About me

Hi there and welcome to my profile.

Whatever brings you to therapy, we can work together to explore and make sense of your feelings, consider your choices, develop new perspectives on the past and build your resilience and resources.

My approach to counselling is founded on working uniquely with you, exploring what feels overwhelming and working together to bring about positive and meaningful changes to your life. By reducing your stress to a manageable level and increasing your positivity we will work on helping you cope again and enjoying every aspect of your life and relationships.

As an integrative therapist, my training and background allow me to draw on a diverse range of approaches to meet your needs, including person-centred and CBT. I also work with couples for relationship counselling.

I am experienced working with anxiety, stress, bereavement, depression, OCD, relationship problems, insomnia, and anger management. Our work together can help find healthy coping mechanisms, develop self-awareness, improved problem solving, better communication, and identifying bad habits or a wrong direction.

I am a fully qualified and registered Psychotherapist with a friendly, calm and reassuring manner that will help you feel at ease. I can offer you a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space for you to explore your feelings. I adhere to the BACP code of ethical standards and conduct, including undertaking supervision and continuous professional development.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a post graduate diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling and I am a registered member of the BACP.  I also have a degree in Psychology.

I previously worked for a large mental health service.

As well as having a busy private practice, I also work for a large EAP company (employer assistance programme) as a counselling associate. 

I volunteer for a large bereavement support charity and am a qualified bereavement support specialist.

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.
