Are you going through a difficult time with yourself or others and need a space to figure it out? Perhaps it is an unhelpful pattern that you have struggled with for years, and now is the right time for you to think about change. Or perhaps it is something recent that has had a significant impact on you and you need space to heal. Sometimes the most helpful thing to do is to take a step back in a safe and compassionate place, and try to understand and explore these difficulties, get to the root of them, and understanding the pattern that keeps them going in everyday life.
As a Counselling Psychologist, with experience in the NHS and various charities, I have worked with many different people who have sought therapy for various reasons. I am trained in CBT, Person Centred Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy, and I can collaborate with you to find the best approach to fit your needs and goals. Together we can explore and challenge these patterns and you can reach a place where you feel more content and compassionate with yourself.
Choosing a therapist can be difficult and anxiety provoking, contact me for a free initial consultation to see if I could be a good fit for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (Dpsych) - Glasgow Caledonian University
I have experience working in several organisations that offer psychological therapy to adults with a range of difficulties, such as anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), bereavement, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex-PTSD, and other issues that cause distress.
I have worked in many different settings, including charity organisations and the NHS. I have worked in specialist settings, particularly in alcohol and substance misuse.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
