About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, currently also working for the NHS as a psychodynamic counsellor- a talking therapy. I always keep in mind how difficult it can be to take the first step to see a counsellor, and offer a supportive environment with this in mind. I have experience of working with a variety of issues, especially anxiety and depression, and offer a way of working that is specific to each individual. I use some CBT techniques, where appropriate.

I work with clients both short term and long term, I also have experience of working over the telephone. I can offer to speak on the telephone initially (no fee), as a first contact.

I work confidentially and in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. I am a registered member of the BACP and completed a course accredited by the BACP (MHCPC). I have full insurance.

My background is in the Arts and I have also worked in a corporate environment. I have a degree in English Literature (BA Hons).

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked for the NHS as a therapist for over three years and still combine this work with my private work. I have also worked for MIND. The work I do for the NHS enables me to work with a huge variety of different people and feel confident diagnosing issues quickly.

I qualified as a psychotherapist from Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, I passed my diploma in full, after a rigorous three year course. I also have completed my 450 hours; required to apply for accreditation with the BACP, of which I am a registered member. My course was also fully accredited by the BACP.
