About me

Free 15-minute phone consultation.

As you'll have your own unique reasons for therapy, I encourage you to have an initial assessment session to find out whether I'm the right therapist for you, and for me to find out more about your needs.

I offer eye movement depersonalisation and reprocessing (EMDR) as well as counselling. EMDR is an evidence-based therapy that's effective for people experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or trauma-related problems. It's also useful for low-self esteem, anger, anxiety, phobias or other issues.

I work with people from all backgrounds.

I'm interested in:

- helping form or strengthen your own individual narrative and identity
- looking at how the unconscious and childhood is impacting on the present
- helping improve self-esteem

At the heart of my approach is a belief in your capacity to overcome difficulties. I also believe that, and as shown by evidence, the client-counsellor relationship itself is the most significant factor when it comes to lasting change and healing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the Association for Online and Telephone Counselling (ACTO).

I have been practising since 2016. I hold:

  • EMDR practitioner status, recognised by the EMDR Association UK
  • Attachment-focused EMDR training
  • an advanced diploma in humanistic integrative counselling
  • a foundation certificate in transactional analysis (TA)
  • an ACTO-accredited certificate in online and telephone counselling
  • BPS-approved certificates in trauma psychopathology and treatment, new approaches to working with traumatic loss and grief, and CBT for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • level 3 certificate in drug and alcohol counselling

My integrative background involves tailoring different theoretical approaches depending on your personal needs. 

I undergo ongoing supervision and professional training to ensure that I continue to practise to high standards.

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.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There is step-free access via a lift to my practice at Exchange House. I can also offer remote counselling via video.
