It can be challenging navigating through the choppy waters of life. You may be stuck in cycles of behaviour or coping strategies that feel difficult to change or don't seem to serve you well anymore. Life events may have de-stabilised you or you are struggling to reach your full potential or don't know where to find it.
I am trained as an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist and have an MA in transpersonal psychotherapy and counselling. Working integratively means that I pull on the different schools of psychotherapy to help tailor the therapy to your unique and individual needs. The transpersonal perspective underpins my practice where the transpersonal addresses all aspects of our being - spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional, physical and creative. Valuing our wholeness, rather than just individual parts facilitates the journey of personal growth and healing.
In your therapy journey, I will use my knowledge and techniques to guide and walk beside you. I will help you to engage with your inner resources to create a sense of balance and harmony and ultimately to lead a more fulfilling and rich life.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental space where my qualities of warmth, gentleness and empathy help support personal exploration. I work with issues such as depression; anxiety; life crisis; emotional, physical or sexual abuse; stress; relationships; self-esteem issues; illness and terminal illness; bereavement; loss and sexuality.
I am currently undertaking additional training to specialise in couples therapy and am therefore available for concessionary rates for couples clients.
I offer face-to-face or remote sessions via Zoom.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
