About me

I have over 14 years’ experience in counselling 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.

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.
