About me

Do you feel anxious, depressed or are currently experiencing relationship issues?

I provide short term or open ended counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) sessions in a confidential setting in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings in order to establish ways that can help you move forward.

I hold undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Psychology and Counselling as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in CBT.

Being trained as an integrative therapist means that I incorporate key concepts from CBT, Psychodynamic and Person Centred approaches with techniques that fit the client and the problems they bring into the therapy room.

My particular areas of interest include identity and cultural issues. The majority of my work involves working extensively with issues relating to depression, anxiety, stress and relationship problems. However I do also offer support to sports people with stress/anxiety difficulties and also during and after experiencing sporting injuries.

I respect all genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, religions and any other individual differences.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and British Psychological Society (BPS), my practice honours their ethical framework and codes of conduct.

I regularly attend supervision and professional training/workshops as part of my continuing professional development, and for my own interest and growth as a practitioner.
