I am a qualified and experienced therapist trained in integrative psychotherapy. I offer a safe and non-judgmental space and a confidential and supportive relationship where clients can work at their own pace to overcome their personal obstacles. My philosophy is that counselling and psychotherapy are not just about overcoming personal difficulty but are also about reaching personal potential and discovering the person that you were meant to be.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Doctorate in clinical practice (ongoing)
- MA in Jungian Psychology (with distinction)
- BA in Counselling (with 1st class Honours)
- FdSc in Integrative Counselling (with Merit)
- Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy

I strongly believe that it is the relationship between counsellor and client that facilitates growth and healing and I strive to provide a safe, confidential and judgement-free environment where my clients can explore and unpack their problems and work towards the solutions they need. I believe that people repress and disassociate from parts of themselves (due to trauma, sadness, and the judgements of others) and that uncovering, accepting, and integrating these parts back into the self tends to lead people towards a more genuine sense of self and helps them to fully realise their potential as an individual. My training has been largely integrative meaning I utilise a wide variety of theories and approaches within my client work including: Jungian, Freudian and post-Freudian, Humanistic, and transactional analysis theory.
Throughout my training and post-qualification I have worked in a number of agencies and counselling settings and have worked with a wide variety of age-groups and presenting issues.
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.

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).
