I am a UKRCP Registered and Accredited Independent Psychotherapist (BACP) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Practitioner, with 21 years experience in this field. My role includes individual therapy with children, young people, adults, couples and families. Some areas of my expertise include trauma, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, emotional regulation and sexualised behaviours (harmful or otherwise).
I offer face to face appointments. I also offer remote sessions, which means I can support individuals from any location. EMDR is also available remotely and works as effectively as it does in person.
I am also a Clinical Supervisor, offering Supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

Other add on courses I have completed are:-

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.
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.
