I'm a qualified Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist offering long-term and short-term therapy. Over the years, I have helped support people who were experiencing present difficulties, future worries, or concerns about their past. Our past, present, and future all play a significant part in everyday life, and I have helped many people find a way forward, bringing them closer to their values. Some of the work my clients and I have done together include; overcoming depression, reducing anxiety, managing panic attacks, helping to increase a sense of self-awareness and identity, processing difficulties from the past, helping to understand themselves, working with trauma, increasing confidence, and enhancing overall well-being.


Navigating your way through the huge amount of psychological therapists can sometimes add more stress and confusion. And adding to that confusion is that there are so many different ways therapists can work! However, the most important thing for you is to pick someone who you feel drawn to, the relationship between the therapist and client is essential in therapy, therefore, making sure you have chosen someone who you feel open to work with is the first – and most important – step. As such, if you have made it this far down my bio, then there is a chance that something has kept you reading, so below I have added some questions-and-answers information that will give you a clearer sense of me, and the way I work – hopefully assisting you in making a more informed decision. Alternatively, if something is not feeling right, and you’re not too sure about whether to continue reading, that is perfectly okay and might mean that what you’re looking for can only be found on another therapist's profile. If this is the case, then please continue your search, and I wish you the very best of luck.

What is your Background?

On completing my undergraduate psychology degree, I realised I wanted to dedicate my career to understanding the mind, and supporting people. After graduating, I worked as part of a project called Partners Access to Perinatal Advice and Support (PAPAS). This specialised in supporting males with mental health difficulties who have new born babies. This was a hugely rewarding part of my career and helped me transition to join another service, where I supported women with perinatal depression. At the same time I was also an Early Intervention Support Worker, where I would travel to schools and help children and adolescents experiencing significant mental health difficulties.

In early 2017 I began work with the Tavistock Centre in London as a Group Facilitator where I would run therapeutic groups of up to four couples. The groups aimed to work with couples in distress who have children, to develop a healthier parent-child relationship, and mitigate any distress to the child. 

In mid-2017, I joined a team of therapists in an NHS Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service. I then helped establish a community counselling service where I managed a team of therapists for 3 years. I have accrued over 1600 hours of clinical work in both short-term and long-term settings. At present, and in addition to my private practice, I am currently working as part of an Acute Care Inpatient Psychological Team in an NHS psychiatric hospital while finalising my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. 


So, your Approach is ‘Integrative’, what does that mean?

Working as an Integrative psychotherapist means I believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy. Therefore, I will integrate many different theoretical concepts and therapeutic ideas to support me in understanding you. This helps me to tailor my work to each individual client to best fit with your presenting needs. Some of the models I draw on include; Somatic Psychology (working with the mind-body connection), the Relational Model (uses the therapeutic relationship), Trauma-Focused Models (exploring difficulties through a ‘trauma lens’), Developmental models (considers your childhood experiences), Psychodynamic models (explores your unconscious processes), and Neurobiological models (deals with how the mind and body react to stressful situations, and how to work with them).

What is Different about a Counselling Psychologist?

Counselling psychologists are trained to doctoral level over a period of eight years: a three year undergraduate psychology degree and five year postgraduate studying. It is a specialised training that works towards the development of “scientist-practitioner”. The in-depth study of therapeutic models equips candidates to draw upon, critique, and utilise their learning when working with clients to ‘carve out’ the most appropriate treatment.

What is it like to work with you?

I am proud to work in a way where my approach is tailored to your individual needs. My stance as a therapist has been described in the past as empathic, compassionate, mindful, and supportive. I will always do my best to create a confidential, secure, and safe environment where you can talk about your worries, concerns, and personal problems.
