About me

Are your negative thoughts and feelings leaving you feeling stuck, anxious and depressed? Is this affecting the way you relate to others whether in your relationship, at work or in any other areas of your life?

When we suffer from anxiety, depression or other negative thoughts and feelings, everything becomes overwhelming. We can go into spiral, not being able to think properly about what is really going on. This affects our self-esteem and we get stuck and trapped in negativity.

As children we develop patterns of behaviour and coping strategies to protect us against difficult emotions. However, as adults these patterns become destructive and affect us at an unconscious level. For instance, we begin to have problems relating to people, our relationships break, we find it difficult to function at work, we become anxious or depressed, we may develop eating disorder or use alcohol or drugs, etc.

HOW I CAN HELP:

In therapy with me, together we make sense of your difficulties, we get to know and understand these unconscious behavioural patterns. By understanding your patterns and coping strategies, you begin to free yourself from anxiety, 'stuckness' and negative emotions. You improve your self-esteem and you will build a more secure and confident self to rely on in every aspect of your life.

You are welcome to contact me on 07392022771 to have a brief chat or book an initial consultation to see how we can work together.

I have started to offer counselling in person alongside online in the present circumstances.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have gone through a five year intensive psychotherapy training at WPF, one of the leading training centres for psychotherapists in the country. I hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from Roehampton University. I work as a therapist in private practice.

I have worked with people from a variety of different backgrounds and suffering from different psychological issues such as depression, chronic fatigue, anxiety and panic attacks, addiction (sexual, gambling, drugs), sexual abuse, eating disorder, trauma, grief and bereavement. 
 
I have also volunteered for the Samaritans providing emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress, despair or suicidal thoughts.

I have a BSc in Psychology. I have done a great deal of research on mental health.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their ethics, standards and practices.


Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
