About Me


working online and in person with structured covid safe guidelines, please contact me for any information or visit my website.

I have been working as a Counsellor / Psychotherapist for over 14 years.

I am currently working as an independent therapist, and also in the City for a large Corporate Financial Establishment.

I have extensive experience having worked for Youth agencies with young people from the age of 11 years old to working with Adults in my previous private practice, and Secondary school therapy including SEN Young people

I have also had experience of working with Employee Assistance Programmes and for health care providers.

I am fully qualified, being trained in the Person Centered and Humanistic Models of Counselling, this means that I work with the Client using the 3 main Core conditions of Empathy, Congruence, and Unconditional Positive Regard.  This enables me to support my clients to affect change within their lives and to empower them to reach their fullest potentials.

I now work as an Integrative Humanistic therapist, meaning that I integrate other Humanistic models into my sessions, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, and Existential Therapies including some CBT where suitable, as well as the advanced use of Mindfulness within therapy.

Working in a truly client centered way means that I have the belief that my clients have the fullest capacity to heal themselves given the right support and environment, and that the path of support is very fluid and evolves with each individual.

Counselling/Psychotherapy are terms relating to short term or longer term talking therapies that are carried out by trained practitioners whom are under a recognised regulatory professional body.  I follow the BACP – British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists ethical framework for Counselling Professions.  Additionally, I am a Registered and Accredited member of the BACP (registration number 020459).  Being accredited shows that a therapist has reached a level within their practice that demonstrates that that they are competent, independent and ethical and commits to ongoing Continuous professional development. This is checked on a yearly basis. I am also an accredited registrant of the National Counselling Society.NCS17-04684

I have a current enhanced DBS check (previously known as CRB check) to work with young and vulnerable people.

I have Public Liability and Professional Liability insurance with "Towergate Professional Risks".

I am Registered as an associate with AVIVA Healthcare, Cigna and Nuffield.
