About me

It takes a great deal of courage to seek out help and support at difficult times in our lives. If you’re here reading this and wondering if you might benefit from therapy, then you’ve already taken a huge step.

Perhaps you’re here because you’ve recently experienced a bereavement, breakdown of a relationship or illness. Or maybe you would like a space to explore patterns of behaviour and ways of being in the world that you realise no longer serve you. Therapy can offer a space for insight, understanding, growth and change. I believe that we all have the capacity to flourish and that therapy can offer an opportunity to open up new ways of being in the world and connecting with ourselves and those around us.

I am aware that the process of finding the right therapist can often feel incredibly daunting. I offer a compassionate, safe, confidential space free of judgement where we can work together to understand and untangle whatever difficulties you’re facing. I strive to be honest, reflective, open and curious in our work and welcome clients of all genders, sexualities, race and religions.

My approach to therapy is integrative, which means that I am trained in a range of therapeutic methods and tailor my work to reflect your needs. We will work together to create an environment in which we can approach your experience flexibly and creatively. I believe in working relationally, which means that I use the relationship we build together as a doorway into understanding other relationships in your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have many years of experience in a wide range of settings including the NHS and low-cost therapy services working with issues including but not limited to: self-esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, bereavement, identity & belonging, domestic abuse and boarding school survivors.

I offer one-to-one therapy for adults on a short (6-20 sessions) or open-ended basis.

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from The Minster Centre. I am also a registered member of the BACP (registration number 00726317) and adhere to the BACP Codes of Ethical Practice. I also hold a BSc in Psychology.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
