About me

Hi, I know life can be difficult at times. Maybe you feel anxious or depressed or maybe you’re distressed by a life event. Together, we can work in a transparent and collaborative way to address your issues and set your goals. I am friendly and easy to talk to, and I will explain how I am working with you, so you understand the process.

From 2013 to 2018, I studied at a United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy accredited Level 7 course in Integrative Psychotherapy. This psycho-therapeutic approach covers many therapies including Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic, Behavioural, Cognitive, Embodied, Transpersonal, Existential, Relational, Gestalt, Systemic and Neuroscience. I can combine several psycho-therapeutic approaches to tailor our work together, specifically for you.

I have many years of Counselling and Psychotherapy experience for the National Health Service, for Councils, for private companies, and in private practice. I have worked in mental health settings and in the community. I have experience in the National Health Service as a Psychologist in mental health, neuro-rehabilitation and addiction services.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UKCP

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.

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.

What to expect from your first session:

We will meet together and I will ask a few questions to gather information about you and your life experiences. I will record a few basic pieces of information which I will store securely in line with GDPR regulations. We may then contract on goals of therapy and I will explain how and why we may work together and about confidentiality in sessions.
