About me

I believe that each person is a unique individual and ensure that therapy is designed to fit the individual, rather than trying to impose a particular approach or model on the person. I often begin with a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused  approaches, which means that sessions are future-focused, strengths-based and goal-oriented, and add in other techniques as needed.

I am the director and co-founder of Integrative Cognitive Solutions Limited (ICS Ltd), which I run with my husband. At ICS we view each individual on a holistic basis. After careful assessment, I work with each client to develop a treatment plan to address their specific goals. Our professional Assessment Procedure forms the basis for this carefully constructed treatment programme. All options are discussed with the client and they remain an active participant throughout the counselling process.

I started my career as a Social Worker in the Trauma and Abuse unit in the USA. I have over 20 years of experience working in the mental health field.

Member organisations

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.
