Are you suffering with anxiety, depression or feeling sad, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, low self-esteem, relationship issues, family issues?
I have more than twenty years experience working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, helping people like you to overcome their problems and to feel happier, lighter and more in control.
I currently work as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist for the NHS, and offer sessions privately on weekday evenings and Fridays.
My aims are:
- to offer you professional and effective therapy for the problem(s) that you are experiencing
- to help you to resolve your problem(s) as swiftly as possible
- to give you tools that you can use to deal with issues that may arise in the future
- to give you a positive and affirming experience of therapy
I was originally trained in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling, which means that I have a wide range of theoretical models to draw on; this allows me to be responsive and flexible to your specific needs. My CBT training means that I can help you to resolve a wide range of problems, including depression, and anxiety disorders such as OCD, Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, Panic, Specific Phobias and General Anxiety (excessive worrying).

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.
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
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.
