Getting the right therapist is a really important decision. I have 11 years experience working in therapy and would like to reassure you that I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to explore your problems or difficulties.
I am an Integrative therapist that can work creatively to offer a bespoke therapy that is tailored to your needs at any particular time. Looking at your past history and whats going on for you in the present can offer useful insights into your own processing and coping mechanisms. Our aim of working together is for you reach a place of contentment, fulfilment and resolution. If this sounds what you are looking for then firstly:
1.- Call or email me to arrange an initial assessment.
2. -The initial assessment is where we can meet and you can decide if you feel we can work together to reach your desired goal in therapy. The sessions are 50 mins.
3.- If we are both happy to work together we contract for 6 sessions and then review to see if you are getting what you want and need.
Payments can be made by BACS, cash, or debit/credit card both over the phone or in person at the office
I work successfully with a broad range of problems from anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationship difficulties as well as trauma, however, my specialisms are working with anger, emotional eating and other addictive processes. I have 12 years experience working with emotional eating and as such can help to uncover the triggers to this addiction and work with you to help you find resolution to long term cycles of weight loss and gain. Through counselling I can help you to become more self-aware of your self-sabotage techniques. I have also worked as an addicition therapist at a private treatment centre in Nottingham so have knowledge of the 12 steps Program regarding addiction of any kind.
There are many different ways in which a therapist and client relationship may develop. I feel privileged that i have had a thorough comprehensive training in Integrative counselling that allows me to utilise the skills i have to bring about change. For some people talking is enough but for others a more creative approach may be in order. Whatever the approach, you are always in control and have the right to say yes or no to anything that may be suggested. In fact, that part of the therapeutic approach can be really useful particularly for someone who finds it difficult to say no to anyone in the outside world. People pleasing can manifest many different problems. Whatever your issue i would look forward to meeting you for an initial assessment to see how we both feel about moving forward to help you achieve whatever outcomes you are looking for.

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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
