About me

I have a professional background in dealing with and managing issues emanating from childhood trauma and sexual abuse, both within and outside the family environment. I am professionally insured and hold an Enhanced Level DBS Certificate.

Throughout my work in this field over many years, I have gained a significant understanding of the many psychological and emotional difficulties that victims face in moving forward with their lives and the valuable part that dedicated counselling support can assist in this process.

I have also worked within the voluntary sector providing therapy and counselling for people suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts.

Other areas that I am proficient in are Couple Counselling and all matters relating to relationship issues 

I also specialise in providing both in-person and online therapy for people suffering from the many negative effects of addiction. This includes the more common forms of addiction to substances such as alcohol, amphetamine, cocaine, food and nicotine etc.

Other forms of addiction that I provide therapy for include gambling, food, cosmetic surgery, shoplifting and work addiction.

More recently through the ever present and subtle pervasion of the internet and social media the demand for addiction therapy has dramatically increased in such areas as pornography, shopping, gambling and day trading addiction.

For clients seeking  further information on Addiction Therapy , please refer to our website . We offer both online and in-person therapy sessions which can be booked and scheduled via our website via our online calendar booking APP .

I am also able to offer evening appointments usually on  Wednesday and Thursday evenings .

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
