About me

As an Integrative Psychotherapist I believe that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. I believe we are all unique individuals and need to be treated as such. I will provide you with the time and space to explore the issues that are important to you. My aim is to enable you to learn more about yourself and the relationship you have with yourself and others. This awareness enables you to have a greater understanding of how you react in the world and the opportunity to change if you wish.

The sessions are 50 minutes long and I work either face to face or online via Skype or FaceTime which allows for a relaxed and confidential atmosphere. They are not a question and answer session but a space for you to talk about what is important to you. I may ask questions but the aim of them will be to help you better understand what is going on for you. There are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers!

The first session is a space for you to tell me what you are hoping for from therapy and for me to explain how therapy may help you. The most important part of any therapy is the relationship between you and I, client and therapist. You need to feel that you can speak openly and honestly to me.

My website gives more insight into what to expect from therapy and please feel free to ring me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP accredited Integrative Psychotherapist and a registered member of BACP. I have worked extensively with private clients with a large range of issues as well as being a volunteer therapist at Teesside Hospise and working with addictions at Hambleton and Richmondshire Community Addiction Service.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Accredited register membership
