About me

I am a person centred, relational and integrative psychotherapist providing services via different formats, such as face-to-face and video call sessions. Perhaps you are feeling down or anxious- maybe you are unsure about the future, or just feel that you are not living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery and in my sessions, I promote transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I provide you with a safe space to reflect on your past experiences and experience associated feelings. I only shed the light, it is you who navigates.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Level 7.

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.
