As an MSc qualified psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, with over 11 years experience, I provide a safe and confidential space to help you work through aspects of your life which perhaps are preventing you from moving forward. These issues may present itself in the shape of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or low self esteem.
I was trained in psychodynamic therapy, but believe the basis of any therapy is all about the relationships and patterns we unconsciously recreate, which hopefully can provide insight and clarity in your life.
I offer short term (6-12 sessions) and long term therapy for anyone who requires working through issues. I also have training in Career Coaching. In addition I now offer Single Session Therapy (Solution focused)
Life sometimes can feel like an uphill battle and it can be overwhelming to know where to start in seeking help. The first steps in getting support are always the hardest so if you are reading this then you are already on your way....
Redundancy, illness, relationship issues, trauma, and depression can often leave us feeling unsafe and lost. Sometimes we just need a helping hand in working through these emotions and patterns in order to start to make sense of the world and ourselves again.
I offer an initial free telephone consultation to see if and how we can work together.

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.
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.
