If you are currently feeling stuck; struggling to manage feelings of loss, bereavement, have historical trauma related issues, stressful relationships with yourself and others or work related issues, therapy can be helpful in that you can learn to self-regulate and process these feelings and move forward in your life.
I am trained and registered as an integrative psychotherapist with experience in working with adults, couples and families. As well as my private practice, I work part-time for an organisation leading in offering trauma focused therapy. I have a background in clinical work with people with enduring mental health illnesses and children with emotional behavioural difficulties.
I have developed my practice to offer coaching sessions for personal development and trauma informed yoga for more complex presentations.
I use solution focused, gestalt, psycho dynamic, cognitive and behavioural approaches to therapy. I would be pleased to have an informal chat or meeting to explore what you would like to bring to therapy and how we would work together. I offer concessions to those that are out of work, low income and care workers struggling with compassion fatigue at this difficult time. I offer online and telephone sessions as well as face to face.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I understand that many people are struggling financially due to the current crisis and might be out of work or on a low income. I am therefore offering concessionary fees where this is the case.
I currently have a few spaces in the evening and weekend. I offer telephone and online sessions where face to face are not possible.
