About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

We all face challenges in our lives and more than often can overcome them. However, sometimes we become stuck; unable to find a way to understand and move forward from our difficulties. I can help you to understand what you are going through and equip you with ways of overcoming your difficulties by providing a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment. My aim is to support you in your therapeutic journey of self discovery; reinforcing your coping strategies, self confidence and resilience.

I am a qualified and experienced Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Person Centred, Mentalization based therapy and EMDR and use these approaches to tailor the therapy to your needs. I offer long term and short term therapy; this depends on your presenting problems and can be discussed in the assessment session.
If you have any questions then please feel free to get in touch via email or phone.
