About me

I am a Humanistic Integrative psychotherapist with 15+ years’ experience in the public / NHS sector and in private practice.  I work with individuals and couples, often cross-cultural couples.

I specialise in working with relationships, addiction and in couple therapy.  However, my expertise includes many other issues, and I am happy to help with those listed below.  I also offer coaching, having come from a professional services background.

I am approachable and transparent in the way I work.  As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I tailor my theoretical approach to your individual needs.

We can work short-term on a specific issue or long-term, depending on what is appropriate.

At any point in time, you can be sure that I am committed to helping you:

- enhance your well-being

- improve relationships

- make changes

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
