About me

I have been practising as a psychotherapist since 2002 and I specialise in helping people who have suffered from a range of complex and debilitating issues such as trauma and post traumatic stress disorder, abuse (of several kinds), anxiety, depression, bereavement and a range of mood or eating disorders. I have also worked in mental health hospitals over the last seven years, as well as working in bereavement, rape and sexual abuse and drug and alcohol abuse services. This makes me well equipped to deal with the diverse needs of my clients.

Do you feel troubled, anxious, confused or depressed over any issues in your life? Are you worried about your relationships, your work, your lifestyle or do you have low self esteem? Have you suffered from any traumatic event in your life? Talking to a counsellor should help you examine and understand your state of mind.

I believe that each person and their history is unique. Therefore, I do not believe in the ritualistic prescription of any specific therapeutic approach. I prefer to build a sound and secure relationship first to encourage confidence and healing within a stable and honest relationship of trust and mutual respect and then move from there to using any one or more of a wide range of therapeutic tools and approached. I am trained in many different disciplines in my field and using my extensive experience and wide range of skills, I will work with you to ensure that our sessions are tailored to meet your specific goals and needs. I abide by the code of conduct of my profession and will provide a respectful and confidential space to help in supporting you.

I am also a trained and qualified Supervisor and supervise the workload and client management of other therapists.

You can contact me for an initial consultation. I provide one off sessions and short or long term treatment plans. I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
