About me

I am a UKRCP Registered and Accredited Independent Psychotherapist (BACP) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Practitioner, with 24 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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA Degree in Applied Counselling in Organisations, a HND in Psychotherapy and an A Level in Psychology.

I am fully qualified in EMDR and have my level 3 certificate.

I am trained to Level 2 in DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy).

I am trained in LMV (Life Minus Violence), which is a Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic package, designed to reduce the risk of aggression amongst Forensic populations.

Other add on courses I have completed are:-

Domestic Violence on Children, Trauma Attachment and Resilience, Sexualised Trauma, Motivational Interviewing, Smoking Cessation Level 2, Youth Work Level 2.

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.

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.
