About me

I am a psychotherapist, and the Founder and Clinical Director of the Good Mental Health Company. I am passionate about social change and about bringing compassionate, heart-centred thinking to my work with people and communities.

I welcome clients who bring to therapy difficult feelings and emotions that may have been around for some time. Sometimes a particular life event prompts you to seek therapy, or you may come with a long-standing difficulty, struggle or problem, which feels ready to begin the healing process. I have specialist interest in working with people who have difficulties with food; people who have experienced complex early life trauma, and individuals who have parents or family members with mental health problems, addictions or disability. Low mood, anxiety, and difficulties regulating your feelings may also be reasons you might want to work with me. 

I am trained as a Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist and work using different theoretical models - psychodynamic, humanistic and existential, all of which offer helpful and healing benefits for personal growth. My work is deeply influenced by the transpersonal approach, and the work of Carl Jung; creative imagination, metaphor, symbolism, and dreams can be explored in our work together, which is often deeply transformational. My approach is relational, therapeutic, and non-judgemental. 

I do not set a time limit on our work together, this is informed by you and we can discuss this when we meet and as our work progresses. Short-term counselling for some people is enough, while for others a longer-term therapeutic relationship is right for them. 

I welcome enquiries from trainee psychotherapists.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a postgraduate diploma in Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy, a degree in Psychology, and a Masters degree in Public Health Education and Health Promotion.

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.

UKCP
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.

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.

Accredited register membership

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My room is located on the second floor of the building, which has a lift and is wheelchair accessible.
