About me

I offer EMDR and CBT (including ACT and CFT) online for adults. I specialise in working with a range of anxiety issues including general anxiety, stress, trauma (including attachment trauma) , PTSD, phobias, panic and OCD.

EMDR and CBT are equally as effective online as in person and the added benefits include; time and money saved travelling, greater confidentiality as won't bump into anyone and clients often feel more relaxed in their own environment. Online sessions are usually via Zoom (can also meet via FaceTime and WhatsApp).

I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an effective and recommended treatment for trauma and anxiety issues including phobias, panic, OCD and attachment related difficulties.

EMDR is the recommended treatment for trauma in national and international guidelines including NICE and the World Health Organisation.

I am an accredited member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner. 

I have worked as a therapist for over 10 years in different settings. This has given me experience of working with a wide range of issues including addictions, stress, a range of anxiety issues, depression, relationship problems, childhood sexual abuse and trauma.

If you would like to make an appointment or find out more about the services I provide please give me a call on my mobile or send an email via this website.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
