About me

I am an integrative counsellor trained in Psychodynamic counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt Therapy………. based on attachment and a person-centred approach. I offer online, phone and face-to-face sessions for individuals and couples.

Neurodiverse clients, LGBTQ+and Complex Trauma

The goal of an individual therapy is to inspire change and improve the quality of life through self awareness and self exploration.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues, which specifically include neurodiversity, anxiety and depression, panic attacks, bereavement, work stress, life transitions, suicidal ideation, low self-esteem, abuse, emotional neglect, personal development, menopause, PTSD/ trauma/phobias (using Rewind technique).

I aim to provide a compassionate and empathic space to hear each person's story and to identify specific goals for therapy.

Therapy interventions will be evidence-based and tailored to each individuals needs.

I offer and integrate the following approaches into my practice: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred, Gestalt and Rewind Techniques for Trauma Therapy.

Where I offer space to be listened too - I will listen with kindness and in total confidence.  

I also offer counselling online throughout the UK and abroad.

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.

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.
