About me

Each of us experiences being in the world differently.   It is what makes us unique, but it is also what can, at times, make us feel isolated or lost; not knowing how to move forward.

Our sense of who we are can be challenged by many things, from childhood trauma to bereavement; from sexual identity to feelings of low self-worth, or perhaps a desire to ‘know ourselves better’.

Counselling or Psychotherapy can be seen as an investment in you, an investment that has the potential to bring you from a place of crisis or confusion to one of relief. My aim is to provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which this exploration can unfold at your own pace.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Existential/Integrative Psychotherapist. My work is informed by Existential philosophy, Psychoanalytic and Humanistic theory. What this means is, alongside my clients, I look to the past, and considerations of the future, for a greater understanding of how we are in the world today.

Having initially trained to Masters level (Integrative Psychotherapy) at Regent's University, London, I furthered my training to obtain an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy, also at Regent's University. I am a member of, and abide by the ethical working practices of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

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.
