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.

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.

BACP

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.
