About me

Seeking therapy is a sign of courage in the depths of conflict. Clients are often overwhelmed with anxiety, not knowing what is happening either within them, their partners or communicatively between their couple. To be understood and appreciated whilst conveying the same qualities to another person is an essential component of any satisfying relationship.

I have been fortunate, through my work in the private sector, to have a wealth of travel and personal experience behind me that has enabled me to meet people from various cultures, classes, countries and emotional dispositions. These experiences, alongside my training, serve to inform my practice with understanding, compassion and empathy within a robust therapeutic setting. I have a caring, compassionate character and aim to assist others who may be trying to turn inner conflicts into a reflective adulthood where experiences from the past can be viewed from a differing, conscious perspective. Consequently, promoting mental health and wellbeing.

I specialise in relationships with couples and include relationship therapy when seeing individuals. I welcome under-represented clients from the BAME, LGBT and cross-cultural/mixed-heritage communities. As well as private practice I also work as a Visiting Clinician and Assessor at Tavistock Relationships.

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.
