About me

I am an experienced therapist and am passionate about this profession. I work as a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, as an EMDR therapist, and as a Certified TRE® Provider. But the bottom line is I work with you, and the therapeutic relationship of trust and respect that we build underpins all that we do.

I draw on my extensive training to offer a bespoke therapeutic service, tailored to each client's needs and wishes. My integrative training is a thoughtful blend of respected theoretical approaches. At the centre of it is relationship – the relationship we have with our selves, others, and the world in which we live.

It may be that you have a clear idea of why you are considering counselling, EMDR or TRE®. Or perhaps you are wishing to explore a more general feeling you have, which is causing you concern, distress or just plain curiosity. I offer a safe and appropriate space for such exploration. This may be short-term and targeted or longer term and in more depth. Either way, counselling, EMDR and TRE® are all opportunities to take time for yourself; time to explore, discover, heal, change… and sometimes simply ‘be’ alongside your Self in the context of an ethical and professional relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience
