About me

Hello, my name is Charlotte, and I am a genuine, caring, and very experienced therapist working privately.  I am well qualified in EMDR and passionate about what this therapy can do for you. I also use a person centred approach to help with low mood and anxiety, which some people find works better for them. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my page. I hope this gives you a sense of how I work, but if you have any questions feel free to contact me. 

I am available Monday to Friday at 10am, 11am, and 12pm and 1pm. I offer sessions online.

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and cost £80 for EMDR and £65 for person centred counselling. I offer both ongoing and single session therapy. 

I have worked for the NHS as a band 7 psychotherapist, and taught on the BA and MA Social Work programmes at Greenwich University. My main area of expertise is working with trauma, depression, anxiety, and problems in relationships. 

I believe strongly in the power of a good relationship between us. I am fully committed to you, and in supporting you in the way you need. I welcome feedback about whether we are meeting your goals in therapy. 

I am also a supervisor and I love sharing my passion for this work with students and people already qualified in therapy or related fields, who need supervision. There is a section about this on my website. Supervision is £60 per hour or £80 for an hour and a half, and it is well worth this investment. 

I have expertise in many areas, most relating to trauma. Specifically I work for the charity Stand Alone (for family estrangement) and One in Four (for childhood sexual abuse) and I continue to be well informed on these issues and campaign for better understanding of them. 

I work to the very highest professional standards and I am accredited with the BACP (MBACP, accred).

My core training was the MSc in Person Centred Psychotherapy, which I completed seven years ago. Since then I have had additional training in:

  • EMDR (EMDR Academy)
  • Mindfulness for Stress Reduction (Bangor University)
  • Mentalisation Based Therapy (Anna Freud Institute)
  • Diploma in Teaching in Higher Education (Greenwich University)
  • Diploma in Supervision (Distinction, The Awareness Centre)
  • MA Social Work

You may be feeling uncertain about whether therapy is the right option for you or if it is worth the money. These are very normal and important questions. However, I can reassure you that working with me will be a big investment for your future, and will bring you relief from your troubles and distress. There is a section called 'frequently asked questions' on my website so do take a look if you want to know more. I also have a section on resources on my website, so feel free to try some of these in preparation for therapy.

I have experience working with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low mood
  • Trauma
  • Divorce
  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Estrangement
  • Abuse
  • Dissociation
  • Relationships Issues
  • Feeling sad
  • Self-esteem
  • Panic attacks
  • Health problems

I regularly update my Twitter account with advice and information about EMDR, therapy, health, and wellbeing.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
