I am an experienced and qualified Integrative Counsellor/ Psychotherapist who tailors my skills, techniques and what type of therapy to work with according to my clients needs.
I bring warmth and insight to my therapeutic work, which enables me to engage with my clients and work productively to help them reach their goal. I enjoy the work I do immensely as I help my clients to restart their lives again, gain self awareness and lead a more satisfying and fulfilling life. I have a passion for people, their minds and their well being and understanding of the difference that can be made to an individual once given the right support and a safe environment where they can express themselves with no judgement, empathy and confidentiality and as a member of the British Association of Psychotherapists and Counsellors I work to their Ethical Framework.
Sometimes life throws different obstacles in our way, these issues can be a result of many things, trauma, bereavement, relationship difficulties, problems at work, school, anxiety, depression, addictions, eating disorders, anger issues, low self esteem, loss of direction in life or even embarking on making major changes to your life, etc. Any of these situations that come about can be difficult, frightening and stressful for an individual.
I also work with Narcissistic Victim Syndrome and Narcissitic Personality Disorder.
This is where I could be of help to you as I use a variation of therapies according to your needs. To ascertain how we will work together initially I would invite you for a 30 minute assessment/ consultation which is free of charge. From there you can decide if you feel I am the right Therapist for you and we can discuss how you would like to move forward.
The therapeutic approaches I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Approach, Person-Centred Approach, Gestalt Approach.

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.
