About me

Reason for coming to therapy are unique to each person . You may have hopes and desires of becoming a better version of yourself. A desire for change, to face the difficulties that may leave you anxious, stressed or depressed, feeling stuck, unable to move forwards. At times we are left with difficult thoughts and feelings. Patterns in our life can keep us in a circle of inner conflict, at at times relationship conflicts not knowing why. if you have feelings of Anxiety, Depression, Low self esteem. Talking to someone Is a great way to start. Don't choose to fight it alone, instead its time to give yourself the time and space to explore.

I am an Integrative Therapist, working in a Client Centred way. I also work inter-culturally, and at times creatively. Our focus, is developing a trusting Therapeutic relationship to encourage positively our work together. I offer both short and long term therapy. Working creatively also helps support at times when words are few. I also have experience with Drama and the arts and play therapy tools.

Everyone needs to be heard, respected, to feel listened to. Having a safe space to freely express, feel accepted unconditionally without judgment or fear, is what I can offer. Together we will navigate our way through the issues to encourage self-awareness and authenticity of who you are. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
