About me

As a mature professional counsellor with many years experience I offer compassionate non judgemental, interactive and engaging solution seeking therapy.

I have a special interest in Anxiety and Stress related conditions and use a combination of person centred CBT and EMDR therapies to address these issues. If you are struggling with Anxiety do give me a call.

In addition I also have very extensive experience of using Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) for trauma resulting from assault, accidents, and childhood abuse.

EMDR can also be effective as part of an integrated therapy for the treatment of unresolved trauma stemming from childhood experiences which repeatedly have a negative influence on adult behaviour, often resulting in negative self belief, anxiety and panic attacks, depressive episodes and Obsessive Compulsive disorders (OCD).

EMDR appears to mimic what the brain does naturally during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, as such can be thought of as an inherently natural therapy which assists the brain in working through distressing material. The process of mimicking or bi-lateral stimulation involves the client following the therapists fngers as they move from side to side.

EMDR is recommended by NICE as a treatment of choice for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

I also have considerable experience of dealing with the following issues;

Worry, stress and depression
Difficulty sleeping
Relationship issues, e.g. affairs, separation and divorce

Work related relationship issues
Improved communication
Anger Management  and communication e.g. arguments or not talking
Bereavement and loss

Teenage problems
Difficult childhood memories
Health related issues and life changes

Dealing with difficult memories or trauma after
accident, assault, childhood abuse and rape

Maybe you just need to talk things over with an independent professional who is 'outside' the situation..

I will welcome and deal sensitively with you inquiry. Messages left by answer phone are secure.

I use a sensitive non judgmental solution orientated approach to help you find solutions to the problems you are experiencing in the shortest possible time.
