About me

I’m an integrative therapist. That means I draw from a toolkit of different approaches and techniques. I tailor my approach to you, based on how you relate to yourself and the world.

There are times when things feel overwhelming. We find ourselves repeating unhelpful or destructive patterns. Or we feel anxious, stuck, lost, unhappy.

I provide empathetic, non-judgemental, confidential support to help you find clearer understanding and a way forward. I work with respect and humour. I’ll also encourage you to work hard to explore feelings and experiences which may be uncomfortable.

Feel free to email me to arrange an informal, no-obligation chat.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work in strict accordance to their ethical principles and adhere to their regulatory standards. This ensures that I practice therapy within a rigorous professional framework.

I’m a graduate of the UK’s leading institute for counselling and psychotherapy, The Minster Centre. I also hold a Masters in photojournalism, and have worked in TV production and charity communications. I understand the importance of empowering people to find and use their voice.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
