About me

You may have landed on this page because something isn't feeling right. You may be feeling anxious, depressed, or stuck. Perhaps, you’re struggling with finding your voice, exploring your identity or trying to navigate the intricate terrain of emotions, trauma, and loss. The world can be a tough place. Having a space to sit and turn inwards is essential. In therapy, we will look at who you are, what you want, and what you need.

As a psychodynamic therapist, I aim to create a safe and comfortable space for self-exploration. I won't just sit passively; I'll actively engage with you. We will work together to start unpacking parts of your story. We will sit with difficult emotions and turn towards them to get insight.

Starting therapy can feel daunting. There are many options for therapists, specialties, and approaches. I offer 15 minute complimentary consultations to check for fit.  

If you’re feeling called, I hope to hear from you.

With Warmth,

Training, qualifications & experience

Bachelors of Arts in Sociology (York University)

Masters in Counselling Psychology (Yorkville University) 

Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

Member organisations

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.
