About me

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and Counsellor offering a confidential and professional service for those seeking help in overcoming psychological difficulties and resolving distressing symptoms. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a caring, safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. It is very important to me that each person feels valued, heard and not judged

My practice combines and integrates different models of counselling which includes Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). This approach provides strategies to manage distressing conditions that can affect the overall quality of a person’s life. It focuses on addressing problems in a positive way teaching skills and approaches to make positive and effective changes. In my experience it really does make improvements to peoples' quality of life

If you are looking for help with Relationships, Anxiety, Depression, low self esteem, anger management or stress management, eating disorders, self harm or  confidence issues then maybe Integrated CBT therapy will suit you. We are all individuals with different needs.

More recently I have been working in mental health care with individuals who have been struggling emotionally and psychologically.

Over the years, I have helped individuals overcome various difficulties some including: anxiety, depression, low self esteem, stress, trauma, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, agoraphobia and others.
