Are you looking for an experienced, trustworthy and effective therapist? Not sure whether counselling is for you?
I am an experienced therapist, having worked in both the NHS and privately. I work with people facing all number of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues and work stress.
I provide a safe and relaxed space where we can work together to explore and reflect on your difficulties within an empathic therapeutic relationship. As we are all unique no one type of therapy 'fits' all and I therefore integrate the therapeutic models in which I have been trained to meet your particular individual needs. I have been trained in CBT, and I am fully qualified in EMDR working towards accreditation.
