About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist, an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy & Counselling (FPC). I see adults for short and long-term work.

 My approach is to provide a safe, calm space for you to talk. The underlying causes of our emotional distress in the present often lie in the past where we develop unhelpful coping mechanisms, destructive ways of being and relating which we unconsciously carry into adulthood and that prevent us from becoming our fulfilled selves. 

By creating a space in therapy to explore and understand this, we can develop the capacity to relate to our personal narrative, our experiences, memories, feelings, beliefs and relationships in a more reflective yet active way, leading to greater awareness, self-acceptance and the possibility of lasting, positive change.

At an initial consultation you can tell me about yourself and why you are seeking therapy, get a sense as to whether you would feel comfortable working with me going forward and I can begin to think around your individual therapeutic needs.


Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a rigorous 5 year professional training at WPF Therapy, one of the leading academic and clinical institutions for psychotherapy in the UK and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy accredited by Roehampton University.

I have many years experience working with adults around anxiety, depression, relationship and family difficulties, loss and trauma including adult survivors of sexual abuse, work stress, stagnation, low self esteem and identity struggles.  I also have an interest in the emotional challenges of pregnancy, fertility, infant loss, birth trauma and parenthood.  

I am currently working in private practice and have previously worked as a clinical assessor in the charitable sector.

I have experience of working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds in terms of age, sexual orientation, ethnicity & cultural background.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
