About me

Are you looking for a compassionate therapist who can provide a place for you or your child to be listened to and also equip you or your child with the knowledge and skills to become your own therapist?

I am a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist with 25 years experience of enabling both adults and children improve their emotional and mental health. I have worked in a variety of NHS mental health services including child and adolescent mental health, addictions and Psychological Therapy Services. As well as private practice I work part-time in the NHS providing psychological therapy to young people and adults who have problems with low mood or excessive anxiety.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an umbrella term that includes compassion focused therapy and mindfulness approaches. It is considered to be one of the most effective forms of psychotherapy to come along in recent years and and can provide you or you child with life long knowledge and skills.

In order to to become BABCP accredited I have undergone significant post graduate education and supervised practice in CBT with adults, children and young people.

I provide therapy at my home office in Four Marks and an office in Alton town centre. I can also visit clients homes and see children and young people at their school or college if appropriate.

Accessibility

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.
