About me

I am an experienced, BACP Accredited, Counsellor and Psychotherapist providing a private counselling service for adults online, or in-person in Cambridge and Huntingdon where I offer mid or long-term therapy.

I trained and qualified in Cambridge in a Psychodynamic approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have an advanced qualification in a somatic-informed Trauma Therapy and ancillary training in the application of the Humanistic, and CBT therapies.

Alongside working privately, I have a range of experience gained from various clinical and counselling settings including within the NHS, working with young adults in a charity setting and in managing a team of specialist counsellors for a regional charity offering long-term therapy to adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Counselling

We are each of us unique and there are many reasons that may lead to considering therapy. You may be seeking therapy with a clear idea of the things you wish to talk about or equally, you might be feeling a bit stuck or confused about your feelings at the moment and just need someone to talk to.

Counselling can provide the space to be really listened to, with care and without judgement. It can help you to increase your understanding of yourself, to find new ways to respond to life’s challenges or to make the changes you wish to make, so you can live your life as you would want to.

I value your unique perspective and have the experience of working with clients from different walks of life and backgrounds and with diverse life circumstances. Clients have come to see me for many different reasons including anxiety and panic attacks, depression, low self-esteem, compulsive behaviours, bereavement, relationship, family or work stress, disordered eating, abuse and trauma.

In counselling, my approach is informed by my core Psychodynamic training. By working together in this way we can explore the source of your current thoughts and feelings, to help bring insight and understanding to present difficulties.

When working with clients who are seeking therapy following history of trauma or a traumatic experience, I incorporate a trauma informed perspective in helping us to work collaboratively and safely. 

Contacting me

I know it can feel daunting to take the first step and make contact. Counselling can make a difference, but it is important to find the right therapy for you and a way of working together that makes sense to you.

If you would like to explore working together, I offer an initial appointment, either online, or in person in Cambridge or in Huntingdon, where my aim is to identify how counselling might best help you. This is also an opportunity to see how it feels to work together before making the decision to continue.

Each session, including our initial session, lasts 50 minutes and is charged at £60. I operate a 48-hour cancellation policy. 

Please contact me if you wish to discuss any questions, or if you would like to book an initial appointment.

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.

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.
