About me

Hello! I'm a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with considerable varied experience gained over 13 years of practice, working alongside my clients to alleviate mental health, psychological & emotional difficulties. I have worked within the private sector & also with the NHS.

My private practice allows me to offer one to one sessions on flexible terms. I will always devise a plan of treatment that is best suited to your individual needs using evidence based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) alongside other proven techniques. Putting each individual and their circumstances at the centre of the therapy is of the highest importance for me.

Children & Young People: My practice history also includes working with children & young people however in private practice there are special considerations that apply to Children. So if you have a child who you think would benefit from therapy please contact me and we can discuss the most appropriate course of action.

Online Therapy: Please contact me to discuss online therapy if you have personal circumstances that would make this your best form of contact.

Home visits: In very specific situations that would be carefully assessed, I may be able to do home visits if this is necessary.

I also am able to offer sessions in Fulwood PR2 3BH.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified with a post graduate diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy in 2006, after completing a degree in psychology and a certificate in person centred counselling. I have completed additional training in Obsessive Compulsive Disorders & Treating Eating Disorders.

I have worked in general practice & inpatient settings, with conditions including stress, anxiety, depression, OCD, eating disorder, phobia & other accompanying omplications.
