About me

I am an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, which means I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

In my private practice, I work with individuals and couples who self refer for counselling. I also receive referrals from GPs and EAPs and offer solution focused therapy working within a time frame of six, twelve or twenty sessions depending upon the individual’s needs. I also work on an open-ended basis, which means counselling can continue for longer periods, i.e. months or years.

I trained with Cruse Bereavement Care, a National Charitable Organisation, as a bereavement support worker and I also have experience in an educational setting having worked with young adults aged 16-19.

To enhance my theoretical knowledge and as part of my on-going commitment to my professional development, I attend regular CPD’s (continued professional development seminars) which keep me informed and up to date with current thinking.

Before training to become a counsellor, I worked in a residential home for the elderly.  I held the position of a Senior Carer and was responsible for the wellbeing of the resident’s which included adults with mental health issues and I am also experienced to work with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

Training, qualifications & experience

My approach to therapy is based upon psychodynamic principles which take into consideration unconscious processes and repeating patterns which manifest in an individual’s behavior in the here and now.
