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.
I work successfully with a broad range of problems from anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationship difficulties as well as trauma, however, my specialisms are anger, emotional eating and other addictive processes. I have 11 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 also work as an addicition therapist at a private treatment centre in Nottingham so have knowledge of the 12 steps Program regarding addiction of any kind.

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.
