About me

Are you stuck, finding life hard to manage or struggling with neurodiversity? Work with me to reconnect with your authentic self. Now in recovery from working as a lawyer, I have spent the last quarter of my life working with people to put them back together in a way that works for them. I have personally experienced stress related burnout, workplace trauma, major depression, anxiety, and grief, on top of an adult diagnosis of attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD). It was years before I really understood what being neurodiverse means and the different way that my mind works.

Alongside my BACP qualification as a therapeutic counsellor in Psychosynthesis, I use practices from Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy that I learned as part of my master’s degree at Oxford University.

Together we can work to find the real person you essentially are, helping to reconnect you with the things that bring you joy, rather than getting stuck on automatic pilot, playing parts and roles in life that don't work for you any longer. You don't need to be unwell to benefit from psychosynthesis or mindfulness, although most people come to therapy when something gets stuck or unworkable in their lives. Whatever your reason to seek help, I believe in reconnecting you with what makes your heart sing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 12 years of experience in supporting wellbeing for individuals in workplaces, groups and one-to-one therapy settings. 

Master of Arts, Cambridge University, in Experimental Psychology. Called to the Bar Lincoln's Inn, volunteered with LawCare. Master of Studies, Oxford University, in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. Level 7 Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counselling from the Psychosynthesis Education Trust.

Member organisations

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

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).
