About me

My Experience and What I Offer
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist who works with young people and adults, aged 17 upwards. 

What approach, or approaches to therapy are used, and the length of therapy depends on what treatment plan we decide on during an initial free discussion with you.   I offer the following approaches to therapy:
Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Humanistic Counselling and Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-Cfd)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Some of the main areas of my experience and training are depression, anxiety, grief, loss and adjustment, trauma and relational difficulties.  My Doctoral Research focus was family breakdown.

What to Expect
I offer a free initial telephone appointment for us to discuss what you would like to focus on in therapy, to think about what type of therapy/therapies might be most helpful for you and to answer any questions you may have.  

Sessions are for 50 minutes and are usually weekly, sometimes every two weeks for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).  These sessions can be on-line via Zoom, Skype or Teams, by telephone or face to face in Redhill, Surrey (depending on personal circumstances and Covid).  

Clinical Supervision
I am an experienced Clinical Supervisor, both in the NHS and the Voluntary Sector.  I was trained as a Clinical Supervisor at the University of Surrey.  Prior to training as a Psychologist, I was a Clinical Supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience in working with young people and adults in a College of Further Education and in long and short term services in the NHS.   

I qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Humanistic Counselling and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy as part of my Practitioner Doctorate at the University of Surrey.  I also offer Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), for which I trained with Richman EMDR Training in London, and Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT).  I completed my training in DIT with the Anna Freud Centre in London.  I have recently undertaken further training in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for depression (PCE - Cfd) with Metanoia, London.

Prior to becoming a Counselling Psychologist, I was a General Nurse in hospitals and a school nurse in two international schools.  I also taught health studies and volunteered for Cruse Bereavement Care for many years.

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.
