I have a warm, empathic and relational approach to psychotherapy that is psychodynamically-oriented. I am also open to alternative and flexible ways of working, depending on your needs as an individual.
I understand the importance and impact of human relationships and this includes the therapeutic one that we are able to build together. I can offer you a safe space so that we can explore what you need to make sense of. This can include an understanding of difficult feelings, emotions or thoughts in the present or revealing how trauma is carried somatically within the body. We can also explore together how early childhood and later or present experiences have impacted your life and created ingrained patterns which may have influenced your attachment to others.
My experience includes working with individuals, groups and doing short and long-term psychotherapy work in community therapeutic organisations. I have also worked with younger adolescents in a school setting. I am open to working outside of a traditional setting and have an interest in eco-therapy and nature therapy. My current work includes being a group counsellor in a community, human rights organisation supporting survivors of torture and trafficking.

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).
