I believe everyone can benefit from therapy at certain points in their lives and that caring for our mental health is as important as caring for our physical health. I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and also an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Counselling is your time and space for us to work together to find insight into your issues and develop strategies to help you cope with the complexities of life. I work using an integrative approach that allows us to find the unique way for you to achieve personal growth and attain your goals.
I work with adults, children and young people who have a variety of issues they would like to explore including anxiety and depression to more specific concerns. Since qualifying I have provided therapy for charities, NHS IAPT services offering short term counselling, in secondary/boarding schools as well as in my own private practice. I have experience with Anxiety, Depression, Inter-personal Relationships, Complex Trauma, Grief and Loss, Adolescents & School Counselling, Couples/Relationship and Psychosexual counselling.
I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and am fully insured. I aim to offer a friendly, non-judgemental and confidential service where you will feel at ease. Together we can explore difficulties and work towards achieving your goals and personal development.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
