About me

I am a BACP senior accredited psychotherapist with over 18 years counselling/psychotherapy experience. I work to help individuals and couples resolve emotional distress, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, low mood / depression, sex and relationship difficulties, family issues and gender and sexuality issues.  I'm also a fully qualified EMDR psychotherapist. EMDR therapy is used to treat a wide range of psychological difficulties that typically originate in traumatic and adverse life events such as experiences of violence, sexual abuse, accidents, birth trauma and traumatic bereavements.

I work flexibly and collaboratively, integrating a range of approaches to meet client’s differing needs. I have a strong commitment to culturally competent practice and endeavour to ensure this is reflected in the therapeutic process.  My focus is helping clients to increase their self-awareness, self-care, and resilience to enable them to cope with or make changes in their life circumstances whether this is related to work, relationships/family, identity, life stage, health or coping with bullying or discrimination.

Feel free to contact me to ask any questions.
