About me

Depression, anxiety, addictions, abuse, PTSD, bullying, self esteem, confidence issues, self harm or relationship issues. I can help and know that anyone can change their situation, gain insight into themselves and grow towards their potential. The first step is making the decision to do so and finding a therapist to work with.

I offer a safe and confidential space to begin to assess where you feel you are in your life, and how you wish to move forward.

With over 12 years experience of seeing and feeling the healing potential of a strong therapeutic relationship, I know it is possible for anyone to change. I draw on different models of therapy as an integrative counsellor, and continue to enhance my skills through reflective practice, training and attending experiential workshops.

I am fully qualified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), which is a technique that works with the brains natural ability to process everyday experiences. Trauma disrupts the brains usual processing, but EMDR can get your brain and nervous system functioning again using bilateral stimulation of the eyes or other areas of your body.

I can work with you using EMDR to target and re-process a specific traumatic event such as a car accident or assault. Phobias, Anxiety, Fear and unwanted patterns of behaviour can be worked through in a similar focused and structured block over several sessions (short term work). Please contact me for more information in how EMDR can help in targeting specific issues you may be struggling with.

I may suggest and work with stabilising elements of EMDR while working with you in long term therapy.

I am a qualified Equine Assisted Psychotherapist which is a lovely and often empowering alternative to room based therapies. Working in the fresh air, the horses offer support and can access deep emotional places in clients with their highly tuned non verbal communication. Horses can gently reflect back existing patterns in clients relationships and encourage healthier ways of being. Please watch the powerful videos at the bottom of the page. Contact me for further information.

I have experience of working in short term counselling and long term psychotherapy for local charities and in my private practice.

I have experience of working 1 to 1

I have extensive experience of working in Psychotherapy groups within a Therapeutic community setting.

I also offer professional support to fellow practitioners.

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.
