About me

I AM AVAILABLE TO TAKE ON NEW CLIENTS AT THE MOMENT AND WILL BE WORKING BY VIDEO CALLING DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS. PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU NEED SUPPORT DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

I am an accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist and have been working with adults since 2000 in a wide variety of establishments incorporating the public and private sector. I offer CBT and EMDR and apply them to a wide range of anxiety and mood related problems. I have extensive experience working with OCD and trauma and believe that I offer a safe and friendly environment in which to explore the mechanisms that maintain common problems and then help people to break free from unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy and I am a fully qualified EMDR practitioner. My career began in 2000 when I worked at The Priory Hospital, Chelmsford. Since then I Have worked within the NHS and have been in private practice since 2002. I am accredited by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP).

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is different to counselling. It can be described as an active approach where therapist and client work collaboratively together. The idea is to help people to manage their problems by gaining insight and learning techniques so they can cope with their problems themselves. There has been more research done on CBT than any other form of counselling and psychotherapy and it is clear that CBT is the most effective.

Accessibility

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.
