About me

I provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for adolescents and adults with a variety of mental health difficulties. These include depression, anxiety, social anxiety, specific anxiety, O.C.D, Panic disorder, Health anxiety, personality disorder, P.T.S.D. and complex P.T.S.D. I also have a keen interest in working with self esteem as this allows the person to have a deeper introspection to their core beliefs and patterns of behaviour. With self-esteem work, we can also target assertiveness work, which allows the person to build confidence in whatever capacity they would like to. 

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc Psychology; BSc Social Work; Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (International Institute of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy); Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Belfast Cognitive Therapy Centre) BACP accredited; Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Queens University Belfast)  BABCP accredited; Masters in Trauma (Specialism in P.T.S.D.) (Queens University Belfast)  BABCP accredited.

I worked as a Social Worker with children and adolescence for 4 years.  After training in CBT, I worked in two IAPT services in London for Two years.  I am currently working in the Psychological Therapies Services and have been doing so for 5 plus years.  This is specifically working with adult mental health within the stepped care model.

I am currently accredited with BABCP which means I am always engaging in the most recent conferences and literature as this permits me to practice to the gold standard of psychotherapy.

Member organisations


British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies

The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.

BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have a specialism in P.T.S.D. which allows me to utilise the trauma focused CBT model for type 1 trauma such as R.T.A. and single incident traumatic events.

I also have a keen interest in working with O.C.D. for adolescents and adults.

Whilst working with childhood sexual abuse is more longer term work, I thoroughly enjoy sharing the journey of recovery with people that have been hurt in this way. I will adapt a more standardised CBT model, such as using a narrative exposure therapeutic approach.

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.
