About me

I have over 12 years experience in Mental Health Services and am an Accredited and experienced Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, with additional training in Supervision, Counselling and Guided Self-help.

Many of us go through ups and downs, or difficult life experiences, which can be hard for us to work through alone. I provide a confidential, relaxed and comfortable environment, to help you through this time in your life. I use evidenced based psychological therapies and support, in order to help you move forward and feel better able to cope. I have been described by clients and supervisees as very approachable and easy to get on with.

Here are a few examples of the types of issues I am experienced in helping with:

  • Depression or feeling sad
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Health Anxiety Disorder (HAD)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Specific Phobias (e.g vomiting, animals, blood, needles)
  • Panic Disorder (with or without agoraphobia)
  • Disordered Eating
  • Relationship Issues
  • Low Self-esteem
  • Assertiveness Difficulties
  • Confidence Issues
  • Anger Management
  • Perfectionism
  • Body Image Issues
  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
  • Loss and Bereavement
  • Personal Growth
  • Abuse (E.g Sexual, Physical, Emotional, Neglect, Domestic)
  • Bullying
  • Discrimination (Aspects of age, race, class, religion, culture, gender, disability and sexual orientation)

  • Long Term Health Conditions

Still unsure whether I can help? Contact me and we can have an informal discussion, to determine whether I can help you myself, or point you in the right direction.

More about me and my background

I have over 12 years experience working in Mental Health Services in primary and/or secondary care, with inpatients and within the community, in both private and NHS settings. I have worked with mild to severe difficulties and people of all ages, from children to elderly. I also have experience facilitating group work and workshops, as well as working with people with disabilities, learning difficulties, long term health conditions and autism. I have attended over 50 hours of personal therapy myself, which is also a requirement of my training, so I understand how this can feel on a personal level. I have also experienced some difficult times in my life and found the support I received invaluable.

I have extensive knowledge and experience of working with many issues people experience and am able to adapt my approach to meet individual client needs. I also enjoy sharing my expertise and providing supervision to Therapists and other Mental Health Professionals.

I am a down to earth and open minded person and have the ability to develop a good therapeutic relationship and connect with many types of people (as many client’s from various backgrounds have put it, I was not the stereotypical therapist they were expecting and they felt we could relate on the same level). I am able to listen and provide confidential support, without judgement.

In addition, I receive supervision for my clinical work and attend various training courses, which are both required on a regular basis for BABCP accreditation and they also facilitate my ongoing professional and personal development.

I follow BABCPs professional standards of conduct, performance, ethics and values and I hold professional indemnity insurance.
