A warm welcome! At a time when levels of uncertainty in life are greater than usual, we can feel extremely vulnerable. With the current national emergency, adjusting to many changes can be challenging. My aim is to provide a warm, calm and compassionate approach to help you cope better with the issues you are struggling with during these difficult times from the comfort of your home.
My aim is to provide a warm, calm and compassionate approach to support you towards achieving your goals. Our therapeutic sessions will be tailored to meet your unique needs, based on a shared understanding of your concerns and problems. We will work collaboratively and I can help you live more fully, drawing from your internal resources and abilities.
I offer both short-term and long term therapy for adults. I work with various psychological approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.
If you feel that you are trapped by negative thoughts, this is where Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help. Unlike other forms of psychotherapy, CBT focuses specifically on the problems and difficulties that you are experiencing now, rather than issues based in the past.
If you feel that you would like to make sense of your existing situation and of the feelings and thoughts and associated memories that are brought about by this situation, this is where Psychodynamic Therapy can help. In Psychodynamic counselling, these feelings, thoughts, images and even dreams can be analysed to gain a deeper understanding of how you relate to yourself and to others.
I also specialise in the use of Expressive Writing as a therapeutic intervention which can offer you an alternative or additional way of expressing, processing and sharing difficult feelings.
As well as working in private practice I also work in the NHS in two primary care clinics where I offer short-term counselling to adults affected by depression, anxiety disorders, stress in the work place, work-life imbalances, phobias and fears, low self-esteem and confidence, relationship issues, bereavement, grief and loss.

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.
