I am currently seeing a limited number of clients in person on Mondays. All other client sessions are being conducted online using Skype/Zoom.
This offers an option to get the support you need the way you want.
I am a registered HCPC registered counselling psychologist and a BACP registered psychotherapist with experience across a diverse range of issues including substance use, anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, self-harm in addition to many more concerns. Deciding to engage with psychological therapies means finding the right therapist for you. I work in a practical and down to earth way that is geared towards helping you make the most out of therapy, at a pace that works best for you. Using a collaborative approach we will work together to explore and unravel the issues that are bringing concern to your life. I am here to listen, to be with, to empathise and to support you as best I can.
There are no expectations from me for how you should engage with therapy. What I aim to provide is a space that makes you feel comfortable and safe to express yourself. My doctoral training and clinical exposure has given me the skills and experience to practice across a wide range of evidence-based theories and techniques such as existential, psychodynamic and CBT therapies
Please get in touch to discuss your therapy needs.

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 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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
It is best to contact me via email as I am not always available by phone. I will respond as soon as I can that day. I offer a free 15 minutes initial phone consultation. I am registered with the following insurance companies; AXA PPP, Aviva, Cigna UK, WPA and Healix. Individual self-paying fees are £115 per session with a limited number of £95 sessions available. I also have a very limited number of reduced slots available at £75 for those on low income and students.
Concessions offered for
My research interests lie in gaining a better understanding of how the social and gendered expectations we face impact upon our ability to cope with life. Such pressures can prevent help-seeking behaviours and prevent us from getting the support we need. I have particular experience working with people who are hesitant with the concept of therapy that leaves them cautious to disclose their concerns with another individual. To help with this I aim to build strong working relationships that act as a key foundation to therapy.
