About me

I am an experienced, fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP registered) as well as CBT therapist, working in both private practice and the voluntary sector for bereavement, drug and alcohol, family interventions, children and young people.

I have worked with individuals presenting with anxiety, General anxiety disorders, depression, stress, OCD, panic attacks and disorders, phobias, trauma, PTSD, childhood abuse, domestic violence, learning disabilities, agraphobia, bereavement, loss, sudden and traumatic death, relationship issues, suicide, addiction, eating disorders, bipolar disorder/ maniac depression and personality disorders amongst others.

I am trained in therapeutic counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as well as holding an overseas degree. I also received additional specialist training in bereavement & loss, sudden and traumatic death, trauma, coaching and the core concepts in mental health and Mindfulness.

I have for many years provided therapeutic support to children and young people as well as adults. I often work from a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy perspective, incorporating Mindfulness. I offer talking therapy, solution-focus-therapy, Schema therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, DBT, gestalt therapy, exposure therapy, trauma therapy, coaching to children, young people, adults and couples.

I use mindfulness with myself and clients to help them to become more aware of the present moment and in acknowledging feelings and thoughts as they come and go. It’s been accepted as a useful therapy for anxiety and depression for many years, and research suggests it's effective when practising reflection on yourself, switching off your auto pilot in order to discover your real feelings, and this can have an positive influence on our psychological and physical well being.

Training, qualifications & experience

For many years I worked as an agony aunt with couples and individuals who experienced relationship problems as well as children, young people and adults.

I have an overseas BA (Hons), a Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and a Diploma in therapeutic Counselling, as well as a Certificate in Bereavement Care from Cruse.  I am a registered member of the BACP.

I had further training in mental health disorders, sudden and traumatic death, drug and alcohol abuse, trauma and coaching. I abide by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy's (BACP) ethical framework for good counselling and psychotherapy practice.
