About me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor; CBT Therapist; EMDR Therapist; Therapeutic Supervisor and Hypnotherapist, and I have been in practice since 1999. I am also a qualified Drug & Alcohol Professional. I am a Registered Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, a member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland and hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate.

I offer Integrative Therapy to children, adolescents and adults for a wide range of issues such as stress management, anxiety disorders, confidence and self-esteem issues, body image, self-harming behaviours, depression, addictions, bereavement, relationship difficulties, and work related issues. I have expertise in working with clients who have experienced trauma, whether through recent or historical events and have specialised in working with survivors of sexual violence – focusing treatment on recovery from trauma, and the development of positive coping strategies. I work with my clients to create an individual plan which is tailored to their specific needs and use a range of interventions to help each person move forward in their lives.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) is an integrative psychotherapy approach designed for working with distressing or traumatic memories. EMDR therapy looks to help you properly process these traumatic memories, reducing their impact and helping you to develop healthy coping mechanisms. This is done through an eight-phase approach to address the past, present, and future aspects of a stored memory using bi-lateral stimulation. EMDR is the NICE recommended treatment for PTSD, and is also very effective with anxiety disorders; phobias; and low self-esteem.

Trauma Focused CBT for Children & Families provides a pathway for children and adolescents, alongside their parents to work through the impact of traumatic events.

Life Skills Coaching uses a solution focused approach to make changes to unhelpful lifestyle patterns, while identifying and creating new possibilities for the future.

Hypnotherapy uses therapeutic interventions to address issues whilst the client is in an enhanced state of mental and physical relaxation, whereby the subconscious is able to communicate with the conscious mind.

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.
