About me

Hi, welcome to this page. There might be several reasons why you are looking to start therapy: Maybe you feel stuck and don’t know how to overcome a difficult situation. Or why the same things seem to be happening to you. Maybe you feel very sad and like you’re carrying heavy baggage. Stress might be a bit too much and you wish you could stop the race inside you. Maybe you just want to feel better. Maybe you are not sure, but you feel that all is not ok. And maybe all the above at the same time. Life can get hard and sometimes it seems the hard times have been going on for too long. But shift can happen too.

I believe in the ability of people to change in ways that make them thrive. I also believe in the importance of being accompanied in making those changes. Adapting is what makes us survive, but sometimes we adapt in ways that are not good for us. I will accompany you in this journey of exploration of yourself and of ways you can feel better and flourish.

It can be very difficult to ask for help, even though asking for help is natural and necessary. There is always help available, we just need to discover where to find it. Therapy is very personal, and not one size fits all. If you are curious about whether I could help you, please get in touch. The first 20-minute chat is free.

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.

Accredited register membership
