I am an integrative EMDR, Cognitive and Humanistic therapist, who is warm, approachable, caring and supportive. I consistently and endeavour to offer all my clients' a confidential safe space, where they can be comfortable and safely explore their feelings of distress freely without fear of being judged.
I am also UKCP registered and an EMDR Accredited practitioner with 16 years of counselling and psychotherapy experience. The focus of my work is trauma- informed and together we will identify the causes of your distress, understand what perpetuates them and reduce their symptoms or discomfort. My work is client-led, therefore, I believe that you know what you want from therapy and " what hurts and where your difficulties lie".
So together we will work at your pace to help you resolve your problems. Which my EMDR training augments by offering practical resources and skills to minimise your distressing experiences and current problems.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
