About me

I am a humanistic & integrative psychotherapist with 20 years' experience of working with individuals and couples on either an open ended or time limited basis. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to explore your issues and find a more satisfying way to live your life.

Sometimes we look for therapy or counselling when a crisis hits; sometimes because we feel vaguely unsatisfied and feel that we could get more out of life. I came to therapy for the latter reason - something just wasn't working; I felt flat, disconnected and generally discontent. I learned how to be more aware, to take charge of my choices. This is the goal of therapy - to learn more about ourselves so that we can be more in control of our emotions rather than at the mercy of them. In the words of Trainspotting: Choose Life

I work with a range of issues, including self-esteem, depression, bereavement, life transitions and childlessness.

I offer clinical supervision either in small groups or individual sessions.

I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and cultures, and also offer sessions in German, and on Skype or telephone.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from Spectrum Psychology Centre in 1998 and accredited with the UKCP in 2000. In 2002 I completed a Diploma in working with couples, in 2005 I did a course on Brief Solution Focused Therapy and in 2009 I undertook a specialised training with BAPCA in working with eating disorders.

I am also an affiliate counsellor with a number of Employee Assistance Providers as well as being registered with BUPA, Pruhealth, and Cigna. I am also DBS checked.

While training, I worked as a counsellor in a GP practice, for the Domestic Violence Intervention Project, and Victim Support.

Prior to becoming a therapist I was an HR manager and trainer. I also worked in Germany for a number of years as a technical translator. I have fluent German and offer sessions in that language.

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.

If mobility is an issue, I also offer counselling via Skype
