About me

I take an integrative approach to therapy and work predominantly within a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, but also draw on perspectives from other therapies to promote positive change.

The most important aspect of success in counselling is the relationship between us. I tailor the approach to your needs in collaboration with you so that ultimately you can become your own therapist,by applying new skills and techniques to determine positive patterns of thinking and behaving.

I understand that coming for therapy can be a bit scary or daunting, even if you have been before, meeting someone new can be challenging especially if you’re feeling vulnerable or out of sorts. Choosing to come for therapy is about caring for and prioritising your own needs, and allowing yourself time and space to think things through. I can help you cope with those painful feelings and distressing, upsetting thoughts, and together, we will find the solutions that help you.

I have Healthcare Professional recognition and am a recognised provider of medical treatment with VitalityHealth, Cigna and Aetna Global Benefits

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

I am a recognised provider with VitalityHealth, Cigna and Aetna Global Benefits

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and BACP/PP, and BACP/ CYP

I have worked mainly in the caring professions for over 25 years, including 10 years of helping people with alcohol and substance misuse issues in one-one and group-work capacity

I have worked with children and young people in primary school and secondary school settings in one-one and group-work capacity. I also work with parents who have concerns about their children and help them find the best way to respond to their children.

CBT approach has proven successful in the treatment of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, feeling sad, OCD and phobias. Therapy and counselling, in general, has helped many people with relationship issues, bereavement and loss, alcohol and drug misuse and various unwanted thoughts and feelings.

The combination of CBT, Solution Focused Brief Therapy(SFBT), mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and  Neuro-linguistic Programming(NLP) provides a caring,positive, motivational approach with practical techniques to call upon in times of crises.

Accessibility

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.
