About me

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I currently offer online counselling and psychotherapy across the UK, using a confidential video calling service.

My approach to counselling is integrative, which means that I draw from a combination of therapeutic styles based on the individual needs of my clients.

My aim is to offer accessible, affordable counselling and to provide a warm, welcoming, and non-judgemental space to support you in working through your thoughts and feelings. I offer a safe, confidential, and empathic environment where we can understand and work through whatever has brought you to therapy.

I work with people experiencing a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and self-destructive patterns or behaviours. I often support clients to understand themselves better, helping them to understand who they are and what they want from life. This could include developing a stronger sense of identity, finding direction or purpose, dealing with career or relationship changes, or understanding your sexuality.

I regularly work with young adults, members of the LGBTQIA+ community and people working in creative professions, particularly in performing arts. That said, my practice is inclusive, and I welcome all clients aged eighteen and over, of all gender identities, sexualities, races, and ethnicities. I am committed to supporting equality and diversity, and to advocating for individuals facing discrimination.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BA (Hons) Degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling from Middlesex University. I have also achieved a Level 4 BSc in Psychology with Counselling Theory, and a Level 4 DipHE in Mental Health Nursing. I am qualified in Mental Health First Aid through Mental Health First Aid England.

My background is primarily in mental health support and working in the charity sector. I have significant experience within NHS services and in telephone crisis support. I also have a strong working knowledge of a variety of creative industries.

I am a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework and standards of practice. I maintain my counselling standards by regularly completing continual professional development and by reporting to a BACP accredited supervisor for support and guidance.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
