About me

Online Counselling Sessions – UK and Worldwide

You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, the impact of childhood experiences, relationship difficulties, low self-confidence or emotional challenges. I offer a warm and relational approach that supports open dialogue through creating a space which supports you as an individual and your reason for coming to counselling.

I am a qualified Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor. I hold a first degree in Psychology and have worked for over 20 years in the areas of mental health and wellbeing.

I offer a free initial 50-minute session so that you can meet me, ask questions, experience the way I work and decide if I am the right counsellor for you at this time.

I SPECIALISE IN and can help you with:

The impact of Childhood and Adult Trauma. This may include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties feelings of hopelessness or being lost, disconnection from personal needs or desires and shame.

Relationship difficulties. Challenges in family and intimate relationships, relational co-dependency, love addiction, attachment challenges and trauma and developing healthy relationships.

Culture, race and identity. Experiences and questions about identity, connection and belonging, discrimination. Experiences relating to the intersection of race, culture, gender, sexuality and relationships.

Emotional Regulation. Support and skills to regulate and understand difficult emotions and feeling states including anxiety, fear, overwhelm, anger, stress, sadness.

Life transitions and Life thresholds. Leaving education, mid-life transition, career changes, redundancy, marriage, pregnancy, miscarriage, divorce, children leaving home, peri-menopause, menopause, bereavement & loss, spirituality and spiritual emergence.

Ways of Working Together may include:

- Listening, reflection and open dialogue
- Bringing awareness to thoughts, feelings and behaviours that effect your  experience of life and relationships
- Identifying the stories you tell yourself or your internal self-talk and making links with how this impacts your experience and behaviour in life
- Working with the body and body-led approaches
- Mindfulness, nervous system awareness and emotional regulation skills
- Creativity; working with images, metaphors, drawing, dreams, music, poetry and archetypes
- Education and information about the body, mind and psychology
- Supporting your strengths, hopes, goals, growth and transformation towards personal wellbeing

Practicing as an Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor means that in addition to the ways of working described above I hold a space for the human heart and soul in my work.

What this means in practice is that I hold a care and a trust for your inner wisdom and your life’s personal journey. I pay attention to this and what this means for the changes and healing that you may be seeking. For example, attention may be given to the meaning of your challenges through creative ways; giving space for information that is less in your immediate awareness to arise. This may allow for closer contact with what is true and authentic for you and your growth.

This framework is held alongside my solid foundation of clinical experience and an integrative model of counselling which in cooperates knowledge from a range of therapeutic models . I do not believe that ‘one size fits all’. Together we will collaborate to create an approach to our work that will be most supportive for you.

I am led by the principles of compassion, care, openness, authenticity, integrity and providing counselling that may support you in a way that is most beneficial for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

My Qualifications

I am a qualified Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor and am accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I hold a BSC Psychology degree and have worked in the areas of mental health and wellbeing for over 20 years supporting individuals in one-to-one and group settings. This has included working at practitioner, clinical management and consultancy levels.

My Experience

I have worked with individuals in one-to-one and group work for over two decades. In recent years, my experience includes providing trauma-informed therapies and group programmes, with a focus on healing the impact of childhood and adult trauma through talking therapies, body-based and creative approaches.

This has included being the Adult Service Lead at a specialist award winning, trauma-informed holistic wellbeing mental health charity. I have also led UK’s  only Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Centre as Clinic Director, where a skilled team of psychologists & therapists provide treatment for anxiety, depression and addiction.

This work experience, training, continued professional and personal development brings a depth to my skill, knowledge and practice which informs my overall approach to counselling.

Member organisations

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.
