I am a trauma informed humanistic integrative psychotherapist, with over 10 years experience working with children and adults.
I have been fortunate enough to have a large scope of practise, that has spanned over several years from; university counsellor, working with refugees, medical insurance and NHS settings.
I work with a broad range of presenting problems including suicidal ideation, self harm, depression, anxiety, single incident trauma, childhood trauma, stress, relationship issues, low self worth, grief, problematic relationship patterns, attachment, loss of self, body image concerns, sexual trauma and complex trauma.
My training and my approach is rooted in evidence based practices, from neuroscience to somatic practices, as-well as being culturally affirming and solution- focused. While I may draw upon a wide range of techniques in my practise, my work with you will be highly individualised and focused on your specific concerns.
My primary aim is to empower my clients. Another integral part of work is to create a safe and confidential settings where clients can be true to themselves.
The result of my passion and love for the work I do has allowed me to work at relational depth with my clients. Paving way for me to be as present as possible to experience, explore the clients internal world with openness, curiosity to each persons unique experience.
My clients describe me as warm, empathic attentive and astute in my approach to understanding problems and collaboratively exploring solutions . I am regularly told my way of working is very effective . I have helped many clients make sense of their distress in a couple of sessions, sometimes it takes a little longer.

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.
