About me

I am a Cognitive Analytic Therapist with many years experience working within NHS Psychological Therapy Services with a background in Occupational Therapy and relationship counselling. I have worked with people who have mental health problems, but also with those who are in distress, grieving or need to talk through difficult situations.

I have a therapy room in L'Islet, but distance or access needn’t be an issue as I also work via the internet, using a safe and confidential platform and by phone.

I always offer a free initial 30 minute phone appointment so that we can discuss what issues you would like to address, whether you feel comfortable talking to me, what the sessions will entail and an idea of how many might be needed.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy is a well researched and evidence based talking therapy with excellent outcomes for a wide range of issues. It is fundamentally a relational model and looks at the patterns of thinking and behaving we develop as we progress through life and which can sometimes contribute to relationship difficulties and mental health problems.

My approach is to work alongside you to create a joint understanding of your difficulties and use your own strengths as well as the scaffold of therapy to make changes and find ways of getting your relationships, career and life back on track.

Member organisations

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.

The Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT)

The Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) is a registered charity. They welcome members of the public, health professionals, ACAT accredited professionals, and anyone interested in finding out more about CAT. They list CAT practitioners.
