About me

As a qualified psychotherapist with nearly 20 years' experience of working with individuals, couples and groups of all ages, I draw on a variety of approaches to suit the individual needs of my clients. My extensive experience in many areas of mental health, and the broad spectrum of skills I have gained means I can help my clients to feel safe as they explore what can often be frightening or overwhelming life experiences.

I help my clients with a variety of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety / Depression
  • Relationship difficulties (couples or families)
  • Bereavement
  • Issues with food
  • Abuse (inc. Domestic abuse)
  • Suicide
  • PTSD and traumatic experiences
  • Exploring issues from childhood.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches as I believe the 'one size fits all' approach to therapy can be quite limiting. I prefer having a well-stocked tool bag of expertise and skills to suit the needs of my clients in any given moment. This means I may include dream work; hypnotherapy or relaxation techniques; Cognitive Behavioural techniques(CBT); Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP); Inner Child work; Play Therapy; Neuropsychotherapy; or attachment therapy.

I am comfortable exploring spiritual issues, particularly around suicide, death and dying. However, if you have no spiritual or religious beliefs, then we would stay within the bounds of secularism.

My therapy related qualifications include:

Diploma's in:

  • Counselling
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Dream Therapy
  • Psychology
  • Mental Health
  • Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Certificates in:

  • CBT
  • NLP
  • Inner Child Therapy
  • Self-harm & Suicide Awareness
  • Abuse
  • Neglect and Trauma (Level 3)
  • Safeguarding (Level 3)
  • Concepts of Transactional Analysis
  • Autism
  • Working with PTSD
  • Awareness of Domestic Violence
  • MA level certificate in Child & Adolescent Mental Health
  • Play Therapy

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

We are meant to enjoy life. To be happy and free to live and express ourselves without fear, to love and accept ourselves, and to connect in a meaningful way with others. For many, the ability to achieve these fundamental life experiences is blocked by trauma, fear, grief, loss or emotional disturbance. These blockages can manifest as depression, anxiety, anger, phobias, addictions and many other physical, emotional and mental health problems.

Working with a professional, experienced therapist can help you to find a new perspective as you search for your own resources for change.

My book, 'Who's the Boss of You?', explores limiting core beliefs - how they were created in childhood and continue to sabotage our lives as adults. Available on Amazon.

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.
