I am a qualified Psychosexual Therapist and have worked and helped clients who have struggled with their intimate relationships.

I am also an EMDR Therapist, helping clients to process their trauma and emotional pain.

I am currently undertaking training in Addiction Therapy

My philosophy is to provide a safe, calm and nurturing space for my clients to reach their preferred goals, potential and happiness.

Diploma in Relationship Counselling (Levels 4 & 5)

Professional Certificate in Psycho Sexual Therapy (COSRT)

Diploma in EMDR Therapy

I have been practicing Relationship Counselling for over 4 years and CBT for 2 years.

I have extensive experience working with relational issues, sexual problems, depression, anxiety, anger, loss, phobias and insomnia. I also have experience working with addiction and also, the impact that has on family & friends.

Working within Relate has given me the confidence and knowledge needed to work with multiple problems in the therapy room, clients with diverse needs and working within a multicultural society. My experience ensures my clients are treated with respect, as individuals and as clients.

As a Counsellor my strengths are my ability to listen, be empathetic, trustworthy, objective, non-judgemental, calm whilst holding my clients hopes, whilst managing their expectations.

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

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).

Further information

For me as a therapist it is important that I adapt my working styles specifically to my clients needs. Whether that be working systemically, psychodynamically or using person-centered therapy.

It is important that my clients feel safe, understood and valued. This enables us to establish a trusting, collaborative therapeutic relationship which will help us work towards achieving their dual or individual goals.

Key details

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.
