About me

Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to view my therapy profile. With several years of experience, I provide a caring and holistic approach to help individuals overcome their difficulties. My diverse background as an Integrative Counsellor combined with sensitivity and intuition, allows me to tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each individual. I am dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and individualized space for your  journey.

I specialize in working with a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, stress, and related issues. My compassionate environment will help you explore your worries and fears, gaining insight and developing effective strategies for managing them.

I understand that financial circumstances can be a consideration. Therefore, I offer concessions  who may require financial assistance. It is important to me that therapy is accessible to those who need it.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of working together, please feel free to contact me at 07521963342. I am available for an initial conversation to better understand your needs and explore how we can work together towards your goals.

To get started, you can reach out to me by calling . During our free phone conversation, which can take a few minutes or up to half an hour, depending on your preference, we can connect and determine if we are a good fit for each other. 

Should you be interested in pursuing therapy with me, I recommend an introductory session to establish a working relationship. In this session, I aim to learn more about you, your goals for therapy, and what you hope to gain from our work together. Likewise, it will provide you with a sense of who I am as a therapist and give you an experience of my therapeutic approach.

My goal is to provide you with a supportive and effective therapeutic experience, tailored to your unique circumstances. I am passionate about helping individuals make positive changes, improve their self-perception, and enhance the quality of their lives. Let's embark on this journey of growth and healing together.

Member organisations

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.
