Are you struggling with drug & alcohol addiction? Are you in early recovery and need some professional help with relapse prevention & coping strategies? Do you often feel depressed? Is anxiety stopping you from setting & achieving your gaols. Do you think you're not assertive enough in your daily communications? Do you criticise yourself often? I can help you with all those issues. I am a psychologist and addiction counsellor. I offer short and long term counselling and psychotherapy using an integrative therapeutic approach, depending on each client's individual needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
My therapeutic approach is based on client-centred therapy offering active listening while emphasising with clients in a non-judgmental environment to support them to increase their level of self-awareness as well as becoming more self-reflective towards their behaviours. I also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is a more goal orientated approach.
I have been working within the NHS since 2013 in the field of drug & alcohol addiction seeing clients for one to one therapy. I am a full member of Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals (FDAP).

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.
