I offer individual and couples counselling. I am able to help with relationship difficulties, self esteem issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, stress and coping, as well as a range of complex issues such as eating disorders, substance abuse and recovery from trauma.
I am also passionate about helping families cope with trauma such as illness, postnatal depression, IVF, and marital breakdown.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have almost twenty years of experience in counselling and am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council. I am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Person Centred Counselling. I also have experience delivering Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
I also hold a Masters degree in Health Behaviour and am trained to help individuals who struggle with health behaviour issues such as eating disorders, smoking cessation and substance abuse.
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.
