About me

My counselling work over 20 years has been with adults, families, young people and children. I have worked in various setting including GP Practice, University Counselling, NHS, Prison Service and in schools. I am a provider for various Health insurers such as AVIVA, BUPA, WPA and Prudential.

I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited and Registered qualified and experienced psychotherapist who offers Integrative psychotherapy which can be long/short term or open ended. In addition I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing ) Practitioner working with Adults who have experienced trauma.

I run my own private practice in Ely called Cherry Hill Counselling Practice. You can find me at www.cherryhillcounsellingpractice.org.uk

I understand that seeking counselling/therapy for the first time can often make people anxious and nervous. This is a normal experience, and is why when you contact me by phone, we discuss what has initially brought you to make the call and to see if in our first appointment, we can both relate to one another and more importantly to see if you can feel comfortable in working with me to gain insight and understanding over your life to move forward.The way I practice depends on you and your needs. I follow a broad-based approach which will look at how you feel, how you think and how you behave in the world.

Depending on these factors you may wish to focus on short-term problem solving, how to cope with the difficulties that life can throw at us. On the other hand you may wish to look deeper into how you came to be as you are - your past can tell us a lot about your present. The focus of my work is to help you change in whatever way you wish to do so. Conversations in your counselling sessions will then be the two of us looking carefully and closely at how you manage your relationships, your health, your work, any life issue which causes you distress or concern.

I initially trained as an integrative psychotherapist in, drawing upon different stands of therapy such as humanistic, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic, gestalt and transactional analysis. I then later specialised in forensic psychodynamic psychotherapy, solution focussed work and trauma offering EMDR.

These trainings have given me a flexibility in the way in which I work and your therapy. I work with your current situation and by exploring how the past has influenced the present. I can also help you look at how you relate to those around you, family members, friends and colleagues and to gain a new understanding of these relationships.

I have a particular interest in the following:-

  • Feeling sad, lack of confidence and not feeling good about yourself.
  • Trauma
  • Work related stress.
  • Coping with loss of all kinds - the death of a loved one or a relationship.
  • Anxiety, Depression, Panic attacks.
  • Mental and Physical Health Concerns.
  • Major life events- giving birth, being in relationship, leaving school, living away from home for the first time

Clinical Supervision

I offer supervision to other practitioners including psychotherapists and counsellors as part of my practice either individually or in small groups. This provides therapists a place to discuss ethical issues, own well being as a therapists, professional practice issues and a chance to reflect upon the therapeutic alliance with current case load.

Confidentiality & Safety

Counselling/Psychotherapy and Supervision are confidential. I will not pass on any information concerning you or the issues discussed to anyone outside of the counselling relationship except in exceptional situation. If this were the case I would hope to discuss the situation with you before deciding to take any further action. I abide by the data protection legislation and am registered with the Information Commissioners Office and have my own Indemnity Insurance.

Ethical Framework

I abide by British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and their Professional Conduct Procedure. I am a member of the UK EMDR Association

As a BACP psychotherapist, EMDR practitioner and Clinical supervisor I am in supervision, which is a form of consultative support. I must therefore discuss our work with at least one other person. My supervisor is also bound by rules of confidentiality so in practice there will not be a breach of trust.

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.
