We can all feel overwhelmed at times with feelings such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties or struggling to cope with life's pressures. This can be triggered by an external event or things just getting on top of you.
Psychotherapy is a safe place to come and think about the issues, with the help of a trained and experienced professional, with the aim of feeling better and more able to cope.
I am a senior accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with over 27 years of experience within the NHS and private practice. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space for people to think with me and explore their difficulties.
I offer long term therapy, which helps address deeper rooted issues that are causing difficulties.
I also offer short-term therapy (6-12sessions) , which can also be very effective for people that would like to address a specific current issue.
Due to Covid 19, my practice is currently online. I see clients on Zoom, Skype or FaceTime.
My experience is with adults from diverse backgrounds and cultures, who struggle with a variety of mood disorders:
Work related stress
Issues around sexuality
Abuse, or feel victims of their early history
Stuck in their life and many more.
In an initial consultation we will work out together what you may need and what is best for you.
For an Initial consultation please contact me by text and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
