About me

As an integrative counsellor and certified trauma therapist, my aim is to help you work through whatever it is that has driven you to seek out therapy. I am a somatic trauma therapist, and this means that we would incorporate both the mind and body into therapy. My integration includes an awareness of how the body responds to emotional distress such as anxiety, anger, sadness and longing: an understanding of what a person’s body is ‘saying’ can help where the right words cannot be found. If this is not something that appeals to you, we can also practice talking therapy as I am experienced in both ways of working.


I work integratively, drawing on different approaches tailored to each individual client. My main approach is Psychodynamic which includes exploring past experiences and relationships and how they are affecting you today. We would explore and work through self-sabotaging behaviours and tendencies to self-criticise.


Our first meeting would be warm and welcoming, where we would talk about your needs and how I can best help you. We would discuss whether you would prefer short-term or open-ended therapy and discuss which approach you feel comfortable with. I would ensure that I provide a safe, secure space for you to be able to talk about anything without feeling judged.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
