About me

I am a qualified Relate Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist working with adults, chidren and families on issues including anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.

CBT is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence as effective in the treatment of a wide range of psychological and emotional disorders, such as depression, anxiety and phobias. For 10years I worked in a GP practice, using CBT and Interpersonal skills with adults and young people. In 2015 I completed an M.Sc course in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.

In therapy with young people I draw on many years experience as a Primary and Special Needs teacher, and my understanding of emotional and behavioural difficulties. During 5 years as a therapist for young people in foster care I worked with issues around attachment, abuse and anxiety. To support Carers, I regularly delivered training in Life Story work, supporting anxious children and those with attachment difficulties.

As a Relate qualified Counsellor I help couples and individuals with relationship difficulties, as they make sense of changes in their lives; whether this is by working to improve a relationship or to have conversations about separation. A lot of the work inevitably involves resolution of conflict and, occasionally, the impact of domestic violence. I offer a safe and non-judgmental environment in which these difficult issues may be explored.
