About me

As an experienced practitioner of 20 years, I am trained in the use of a wide range of counselling approaches to provide integrative, solution focussed, client led, bespoke therapy. During our Initial Consultation appointment, we can decide and agree on the right approach for you, that will get you back to feeling like your old self, or even better in the least amount of time.

Before becoming self-employed I gained considerable experience working with drug and alcohol addiction, whilst working for a national charity linked to criminal justice and by working at an independent drug therapeutic community. But I also have experience of the care industry and I did train as an Orthopeadic Nurse.

Throughout my Counselling career I have regularly engaged in on going professional development, adding a variety of skills to my tool bag. So as well as a Counselling Diploma, I have an NLP Diploma, Advanced Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy Diploma, Psychosexual Dysfunction Diploma and BWRT Diploma.

I specialise in working with Anxiety in all its forms, Panic Attacks, Fears and Phobias, Addictive Behaviours, Low Mood, General Anxiety Disorders, as well as feelings of low self esteem and lack of confidence.

However, I also Coach people who are just generally a little bit stuck. For example I've worked with several high achieving people who are bright and and have a very good lives, who were just lacking a little bit of direction career wise. I guess we can all recognise those times in our lives where it's sometimes 'harder to see the woods for the trees'. In those instances it took only a few sessions, to enable them to tap into resources which got them back on track and focused.

Member organisations

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work across many areas, but I specialise in areas of Fear or Phobia, Anxiety, and Low Mood. But of course people don't fit into precise boxes, so why not just give me a call or email if you'd rather and we can have a brief chat and take it one step at a time.
