I am a BACP registered therapist and supervisor working with individuals and couples. I specialise in working with anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, low self esteem and relationship issues. I will work with you to recognise and understand your unhelpful patterns, and the anxiety and depression which results from difficult life events or past experiences.
Sometimes feelings can come out of the blue and seem to have no cause in the here and now. I will help you to explore and understand this, so you can make changes to how you feel.
I am a Integrative therapist and use Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic approaches.

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.
