This is a difficult time for all of us. Although we are unable to meet face to face I am offering therapy either by telephone or via video chat of your choice.
I am a BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist with experience in working with Addiction, Substance Misuse, Eating Disorders and the underlying causes. I also work with Trauma, Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Difficulties, Grief & Loss. I have a strong background working with personality disorders.
I work with clients to establish a warm and trusted relationship to enable us to gently explore and work through the emotional issues that are causing concern. Through our work together clients are able to gain insight and understanding to enable them to make successful changes in their lives.
My approach is supportive & empathic to maintain high standards of ethical practice and is guided by the specific needs of the client incorporating various theoretical approaches. These include Transactional Analysis, Person Centred Theory & CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

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.
