About me

I am a Humanistic Integrative Therapist, which means I believe in people’s capacity for healing and growth. I draw on a variety of models, including Gestalt, Person-centred and Transactional Analysis, working in a way that meets each person’s individual needs.

I offer a non-judgemental, empathic space in which we can establish a relationship built on warmth and trust. I will be led by what you want to bring at a pace that works for you. I will meet you with compassion, inviting a here-and-now exploration of your feelings, thoughts and experiences so that you can gain clarity over your experiences and work towards making the changes you want to make.

In our sessions, my role is to listen, support you and be alongside you as you identify and explore challenges you are facing. At times, I may make observations and invite gentle challenges to heighten awareness and gain a deeper understanding of yourself.

I know from experience, that therapy can be a step towards real change. I believe that, given the right conditions, each of us possesses the inner ability to expand our awareness and realise our true potential.

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.
