About me

As an experienced and fully accredited therapist  I offer counselling to both individuals and couples in Cambridge. I have worked within the NHS, Private Practice and have extensive experience of working at the University of Cambridge with both students and staff.

As a qualified supervisor I offer clinical supervision of other counsellors, psychotherapists and mental health professionals. I work with individuals, dyads and groups and have a wealth of experience working with therapists during all stages of their careers including training.

I offer both short-term focused counselling and long-term therapy. My aim is through forging a strong and committed professional therapeutic relationship I help clients identify and explore issues and work on constructive ways of resolving patterns of responding accordingly.

I have a special interest in working with eating disorders, and have many years of experience working with clients struggling with disordered eating and other negative and compulsive coping mechanisms including alcohol and self-harm. I work both individually and with groups in this area.

I also have extensive experience working with survivors of sexual abuse and rape, as well as supervising those who also work clinically in this area.

I believe our early ways of responding to others and how we learn to manage our feelings lead us to develop patterns of relating to both our inner and outer world in a compromised manner. By exploring these, much greater insight and self-awareness are gained and relatively small changes in thinking and behaviour can lead to far-reaching positive consequences.

People approach therapy for a myriad of different reasons but the important starting point is that they recognise that they may be feeling 'stuck' and unable to resolve their troubles. My view is that counselling is like physiotherapy for the mind, and offers the unique opportunity to look at one's own situation (whether as an individual or as a couple) more objectively within a confidential and non-judgmental setting. It offers the space to explore issues, gain far deeper self-awareness and seek resolution resulting in the opportunity to move forwards more positively.

I have worked in private practice for the past seven years, but my experience is extremely broad having worked with the University of Cambridge since 2002, Cambridge Rape Crisis and also for the NHS. My 'specialism' is working with couples with relationship issues, whether they are separating or remaining together.  I have extensive experience offering short-term focused therapy, working with Disordered Eating (including Anorexia, Bulimia, Body Dysmorphia, Compulsive and Binge-Eating) and also with survivors of psychological and physical abuse, sexual violence and rape, as well as supervising other therapists who work in this area.  I regularly work with anxiety and stress-related disorders, depression, work/study issues and addictive behaviours such as self-harm and alcohol abuse, both individually and with couples.

I designed and facilitated the Disordered Eating Group with the University Counselling Service, Cambridge for 5 years. I also ran both a postgraduate and undergraduate ongoing therapy groups for many years within the student service.

I offered numerous workshops and talks within the University of Cambridge covering topics such as Exam Stress, Time Management, 'How to Handle Your Supervisor', Self Esteem and Peer Support.

I was a tutor for a number of years on the year-long Supervision training course at the Institute of Group Analysis, London.

I have worked with and supervised at The Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre and SERICC (South Essex Rape and Incest Crisis Centre) for the past eight years.  I have designed and led various groups for survivors of Sexual Abuse and Rape and most recently a focused support group for Mothers of Young Survivors.

I co-ordinated the Peer Support scheme within the University of Cambridge for six years, training students in a 30-hour program focusing on effective communication, offering effective support, boundaries and crisis management. This role also included offering ongoing supervision and support of peer supporters through Reflective Practice groups and CPD events.

I am an active member of BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) having chaired the Executive Committee of the BACP: Universities & Colleges Division 2012-2013, as well as chairing the Conference Committee 2010-2012.

BACP

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.

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.
