I’m a qualified BACP registered psychotherapist with a particular

interest in relational trauma, shame and identity issues.

 

I've worked in a range of settings including an NHS GP surgery,

a local mental health charity, a specialist therapeutic service for refugees

and a residential care home for elderly people.

People say that I have an infectious laugh and that I’m good at connecting

with others.

About Me

My Story

I first thought about becoming a therapist in my early twenties when working with detained young people who were struggling with their mental health. As I gained their trust, I found that they would open up and share their stories of trauma and abuse with me.

It was not, however, until I ended up in therapy myself, that I started training as a therapist.

Through having therapy myself, I came to really value having somebody who listened to me attentively, who I could share my deepest fears with and who would challenge me in a gentle and compassionate way.

My Qualifications

I completed the following qualifications at the Northern Guild for Counselling and Psychotherapy:

  • A Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy (Masters Level 7, UKCP accredited)

  • A Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Level 5, BACP accredited)

I have also completed further training on a number of topics including trauma, working online, racial stress & trauma and LGBTQ+ issues.  I also hold qualifications in art history, human rights law, French and Spanish.
