About me

Anxiety, depression, chronic illness, bereavement, EMDR (adults and children) and relationship issues (couples counselling). EMDR for bereavement including using Dr Botkin's IADC (induced after-death communication). Also offered is Brainspotting and Flash. If you are feeling anxious, depressed or finding it difficult to make social contact, there is no time like the present to think about the changes you could make.  I  provide a safe, non-judgmental space where we can work on understanding your situation and how to make changes in your life. I aim to help you unravel issues, relationships and thoughts you may struggle with. I have experience working in the NHS, schools and charities, which provides me with an extensive range of understanding of mental health issues and the importance of accessing therapy as soon as possible.

I work mainly in an existential and phenomenological way but also use other therapeutic approaches. I offer a confidential service and can work with people of all ages. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents (in different settings, including in school) over a 16-year period. This includes children with special needs (ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Low esteem, self-harming, etc), trauma, anxiety and bereavement. EMDR is offered for both adults and children (face-to-face/online).

I also work with individuals and families and have experience working in various settings, including schools, hospitals, and charitable and private settings. I address many issues, including depression, anxiety, bereavement, social phobia, panic disorder, anger, self-harming and self-esteem issues.

CBT, including Mindfulness: I have used these techniques effectively with children, adults and groups.

Parenting issues: I have worked effectively with individuals, families and groups (including workshops in school).

Wheelchair user access
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.
