Since completing my degree in psychology and my masters in person-centred counselling psychology, I have received further training in solution focused therapy, compassion focused therapy, transactional analysis and EMDR. I also have over three years’ experience with CBT in outpatient, daypatient and inpatient settings. I have previously worked with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues and self-esteem issues and many other difficulties such as social anxiety, dissociation and trauma and transference.
As I work integratively, I will formulate your personal therapy plan with you in the first assessment to address your needs, assessing which approach(es) will be most suitable. I am available for short and long term work depending on your requirements.
I can offer appointments with most clients from adolescent age upwards including adult work. I offer a flexible, non-judgmental and confidential therapeutic approach. Sessions are 50 minutes face to face (free parking) and longer appointments can be discussed based on requirements - longer appointments may be necessary for trauma and EMDR work.
Please contact me via email for an informal, no obligation discussion regarding your therapeutic needs. Counselling is based on the therapeutic relationship and a discussion prior to first meeting will help us both to determine whether we are a match for treatment.

Unfortunately, I am unable to offer a 24 hour crisis service at any point during therapy.
If you feel this is what you may require, please contact your GP to see what services are available locally to you.
I will respond to queries as quickly as possible but if your query is regarding risk or crisis, please contact your GP, your local emergency services, attend A&E or contact Samaritans (as they offer a 24 hour contact telephone number).
