About me

About me

I am a fully trained, accredited and experienced Integrative CBT therapist. My approach is confidential, safe, friendly and relaxed. I trained with the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies at Regents University in Advanced Integrative CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with Contextual Consulting. I am an accredited Hypnotherapist and I am qualified to teach mindfulness to individuals and in groups. I am accredited by the National Counselling Society and the National Hypnotherapy Society.

Problems I can help you with

Research has shown that verbalising your feelings has a significant therapeutic effect on the brain. Taking care of your brain is as important as taking care of your body and talking about the challenges you face will improve your overall wellbeing. Nobody's life can be organised into neat categories of problems but there are often strong overarching and life limiting themes present in our daily lives. Some of these may include:


Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Panic Disorder

Social Anxiety

Seperation Anxiety

Health Anxiety

Performance Anxiety




Work related issues

Self acceptance

Body image

Relationship conflict

Separation and Divorce

Perimenopause and the Menopause

Pre and post natal depression

Parenting issues


Bereavement in Pregnancy



How I work

As an integrative CBT therapist, I include various methods of therapy evidenced to complement and enhance the CBT process, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Hypnotherapy. The benefit of this integrative approach is that I can formulate treatment to meet the individual needs of each person I work with. My main modality is a form of CBT known as Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). REBT is a brief form of psychotherapy and is usually effective within 6 to 16 sessions. It works on the premise that the negative emotions that we experience such as anxiety, depression, anger, and hurt are not so much about what happens to us but the view that we hold about the events. This explains why two people can experience the exact same event but respond in very different ways. The process of REBT involves identifying the core beliefs that keep you stuck in a cycle of painful emotional responses and maladaptive behaviour and changing them to beliefs that are healthier and ultimately more helpful.

What you can expect from our sessions

During our sessions we will work collaboratively to identify and understand your presenting problems and how these are impeding on your ability to fully engage and flourish in your life. We will then create a treatment plan to most effectively address these problems, connecting you with your values and the things that you want and love in your life, so that you can see how this new way of thinking and behaving brings you closer to to these things. You will learn skills that will serve you long past the therapy room.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
