About me


A warm welcome to you all. 

We can feel a range of emotions whilst trying to understand the pain we are feeling. We can feel challenged, out of our comfort zone exploring meaning and purpose to what we are feeling and experiencing.  It may be something that you are currently experiencing or something which has occurred during your childhood, you may fear what the future holds. As individuals we go through a range of experiences which can have an impact on our mental wellbeing. You  may suffer from some form of Anxiety, depression, low self esteem due to certain experiences within your life, I am here to let you know that your feelings are valid and what you are experiencing is also valid. 

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist registered with the British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP). I offer therapy in a safe, confidential and non judgemental space to help you explore, understand and resolve difficult emotions.

Through our sessions, my focus will be to walk besides through whatever you are experiencing. We can work together to help you understand why you feel like you do, explore early life experiences as well as current events which may have impacted certain patterns in your life.  I am here to allow you to feel heard and to emotionally hold you through your journey of healing. I hope that our work together will support you to better understand yourself and develop a more authentic and satisfying ways of being in life.

I recognise that our emotions can have a huge impact on our mental wellbeing and the importance of acknowledging them. I see that this may be a difficult step to take, but I would like you to know that you matter too, and your feelings are valid. I am here to walk right besides you even when you feel you can't no matter the feeling. 

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.
