"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing."
Most of our day-to-day life is spent on tasks that, in the larger scheme of things, have little existential significance. But when you’re suffering with mental health, everyday tasks bear the heavy burden of existential struggle.
The motivation that once brought about the strength to carry on has lost its edge, and now you find yourself stumbling along a path that is unclear and foreign to you.
I’m here for that. As your Counsellor, I guide you along that path as we illuminate the shadows. Together we come to understand whatever may plague your mind, without judgment, and seek new avenues forward, toward a future where it is easier to live and breathe.
Or perhaps, find that piece of yourself that had laid dormant or never recognised existed.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I draw upon several schools of Counselling/Psychotherapy to tailor an approach to best suit each client’s unique needs.
I work comfortably with many issues that bring people to counselling, such as grief, depression, and anxiety. However, I am most sought out for my expertise in trauma, particularly trauma endured in childhood.
I have a long history, both personal and professional, with the Social Care System as well as experience in the Youth Justice System, which has given me a deep understanding of the impacts these systems can have on individuals. My work has also been informed by firsthand experiences of discrimination based on disability and cultural differences. I specialize in working with clients who have experienced any of the following:
- Abuse (both emotional and physical)
- Low self-esteem
- Domestic abuse
- Victims of Narcissists
- Gang Violence
- Childhood Trauma

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
