About me

Life inevitably gets tough sometimes. It may be that you have experienced something that has deeply impacted you, or you may feel unsure about something, you may be struggling with anxiety or depression, or you might be feeling overwhelmed, stressed or stuck. You may have a particular problem or issue that you’d like to discuss with someone in confidence. Or, it may be behaviour change that you’re seeking? Perhaps you’re having difficulty in your relationships? Or struggling to make sense of or come to terms with loss or issues that happened in the past. Maybe you just have a general sense that something isn’t quite right?

Training, qualifications & experience

My core training is in psychodynamic therapy and I am also qualified in Drug and Alcohol Counselling and Treatment to Post Graduate level I have twenty years professional work experience in supporting roles. I integrate aspects of CBT, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and solution focused therapy and tailor my approach to your unique issues.

Please feel free to drop me an email or give me a call me if you have any questions. I fully understand that taking the first step to get some help can be nerve wracking and I'm happy to chat through different options for you and offer as much support as I can.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
