About me

I am available on Monday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons. I currently offer sessions online and face to face.

Hello my name is Charlotte and I am a kind, knowledgeable, and experienced therapist working privately. I have a huge amount of experience working with all sorts of difficulties, so whatever is troubling you I will know how to help.

I have worked as a psychotherapist in lots of different environments over the last eight years, such as the NHS, Oxford Brookes University, and for various charities such as Stand Alone and One in Four. I have worked with groups, families, and individuals and currently teach at Greenwich University. I also facilitate support groups for bereavement and estrangement. My specialist experience is in treating trauma, depression, and anxiety. I use EMDR in my work as a way to treat trauma. 

My passion is working one to one and seeing the incredible change that can happen when people overcome whatever issue is holding them back. I believe therapy can help anyone who is struggling to find a hopeful way forward. 

My core training was an MSc in Person Centred Psychotherapy, which I completed six years ago. Since then I have had additional training in Mindfulness for stress reduction at Bangor University, Mentalisation Based Therapy at the Anna Freud Institute, completed a diploma in teaching in Higher Education, and completed my EMDR training at the EMDR Academy.

As my foundation is person centred therapy, I believe in the importance of building a strong relationship with you, and offering you a non-judgemental environment. This safety allows us to adapt to your needs while always ensuring you feel in control. I also teach you skills and strategies to manage your emotions. I do a lot of work using EMDR, which is a shorter term trauma focused therapy which can help with nightmares, panic attacks, stuck memories, and anxiety. 

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. 

When you are ready I offer a free, half hour informal conversation over the phone. My number is 07455263604.
