About me

I am a Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. I have over 6 years experience in providing psychological therapy and can provide Person Centred Therapy, CBT, ACT, Non-Violent Communication, Systemic Therapy, Hypnosis and use various other psychological tools and aspects of different therapies as required. This is all provided within a humanistic framework valuing your uniqueness and strengths, within a therapeutic relationship emphasising respect, warmth and compassion. Within therapy this means empowering you and working as a team with equal power where you are always in control of the work and your are kept fully informed. I work with a wide range of issues from depression, anxiety, trauma, phobias, transitions, persistent mental health conditions and many other difficulties.

I specialise in stress and anxiety management. This means developing effective solutions to make life workable and more enjoyable again. I also specialise in childhood sexual abuse and understand the wide range of difficulties and distress experienced and later effects like trauma, low esteem. Additionally I work with LGBTQA+ issues and relationship issues generally.

I look forward to working with you and providing a safe space for you to be heard and collaborate on working towards your goals. I like to use a little humour and am very welcoming, so hopefully will get you to feel comfortable in therapy very quickly.

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.
