About me

As an experienced integrative therapist, I draw on a range of different approaches, including CBT, existential, humanistic and psychodynamic, to provide therapy tailored to you as an individual in a warm, safe and non-judgmental space.

I work with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work, stress, identity, family history, trauma, self-esteem, negative thought patterns, feeling stuck, shame, unhelpful behaviours and self-beliefs, transition and loss.

Therapy can be a space to make sense of difficult and confusing feelings and to explore the challenges of finding one’s place in the world. I work collaboratively with you to focus on your needs, so that together we can draw out your innate resilience and self-compassion. My approach is open-ended and client-focused, giving us time to develop a strong therapeutic relationship in which it is safe to explore your feelings and help you make sense of your life’s narrative.

Whatever you are facing, please get in touch to discuss how we might work together.


Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical principles; and I have many years of experience working with younger adults in a range of settings, giving me an understanding of the challenges of finding one's place in the world at this life stage. I have particular experience with narcissistic abuse, emotional neglect, anxious and negative thought patterns, perfectionism and finding meaning in one's life. I have worked for NHS IAPT and I currently manage a local counselling service.

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.
