About me

Hello, I help people who for a variety of reasons are unhappy with their lives and want this to change. I have over fifteen years experience working with young people and adults with a wide range of issues

I believe that counselling gives the client a safe and secure place to explore all painful worries and concerns. As a chartered psychologist and counsellor, I provide a warm and welcoming place for this to happen.

Please contact me if you feel that I can help you.

I also offer email telephone and/or skype sessions for those who are unable to attend for face to face sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

Prior to working in private practice, I have managed a counselling service in the voluntary sector and worked for the NHS, both in hospital settings and GP surgeries. I have also dealt with traumatic incidents, including accidents, road traffic accidents and prepared reports for insurance companies and the courts where necessary

I have a degree in psychology and a PhD from the University of Southampton. I am chartered psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society [BPS]. I am also a BPS Registered Psychologist Specialising in Psychotherapy with Senior Practitioner Status [ROPSIP], and a British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists senior accredited counsellor. I am a member of ACTO - the association for counsellors and therapists on line. I am registered with the Health Professions Council. As with other fellow professionals, I am bound by BACP, BPS, ACTO and HPC code of ethics.

Fees are currently £45.00 per hour, although concessions are available for those who are struggling. Therapy should financially 'pinch' but not overwhelm, recognising that you are investing in yourself. and future well-being.

Further information

The therapies I use are either psychodynamic, where we look at how the past has influenced the present, or cognitive behavioural therapy where a CBT therapist aims to identify negative thinking that causes problematic feelings and behaviour. CBT encourages a person to challenge their beliefs about themselves and their abilities, and to see themselves and their abilities in a more positive and realistic light.
