About me

I have a Foundation Degree in Counselling which includes a Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling (a combination of Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis) and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have completed their Certificate of Proficiency. This means that I abide by their code of conduct and ethical standards, ensuring that my work is safe, ethical and competent.

I work in private practice both face-to-face and through online video call (Skype, Signal, WhatsApp, FaceTime) with adults and young people (16yrs +). I am also a feature therapist for The Mind Field and a partner in the Dorset Counselling Partnership.

Before becoming a counsellor, I lived in Africa and Asia working for NGOs, the UN and Donor Agencies for over 15 years. I also had my own ‘third culture’ kids during this time and know what it is like to bring up a family in such environments. I am now based in Dorset, UK.
