I am a person-centred and experiential psychotherapist working with individuals to promote well-being, growth & self-development. I will listen carefully and skilfully to the details of your life & communicate with empathy and warmth so that you may develop a greater understanding of yourself.
You are the expert on your life, so I will work with you to explore your own resources and wisdom, in a non-judgemental way. In our sessions you can express the thoughts and feelings which you may keep hidden or supressed in other areas of your life, and I offer you the valuable opportunity to be truly and deeply listened to. We can work together to support you through your difficulties, and create opportunities for positive change in your life.
I am experienced in working with:
- Recent and historical grief and bereavement
- Serious and life-limiting illness (yours, or someone close to you)
- Depression and anxiety
- Low self-esteem and lack of self-worth
- Suicidal thoughts
- Relationship or family difficulties
- Working with diversity and difference
- Mental health diagnosis
- Post-traumatic growth
- Covid-19 stress, trauma and bereavement
- Student issues and study stress
- Narcissistic abuse
I can sign-post clients to resources, educational tools and further support where necessary and appropriate.
I am offering face-to-face sessions and online video sessions according to your needs so feel free to discuss this with me.

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.
