About me

You may have been thinking about reaching out for some time. Taking the first step into therapy can be intimidating, and the relationship with a therapist is unlike any other. It is essential that you find someone with whom you can feel safe. 

I am here to help make that transition as easy, comfortable, and rewarding as possible. I work with individual adults to help explore problems, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationship issues, codependency, grief/loss, compulsive sexual behaviour and a myriad of other issues. 

Frequently these problems are deep-rooted, and we must look back before we can move forwards. This can be a scary and painful process. However, a safe therapeutic environment can make it a profound and enlightening experience.

Together we can help you develop a deeper relationship with yourself and others while developing the capacity to cope in a rapidly changing world.

My practice draws from a range of therapeutic methods and theories to develop a way of working that suits individual needs.  

My approach draws on psychodynamic, attachment-based, person-centred, existential and body psychotherapies to work with the "here and now" and consider how the past affects and influences the present. I am inspired by the link between the mind and the body. I integrate the physical, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of our identity and bring them into the therapy process.

I offer short-term counselling (around 8 to 12 sessions) or longer-term work with regular review. In any case, the length of therapy will be up to you, and it is something that we can discuss at any time.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre, a leading Counselling and Psychotherapy training institute. I am currently studying for an MA with The Minster Centre and Middlesex University in Integrative Psychotherapy.

I have valuable experience in supporting individuals to free themselves from compulsive sexual behaviours and other relationship difficulties. In the past, I offered one-to-one support to individuals affected by or living with HIV at Positive East, a non-profit organization. I ran workshops at Body & Soul Charity, from 'Dating with HIV' to 'The Issue of Disclosure'. During my training, I joined the low-cost service at the Hudson Centre as a trainee associate.

My client group has been wide-ranging and includes people from diverse cultures, genders, sexualities, religions and faiths. I am an LGBTQIA+ friendly therapist working with and fully embracing diversity.

I am bilingual and I practice in French and English.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their code of ethics.

Member organisations

BACP
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).

Further information

After contacting me, we will set up an introductory session to explore what you are looking for, what is troubling you and what your expectations are. It will be an opportunity to see whether working together is a good fit for us both. It will also give you an experience of what it is like to be in the room with me.

I offer short-term counselling (around 8 to 12 sessions) or longer-term work with regular review. In any case, the length of therapy will be up to you, and we can discuss it at any time.

Sessions will be weekly, at the same time on the same day. It is essential for an effective therapy that we try to maintain a regular and continuous commitment.
