I am dedicated to working therapeutically in a way that is right for you and use approaches that will help you to get the best from your sessions.

EMDR is an effective and well researched therapy originally developed for the treatment of PTSD and aftereffects of severe trauma. EMDR is also successful in effectively treating anxiety, depression, avoidance, phobias and panic. These symptoms can arise either from major trauma or simply from the ordinary strains of growing up in a family and other challenges of life.
My practice is monitored by a qualified counselling supervisor and is bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and the ACTO Code of Ethics. I am also listed on the BACP Professional Standards Authority accredited register. I hold both DBS and ICO certificates.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

EMDR does not require you to discuss your trauma in detail and bilateral stimulation is only one part of the process. EMDR is a comprehensive therapeutic approach with principles, protocols and procedures with the goal of reducing distress in the shortest period of time.
A blend of counselling and coaching could be useful and more appropriate for your needs and as a qualified coach I am able to offer this. You can view my coaching profile on the lifecoach-directory.org.uk
I also have a online practice and offer counselling, psychotherapy, coaching and supervision online via a secure platform. Online appointments can be helpful particularly if you are unable to attend my rooms in person or prefer to work using technology.
I look forward to meeting you.
