My therapeutic approach blends person-centred therapy with mindfulness, offering a nurturing space to explore your inner world safely with compassion and authenticity. Whether you're facing anxiety, depression, low mood, or seeking deeper fulfilment, I am here to support you with warmth and empathy.

I regularly train to stay abreast of the latest advancements in the field, ensuring that I have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide compassionate, evidence-based care tailored to the unique needs of everyone I work with.

I am deeply passionate about the transformative power of therapy and honoured to support individuals on their path to wellness.

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.
