About Me

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor and Accredited/Registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and Prof/Accred member of NCPS (National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society).

I have over 15 years’ counselling/psychotherapy experience, an educational background and experience of working with individuals, couples and groups. I am also a BUPA Recognised and Fee Assured Mental Health and Well-being Practitioner and registered as a Health Provider with Nuffield Health, Aviva, AXA PPP and Vitality. I have worked in a group supervision setting, both as a participant and facilitator, for a number of years. I attend supervision both for my counselling and supervision work in order to ensure the best outcomes for my clients and supervisees and subscribe to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I am also a member of EMDR Association UK.

I have trained Integratively, which means that I practise different counselling models: Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR), Gestalt, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Transactional Analysis and Existential Therapy. I have experience in short- as well as long-term work. My work experience includes working with minority, multicultural, neurodiverse and LGBTQ+ clients and the provision of Gender, Sexuality & Relationship Diversity (GSRD) affirmative therapy, which constitutes one of my special areas of expertise. I have worked across a range of presentations and intersectional characteristics. My specialisms include working with marginalised and historically repressed communities, promoting social justice and tackling minority stress.

My qualifications include:

CPPD Counselling School Diploma in Clinical Supervision (Integrative)

CPCAB Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Integrative – Level 5)
