About me

Currently, and for the duration of the restrictions following Government advice and action for the safety of all, I will be available for counselling sessions through the medium of telephone, Skype, Zoom, or Teams.

BACP : 'The face to face conversational element of therapy, combined with the length of exposure during a typical therapy session, puts you and your clients at particular risk'

Telephone number and Skype details on request via the Counselling Directory contact form.

I offer open-ended and short-term counselling in Cookham, Berkshire within a wide range of issues:
Fear of Flying (EMDR),  Couples Counselling,  Confidence Issues, Panic and Anxiety Attacks, Work stress and Depression, as well as Coaching, Mediation and Stress Management Consultancy. I also work with Fear of Travelling on Trains and Tubes (EMDR), OCD and Phobias.
Fully trained and with extensive experience in working with PTSD both in my private practice and as a registered provider for most of the major UK Insurance Companies and EAP's (Employee Assistance Programme). I am also an PFOA approved counsellor.

In addition I offer a Chronic Pain Protocol using the EMDR Model.
Sometimes pain can continue longer than expected. Long term pain can lead to changes in the nervous system causing the pain to become 'locked' in the nervous system. EMDR is a means of stimulating the nervous system to help it change the pain response.
It does not of course remove the causation or medical condition. It simply creates a different reponse to the pain.

I also provide therapeutic services, including counselling and trauma management, for major Employee Assistance Providers, Human Resource Departments and Private Health Care Companies in the UK and am a registered provider for most of the major UK Insurance Companies and EAP's

My counselling orientation is Eclecticism. This approach gives both myself and my clients the freedom and the flexibility to work within a wide range of counselling approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In other words, the client does not have to fit into an already prescribed model. The model is instead individually fitted to the needs of each client. My style is warm, though pragmatic, and feedback from clients would seem to indicate that I am easy to talk to. I believe it is necessary to be able to demonstrate understanding and respect for the client's 'story' before a client can feel sufficiently confident and supported to move forward within the work.
