About me

Who am I?
I qualified as a counsellor in 1994 and have worked in private practice continuously for the past 21 years. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and a member of the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors.

How can I help?

Sometimes there are specific issues that we find we cannot grapple with alone; counselling can help us come to terms with these difficult life events. Often there is a feeling that although life is continuing around us we cannot find our own way through the mire or there is a sense of just not functioning as well as we could. Counselling can help to make sense of this confusion and find a positive path back to a more stable and happier frame of mind. I am experienced in working with clients with general issues including relationship problems, unresolved bereavement issues, anxiety, depression and stress. However, I do also specialise in working with people suffering with eating disorders or obesity

My Approach
I was trained as a psycho-dynamic counsellor but would now describe myself as integrative, drawing on many elements including Cognitive Behavioural and Person Centred theories. My training has also included short term focused work and couples therapy. In 1992 I completed an intense course in the varied aspects of eating disorders culminating in an MA. My final paper, which was published, reported on a research project with recovered anorexics and bulimics and what services they would have liked when they were ill. I work with individuals and couples.

What to expect from your sessions
I always suggest an initial session where you can experience how I work and can explain why you have decided to seek counselling. After three or four sessions I will hope to have made sense of what your issues are and where the work lies which I will share with you. I always review with clients every so often so that we can both get an understanding of what has been achieved and what work may still need to be achieved. 


Other areas of my work
From 2002 until 2008 I worked in the Eating Disorders and Obesity Unit of the University of Hertfordshire as a lecturer and researcher on all aspects of disordered eating. I have been quoted extensively in the media on the problems concerning disordered eating.

I am the co-author of a book which seeks to explain the emotional aspects of over-eating. The book also explains how to create therapeutic groups for women who are severely overweight to help with weight loss(Therapeutic Groups for Obese Women) and have jointly edited a book on responses to disordered eating (Psychological Responses to Eating Disorders and Obesity) both published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
