About me

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps you to change how you think (Cognitive) and what you do (Behaviour) helping you to feel better. It focuses on the ‘here and now’ problems and difficulties instead of focusing on the past, looking for ways to improve your wellbeing now. I believe that whilst we may sometimes be dealt a bad hand of cards, CBT can give you the edge to play it really well.

I specialise in CBT counselling in which I hold an MSc and have over 9 years experience with clients individually and in groups. I also have over 16 years experience working for the NHS in counselling and nutritional roles. I am an accredited member of the BACP (MBACP-Accred) and am a member of BABCP.

Experienced with a wide range of ages and from different backgrounds on a wide range of issues, including: self-esteem, eating disorders, food and mood, depression, self-harm, anxiety and stress (to name a few).
