About me

Thanks for visiting my profile

My style of therapy is Integrative, which means I draw on various models and techniques depending on the needs of my clients. If you would like to find out a bit more drop me a line and we can organise an online session, which will give you a good sense of how I work and whether my style is suitable for your needs.

My practice is currently online - using Skype, VSee, Zoom or FaceTime

As a BACP and UKCP registered Psychotherapist I offer a space in which to explore and understand what might be causing you difficulty. Through this exploration many clients report feeling more at ease and confident within themselves, their lives and relationships.

Below is a bit about me and my approach. If this sounds of interest drop me a line to arrange an initial appointment. During this session we'll get to know each other a bit and see if working with me feels like the right direction for you.

I see all difficulties and challenges as part of being human and I'm interested in what it means to be fully human. This approach helps calm anxiety and shame and enables a way towards experiencing the life you would really like for yourself beyond fear and doubt.

In addition, I offer various tools to take away, which can be used at home to quickly shift negative and stressful thoughts. One of these is a unique method through which to transform self-doubt.

I have a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and before training as a therapist I worked as a Designer.

What to expect during the session

During your first session we explore the issues, check that psychotherapy is the right action for you and see how you feel about working with me. After that I offer 4 initial sessions as an assessment period. This allows time to really see whether working together can help you moving forward. At this point we review and if we agree that this is of benefit we would then continue our work together on a weekly basis.

For individuals -

Our work together is confidential and is a space for you to talk about the things that are troubling you. These may be related to current situations or difficulties that you've been struggling with for some time. My job is to reflect back what I hear and help you get a sense of the patterns that may be keeping you stuck or causing distress. Together we then explore how best to move forward. It can be a huge relief to give voice to difficulties feel heard and understood. I also offer exercises and work to do in between sessions.

For couples -

Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much of my work as helping couples find their way back into connection.

We aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of our partner. What I offer is an opportunity to learn new ways to communicate and as a result develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.

Below is a summary of the issues I often work with -

  • - Fear & anxiety
    - Self-doubt
    - Partnerships & marriages
    - Stress
    - Dream work
    - Loss and bereavement
    - Addiction
    - Social anxiety
    - Sex and sexuality
    - Relationship & family issues
    - Sexual abuse
    - Low self-esteem
    - Depression
    - LGBTQ issues
    - Compulsive behaviour
    - Body dysmorphia
    - Trauma
    - Affairs & betrayal
    - Shame

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.

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.
