About me

I am a friendly and empathic qualified counsellor and at the moment additionally to my private practice I work within the NHS offering bereavement counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. This means that your well being is my prime concern whilst we are engaging in a therapeutic relationship. I will to the best of my ability offer you an environment where you feel safe, acknowledged and understood.

I am currently studying for a Post Graduate certificate in Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and as such I am looking for clients who would like to experience this therapy at a reduced rate, as I am in training. I would be particularly interested in working with you if you are experiencing stress and anxiety and now have a desire to tackle this so that you can make positive changes in your life.

Types of anxiety may include chronic worry, fear of anxiety and panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder(OCD), social anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and phobias. If you feel you do not fit into any of these catergories and would still like some help with anxiety please call for a chat to see if CBT would be helpful for you.

As well as anxiety and stress I am also seeking to work with clients who feel they may benefit from trying Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  for addictive behaviours.  The area that I am particularly interested in working with is those who feel they have a issues with compulsive or over eating.

Walk Talk Therapy

This is simply walking at your pace in a beautiful environment whilst experienceing counselling. It is proven that walking in nature naturally raises our mood and can reduce stress and anxiety as well as increasing the serotonin hormone that makes us naturally feel happier. If this idea appeals to you I am flexible on times and days and may even be able to cater for early mornings. The first session we would meet in a traditional setting so that we would have an opportunity to meet and talk about how this would work. Then from that we would meet at an agreed time and begin the Walk Talk therapy.

If you feel you would like to know more about how counselling, CBT or Walk Talk therapy could be helpful for you. Please give me a call on 07840 283 180.

Further information

I offer a no obligation 50 minute FREE consultation so that we can both decided whether working together would be a good fit and helpful for you. You do not need to decide straight away and after the initial consultation you can think about whether I am the right therapist for you.

If after the initial consultation you do feel you would like to start working together, then I can book you in for your first appointment.

If I feel my skills and experience are not a good fit for you or that you require other treatments that I do not offer. I will try to refer you on to someone more suitable for your needs.
