About me

I see my aim as a therapist to create a safe and confidential space for us to collaboratively discuss anything that may be concerning you. You don't need to have a diagnosed mental health difficulty to benefit from therapy. Reasons for seeking therapy can range from anxiety, depression, trauma, to just feeling stuck, a little down, or hard on yourself.

I work intergratively which means I use a variety of counselling models to influence my practice. I am predominately trained in Person Centred Therapy. This is a humanistic type of therapy and works on the principle that you can reach your full potential and that I am your guide. I am also influenced by Compassion Focused theories in my practice, which look at how we treat ourselves, how others treat us and how we treat others, to build a more compassionate version of ourselves.

Member organisations


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.
