"Healing takes time and asking for help is a courageous step" - Mariska Hargitay
You might have thought of coming to therapy for a while or it may be a recent idea. In either case, I am here to listen to whatever is burdening you and to explore how we can make life a little easier. No problem is too big or small.
Within our therapy sessions I will give you time just for you, offering a safe and calming space for your experiences to be shared, heard and respected. My aim is to work alongside you to gain new perspective, effective coping mechanisms and an inner sense of confidence and calm.
My counselling style is warm and nurturing and at no point will I try to pressure you to make a decision or to rush you through a conversation. I welcome you to contact me for any enquiries you might have and how I can support you at this moment.
I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to feel at ease and to live a fulfilling life, and I look forward to getting to know your unique life story and supporting you during what must be a very difficult time.
Training, qualifications & experience
MSc. Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Person-centred/Attachment theory/CBT)
PgCert. Addiction Psychology and Counselling
I am an experienced and fully qualified BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist working from an integrative stance. This means that I draw on elements from different psychological approaches to create a personalised approach that suit your needs. All my work is in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework, placing you the client at the centre.
My previous roles have included supporting families, adults and children in both the private and public sector with experiences of relationship breakdowns, anxiety, trauma, stress, low motivation and mood.
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).
