About me

I am a psychodynamic therapist; I am able to use CBT interventions when required. I am also a trained EMDR therapist. My approach to counselling is ‘client centred’ working with clients on their individual needs. I believe it is firstly the relationship between the counsellor and client(s) which provide the foundation to explore, understand, challenge and change patterns of behaviour which are causing difficulties and personal distress. Psychodynamic therapy can help clients to gain insight into their lives and their present day problems in order to develop new ways of coping to live a happier life.

EMDR therapy enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. This therapy is successful in treating people suffering from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post-traumatic stress and many other emotional problems. EMDR therapy technique is most effective when used in conjunction with other traditional methods of therapy.

Many people come to counselling for many different reasons, talking to a professional can help you to make sense of your thoughts and feelings and can be the first steps to looking after you, and ultimately getting better. I have experience in helping people with a huge range of issues including depression, trauma, anxiety, bereavement, relationships, anger, stress, OCD, phobias, exam stresses and disordered eating and many more issues. I work with both young people and adults. I am also a clinical supervisor.
