About me

*****CURRENTLY ONLY PLACES FOR EMDR CLIENTS 
 I am experienced in working with ANXIETY/PANIC,  TRAUMA & PTSD (Rewind & EMDR therapist), and how these affect our relationships.  You may require short term sessions, or you may feel you would like to explore deeper issues; here I can provide longer-term counselling. 

I also offer hypnotherapy to enable clients to develop relaxation techniques & coping strategies that work for you. I use a wider approach where together we can look at different ways which will support and help you to cope with or alleviate your distress. 

As a Relational Coach I might also help you move forward with your life/work/relationships once we have explored and worked through your distress.

Alongside my experience of working with traumatised clients I studied use of The Rewind Technique under its founder, Dr David Muss in London . I also offer evidence-based method EMDR( Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing). Used within NHS settings to help those experiencing symptoms of PTSD (eg flash backs, night terrors, bodily sensations, & relationship difficulties etc.) trauma can often be processed more thoroughly and quickly than coventional approaches. 


Availability/FEES:Mon-Thurs; £50.00 online and Face to face , EMDR £60 ( some Saturdays available at £55 & EMDR £60) per session.

Fellow Therapists SUPERVISION: £50 per 60 minutes, £60 for90 minutes

Enhanced Vetting & Barring Certificate(NHS)

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and believe firmly in providing an ethical and confidential counselling service. I am an experienced Health & Social Care practitioner specialising in mental health issues. I have experience working in primary care settings taking GP referrals from people with life and relationship difficulties causing issues such as depression, anxiety, panic and OCD (obsessive compulsion). I have also worked successfully with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and victims of crime and trauma. My work with loss and bereavement was gained through my experience of working within a hospice setting and the wider community supporting patients and their family and friends.
Alongside private practice, I also work in an NHS setting; I provide clinical supervision to registered health practitioners(NHS) and also to fellow counsellors and psychotherapists.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
