About me

I think it goes without saying that we all have good days and bad days, we all have good times in our life and bad times in our life, if you are visiting this page then I am guessing things aren’t so good, I'm here to help you start the upwards climb.

The therapy I offer is goal focused, looking for solutions to areas of difficulty. I work collaboratively with clients to help them understand what brought them to where they are now, we then think about what needs to change. We all know the old adage- ‘If you do what you have always done you will get what you always got’. Change is often difficult so I will support you to explore what needs to change and instigate those changes in a gradual unthreatening way.  This works for a myriad of difficulties, in my years of working therapeutically with people I have seen lives transformed by small and large changes made through therapy.  We can work on looking after yourself physically and mentally helping you become at ease with life and who you are.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have 17 years’ experience of working in Mental and Psychological Health, I am a qualified Mental Health Nurse, I have worked for over 11 years in psychological therapies, both privately and with the NHS. I am highly experienced in working with a range of psychological difficulties. I am a qualified CBT therapist and am also trained in EMDR, I find CBT and EMDR work really well together and have achieved great results using both.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
