I work with individuals with a range of problems in their lives, often for reasons that are not always clear to them. Difficult childhoods, relationship problems and work or money stress can leave us feeling low in mood or anxious and cause us sleepless nights, exacerbating the problems in a vicious cycle. Clients may have been told they suffer depression or anxiety problems, such as social anxiety, generalised anxiety, phobias or OCD. In each case, I work with clients to help them overcome unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving that may be maintaining their current difficulties and support them in addressing underlying problems to make it less likely that they will experience similar difficulties in the future.
I also work with couples to help them improve their communications with each other and find more constructive ways to make decisions and solve problems together.
I offer psychosexual work with adult couples and individuals with sexual problems and/or relationship difficulties offering long-term, open ended as well as short-term counselling.
I am also a specialist in sexual Trauma, from Historic childhood sexual abuse to recent, I can be here to help you through this process.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered Accredited Member of the BACP.
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.
