About me

The thought clinic offers individually tailored therapy for both children & adults. We also offer couples and family counselling. We aim to offer initial appointments within 48 hours.

I use evidence based therapeutic interventions for a range of conditions, e.g. stress, anxiety, panic disorder & agoraphobia, depression, bereavement, behavioural problems, self-esteem problems, phobias, OCD, trauma & PTSD and health anxiety. This list is not exhaustive, so please contact me to discuss any issues you are experiencing that you feel may benefit from therapy.

I use a range of interventions, selected to meet your specific needs and goals. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Person centred counselling, Solution focused therapy, Psychodynamic therapy and Systemic or family therapy.

You can find out more about what to expect from therapy by visiting my website, www.thethoughtclinic.co.uk

Training, qualifications & experience

I have several years of experience of working in the NHS, with children and their families and also with adults with more complex conditions. I have also worked with adults and children with a learning disability. During this time I have also been a volunteer for a bereavement support charity.

I am a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and also HCPC registered. These organisations regulate the profession of Counselling Psychology and set the ethical guidelines by which I practise.

I have a degree in Counselling Psychology (BSc(Hons)) and a Practitioner Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (DCounsPsy) qualification.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
