About me

I am a reliable, attentive and dedicated counsellor / therapist with over 7 years clinical experience in a range of professional settings (including an NHS provider, a GP surgery, several charities and a private counselling firm). I pride myself on surpassing client expectations and being flexible to their needs, preferences and goals. Whilst I bring an expertise in therapeutic concepts and relevant psychological theory, I am not the expert on you (that is your expertise in this relationship). It is through balanced collaboration that therapy is successful and I put you, the client, at the centre of all I do in session, being genuinely invested in your wellbeing and dependent upon your honest reflections.

I have worked very successfully with hundreds of clients from a wide range of backgrounds. I am highly competent in working with a variety of common presenting issues including, but not limited to; anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, grief, self-esteem, phobias, relationships, abuse, self-harm, trauma and eating disorders. I work integratively to draw on conceptual frameworks from a number of theoretical bases including; person-centred, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), transactional analysis, narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and attachment theory.

Our first session will be a chance for you share a little about what has brought you to counselling and the 2 of us can have a discussion about if / how counselling might be able to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified at The University of Manchester to Masters level (with distinction) and hold a 1st Class Honours undergraduate degree from the University of Nottingham. I have also consistently engaged in further training and development opportunities which has included specialist training in; anxiety, grief, personality disorder, trauma, sexual abuse and eating disorders amongst others.

I am employed as a Senior Psychological therapist for an NHS provider and provide associate counselling work for a charity and private counselling firm, through all of which I have established a reputation for dedicated and flexible work and excellent outcomes. I provide supervision to trainees in my employed role, run a monthly support group and ad-hoc psychoeducational workshops.

I am a registered member of the BACP, with whom I have been published, and I am about to apply for accreditation status which I have every reason to believe will be accepted.
