About me

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting prospect but I can offer you a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment to explore the issues that you bring.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist drawing on the models of Gestalt, DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Mindfulness. This enables a holistic approach to each individual client so that we can explore your personal struggles in a supportive, encouraging way. Appropriate challenging can help the client to consider patterns of behaviour and look at incorporating new, more effective ways of approaching difficult situations.

I have a background in working with clients of all ages, and with a variety of mental health issues. However, no matter what your struggles are I can draw on my experience and training to offer short-term or long-term work. Needless to say, all members of our community are welcome.

I work in a quiet therapy room with free on-road parking.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
