I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist. I have over 15 years’ experience working in mental health and social care settings. I have experience working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-worth, loneliness, relationship issues, loss and bereavement.
I have worked in the rehabilitation sector as part of the NHS helping people to understand and cope with, their behaviour whilst exploring deep-rooted feelings and belief systems. I have experience of working with people struggling to come to terms with chronic health conditions and managing the impact this has upon them and their families.
I hold particular interest and have experience working with survivors of domestic abuse and violence and the long term impact this can have on mental and physical health.
I offer a non-judgmental safe and confidential space in which to work, alongside a reparative, trusting and the therapeutic relationship
I have a consulting room in a quiet and discreet location in the centre of Market Harborough and in the centre of Leicester.
I currently offer evening and Saturday morning appointments. I also offer Single Session Therapy, this is a one off single session held for 90 minutes.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work
Day / evening appointments/ Saturday morning appointments
I take the health and safety of all my clients as well as my own very seriously. During these challenging times my aim is to continue delivering therapy uninterrupted as much as possible while preventing cross infection. My aim is to continue to provide face to face sessions for everyone who does not fall into the risk category eligible for self-isolation.
My consulting rooms are being disinfected after each use. I am kindly asking everyone to clean their hands with antibacterial gel/soap etc in order to maintain the therapeutic space keeping it as clean as possible for everyone.
I also offer remote options which are:
• A telephone call session
• Video conferencing session using end to end encrypted apps such as Zoom/skype
• Walking session in an outdoor setting (for those who do not fall into the risk category)
