About me

Welcome to my page, I am an integrative therapist with over 15 years of experience of helping individuals deal with life events and cope with complex mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, toxic relationship issues, low self-esteem, miscarriages, menopause, bereavement, social anxiety. Also experience with victims of abuse, self harm & trauma.

I also work with NHS staff, taking a solution focused approach to their mental health and wellbeing and helping to shift their mindset. 

Reframing unhelpful thoughts, It is easy to develop negative patterns and unhelpful thoughts which lead to unhelpful feelings and behaviours. This can be very repetitive & be a vicious cycle. You can influence this process and improve your mental health. The best way to deal with this is to recognise them thoughts, challenge them feelings & replace it with a new process. This technique is called CATCH IT, CHECK IT, CHANGE IT.

Therapy offers an exciting and challenging space for personal exploration, growth and development. You may be experiencing a specific, or range of issue and feel as though you're having a tough time, or you might have a general curiosity and want to understand yourself better. Perhaps your are 

  • Perhaps you are scared of difficult dark moments that may unravel? Or are you worried about gently peeling back, the layers or discussing issues that you have held onto for so long?
  • Do you feel trapped in your mind and absorbed with these constant storms of feelings? Which can make you feel disconnected from the world.
  • Do you have struggles eating and getting to sleep? This is a problem where you overthink and analyse your thoughts, causing you to struggle to switch off.
  • Overwhelming sadness due to a death of someone you loved.
  • Fear that your relationship is about to end or you feel stuck and want to leave.
  • Guilt because you can not control your anger. 
  • Stress and pressure of work & striving for a home work life balance.

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.
