About me

I have been qualified and working as a Counsellor for the last 10 years, but have recently decided to gain my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, so am now a Trainee Counselling Psychologist in year two of my Doctorate.

I work from a Relational perspective, which means that I base my practice in Person-Centered therapy, but also utilise different modalities, such as Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, CBT and Mindfulness. I consider myself to be an Integrative Counselling Psychologist.

I work with young people, individuals and couples, either by telephone, in person or online. I have varied experience in dealing with different personal issues, such as; addiction, abuse, loss, depression, anxiety, pre and post natal issues with mothers and fathers, adultery, job loss, stress, depression, suicidal thoughts, relationship issues and many others.

Training, qualifications & experience

I originally trained as an NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor, and then decided to expand into DipHE in Counselling which was underpinned by my BSc Hons in Psychology. Since then, I have decided that I would like to expand my professionalism and am in my Second year of my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology.

I have training in CBT work, Mindfulness and maintain my Continuing Professional Development to ensure that I am up to date with new theories in Psychology and that I am continually expanding my learning base, in order to be able to offer my clients varying Psychological techniques, depending on their own personal experiences.

I am working towards my Certification in Havening Techniques® which is a new form of Energy Psychology and Psychosensory practice. I am utilising the Havening Techniques® with my background in Psychology and Counselling to inform my practice.

I am a Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), which underpins my ethical framework- how I work with my clients. I am also a Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and am included o their Register of Proficient Counsellors and Psychotherapists in the UK.
