About me

I am in integrative counsellor working online during the current Covid-19 pandemic. I am hoping to transition back to face to face working at my therapy room in Bath from July 2021. I am also currently offering outdoor "Walk and Talk" sessions.

I truly believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is at the heart of the therapeutic experience and true, meaningful healing.  In our work together I will provide a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space where your needs are seen and heard. I work in a client-led way, with curiosity in getting to know the real you. As an integrative therapist, my work is underpinned by person-centred and psychodynamic therapies, and I blend these approaches to meet the needs of each individual I work with.

I’m also passionate about the natural world and understanding how we relate to all that is around us, and I believe that consideration of these relationships can be a powerful resource within the therapeutic process. My own research interests are currently focussing on how we connect to non-human others/spaces and the potential that exploration of these connections might have in understanding our true selves and experiences. I have taken some CPD training in walk and talk therapy, so please do get in touch if you would like to discuss how taking therapy outdoors and into nature might work for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

MSc in Therapeutic Counselling (with Merit) - University of Greenwich.

I have several years of experience working and volunteering in both NHS and private sectors - both clinical and non-clincal roles.

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.
