with tools such as strengths and values, CBT skills to help improve the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours, visualisation techniques, transactional analysis, inner child work and many more. But what is more important than any tool or skill is the ability to deeply listen, and provide the space for you to understand your own thoughts and feelings in a way you may not experience in any other relationship. This is where therapy is a fundamental part of the change process. 

Working within private practice, the NHS, mental health settings and the business world, I am able to draw on many approaches when helping my clients find ways to change. If you want to make changes to your life but you're unsure how, feel free to get in touch to explore how we can work together to start the journey.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

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.
