My practice is in Seven Kings, which is close to the A12 and A406 and Newbury Park and Seven Kings Stations.
My approach to therapy is based on the belief that with empathic, impartial and professional support, people can find their own solutions to their problems. Owning the solution is the key to a sustainable, successful outcome.
Moreover, as research shows there is a strong link between a successful therapeutic outcome and the relationship between client and therapist, it is important that you feel comfortable working with me, and I with you. My advice to prospective clients therefore is: come along for an initial meeting and see how it feels. This will also give me the opportunity to assess how I can help; if I believe there are other more appropriate forms of help, I will tell you.
If you are unsure about whether therapy is right for you, or you have any questions about what counselling entails, please feel free to call me for an informal discussion. My diploma is in Humanistic counselling but I mainly work in a CBT way. (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, with over sixteen years of
experience and Registered Member of the BACP. I work with individuals from a
range of backgrounds presenting with a variety of difficulties including abuse,
anger management, eating disorders, relationship issues, depression, self
esteem and confidence, bereavement and specialise in addiction therapy.
I have over 16 years experience working for charitable counselling agencies and in private practice. I specialise in working with people who have addictions, and have developed a treatment programme that works by building small, manageable changes that become lifestyle-intrinsic; in other words they feel natural and therefore sustainable.
I always endeavour to meet a wide range of personal development goals and have completed training in Adult and Child safeguarding, Detailed Risk Assessment, Treatment Mapping and Health and Wellbeing.
Additionally I am a Registered member of the BACP. The Register is a quality mark of accreditation by the Professional Standards Authority for Health & Social Care.

What to expect from counselling
During your counselling sessions, you'll be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions. By discussing your concerns with you, I can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identify ways of finding your own solutions to problems.
It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.
