Anxiety, Depresson, Borderline Personality Disorder

About me

Anxiety and Depression

I work closely with individuals, learning to understand anxiety and depression from their prospective, how they feel, what they believe, and how they see themselves in the world around them. Together we work towards tackling problems, with a view for the person to be able to self-cope and more independent when problems arise.


Borderline Personality Disorder / Emotional Unstable Personality Disorder(BPD/EUPD)

The first appointment is an assessment in order for me to begin to understand a person’s background, and the level at which Bpd and /or a co-morbid condition effects their function, and how they currently cope with their emotions and relationships, and if I can help someone. The following appointments would focus on learning about how and why we react the way we do within a Bpd and /or co-morbid condition spectrum, and begin to learn about how to manage the condition day by day, if that is possible.

When working I use a combination of DBT, CBT and traditional Psychotherapy and Counselling. I often suggest working on, or considering what has been discussed during a session, in order to maintain therapeutic momentum if that is possible.  

Having experienced Bpd myself, I have an insight into both the anxiety and sometimes disturbing effects the condition can bring, from both a patients and therapists prospective. 

I specialise in the following conditions

Obsessive Compulsive Behaviours (OCD), Narcissism, LGBTQ+🏳️‍🌈, Self-Esteem and Confidence, Panic Attacks, Work Related Issues, Grief and Loss.

Abuse, Trauma and Domestic violence:

I work with patients who are victims of traumatising events.

Often these experiences leave a post traumatic disturbance with the individual, family or group. Those affected frequently have a feeling-memory of the event, that invades their life on a daily basis. Using Integrated Psychotherapy and Counselling, I am able to work with people sensitively, in order to help them begin to work through their critical experience, towards more self control and balance.

As an Integrative Psychodynamic Therapist, I use a variety of therapeutic models when working with patients. I practice Relational Psychotherapy, and incorporate the models of Existentialism, Psychodynamic Transference Focused Psychotherapy, Humanistic Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy elements (DBT),  Transpersonal Philosophy, and Mindfulness Therapy.

I work with patients from 18 years of age.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

I have an elevator to my office.
