"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 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)
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
