About me

I am a qualified integrative & trauma informed counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

Through my lived experience, I understand how difficult it is to reach out and seek help.  I work holistically and creatively with adults and adolescents in a safe, non-judgmental and relational way - covering a range of issues which can significantly impact on our relationships with ourselves and others - leaving us with a loss of connection and deep unhappiness. I have a special interest in working with anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, loss, trauma/PTSD, abuse and control and the transitions across life stages.

I am here to support you through the challenges you are facing, as you embark on your journey for change, meaning and growth. Together, we can explore ways to understand what's happening and move forward by finding balance.

I am fully insured and a member of the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office), which means that I adhere to their regulations, ensuring the safe usage of your data. I also hold a current DBS for working with children and young people.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
