Life is a mix of challenges, complications and difficulties. On top of that, you are faced with the unknowns around 'all things therapy'.
Firstly, taking the time to choose the right therapist for you really is key. This is because the relationship between you and your therapist plays a big part in supporting you to overcome these challenges, improve your wellbeing and ultimately get you to where you want to be!
So, here's a little about me. A blend of acceptance, kindness, understanding, an open mind, commitment and pride in your success all make up who I am and how I work with you. Being yourself and feeling safe means a lot to me, which is why I offer a free 15 minute consultation so that you can see if I am a good fit for you.
Of course, an understanding of the issues you face and my experience is also important. I hold various qualifications; an MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy being the most recent. The 'integrative' way of working basically means that my work combines different theoretical approaches. I believe that this is helpful as it moves away from the 'one size fits all' idea. Additionally, it allows me to tailor your experience, to best suit your needs.
I have helped many people over the years facing various and complex challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, bereavement, abuse, negative thinking, self-esteem, relationships, work related issues, identity, learning disabilities, health issues, anger, stress and much more.
I am a specialist in the field of grief and bereavement and have undertaken extensive research in this area, which is being reviewed for publication.
Therapy can be a life changing opportunity. We can work together in a way that works for you, to help you create lasting change. To begin this process, ask or discuss anything please do get in touch.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
