About me

An Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, passionate about helping people resolve emotional and psychological issues.

If you are feeling low, depressed or anxious, struggle with troubling thoughts and behaviours, find relationships difficult, suffering from low self esteem, or feel like something is holding you back, counselling can help.  You can reduce stress, manage emotions better, improve mood, become self aware, and gain the necessary clarity to improve the quality of your life and relationships.

It is not always easy to talk about difficulties and look at issues that cause pain, I aim to ease this process and provide a calm, safe and confidential space for you to talk about issues that are important to you. Working together we can gain valuable insights and help you find coping mechanisms and solutions to your problems.

My practise is underpinned by principles that are based on compassion, non judgment, acceptance and commitment. As an integrative practitioner I draw upon several therapeutic models (CBT, psychodynamics, relational, humanistic, transpersonal, mindfulness) tailored to your individual needs.

A journey of self-discovery can be enlightening, healing and empowering. I am here to help you each step of the way.

A member of the professional body for psychotherapists and Counsellors, BACP 
How to get started:

First step is email me to set up an initial session or a pre consultation phone call. We will talk about what you want to get out of counselling, If your happy to continue I’ll set up a second session.

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.
