About me

About me:

I am a BACP accredited and qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor and Lecturer. I have 10 years of experience in psychotherapy practice within independent private practice, Relate, employee counselling services and freelance contracts. I am qualified to work with adult individuals and couples, families, young people and children as well as providing clinical supervision for therapists.
I offer an independent specialist service for Derby and the surrounding areas.
I am passionate about empowering people to recognise and achieve their potential. I offer confidential and non-judgemental therapy to help clients with a wide range of issues as well as supporting them to increase self-esteem, reduce anxiety, manage stress and develop confidence.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy dependant on individual needs.

I offer the following services:

  • Psychotherapy/counselling with individuals
  • Relationship therapy for families and couples or other groups
  • Young People’s therapy
  • Clinical supervision for individuals and groups
  • Corporate training
  • I am also available to offer training supervision and training therapy for trainee therapists.

How I work:

As an integrative psychotherapist, I draw upon the following theories to inform my work:

  • Psychodynamic
  • Systemic
  • Person-centred approach
  • CBT (Cognitive behavioural Therapy)
  • Brief Solution Focussed therapy

My experience:

I have 10 years of experience working with and supporting individuals and groups in various settings. I have extensive experience of working with clients with issues including, but not limited to: childhood abuse, rape and sexual abuse, domestic abuse, power and control in relationships, mental health, suicidal ideation, self-harm, relationship difficulties, affairs, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, life stages, sexuality, alcohol and substance misuse. Working with these issues has highlighted the importance of helping clients to build resilience, autonomy and confidence.


My Counselling Approach:

I work collaboratively with clients to help increase self-awareness and understanding of responses to the issues discussed. Increased understanding can help with making informed choices on any problematic issues or behaviours you wish to change, adapt or process.
Present day difficulties such as relationship issues, negative thinking, low self-esteem, disproportionate responses to stress and lack of confidence are often linked to unresolved or unprocessed experiences from our past. During therapy, I aim to provide a safe place for you to explore, process and manage these issues.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
