About me

Working face to face and remotely with adults, young people. and children I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments and charge £60 per session. Looking after our mental health is more important than ever before in these extraordinary and challenging times. The power of a safe space to talk and a supportive therapeutic relationship can be life changing.

I have worked within schools and NHS settings for over 8 years, working with a huge range of clients with wide ranging issues. These have been a mixture of short-term contracts of 6-8 sessions and longer term psychotherapy for up to 2 years. Presenting issues I have commonly worked with include self harm, eating difficulties, sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, bereavement and life adjustment amongst many others.

I work in an integrative person-centered approach using a variety of Developmental, Creative and Cognitive Behavioural techniques. My core training is in Transactional Analysis and I am especially interested in Attachment Theory. Both modalities have a huge impact on our our relationship with ourselves and everyone around us and are so important for positive mental health. I use these frameworks as they provide a very accessible structure and are easily understood. The techniques I use, can therefore be implemented easily and are very effective. Comparatively, I enjoy using play and creative methods with younger clients.

I really enjoy helping people through a warm relational approach and guide them to understand themselves better and then show them the tools that can help facilitate them to continue in a more positive way on their journey through life.

I have recently become affiliated with AVIVA and Private Patients.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
