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 room within a well respected clinic on the island, 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.

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.
