About me

I've been working for over 15 years with many different types of problems, such as depression, anxiety, abuse, and trauma. In that time I've learned to always respect the problem, or issue, as unique to each person. The most important component therefore is understanding. Only then can solutions and ways out be found.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm an Integrative Humanistic psychotherapist with a Masters in Clinical Psychology. I'm also trained in E.M.D.R. therapy, and arts therapy. I specialize in working with:

  • anxiety related issues
  • relationship problems including separation, affairs, and divorce
  • family issues
  • sex and sexual identity questions
  • depression
  • Culture related problems

Most of my career has been spent in private practice working with individuals struggling with the issues mentioned. I find that in the time I've been working I've learned that people are not only amazingly resilient, but also that people often grow from life crisis', and that depressions and difficulties with anxiety are also in time sources of strength. I don't think that you just need to be positive and everything else is sorted. I think life is complex, and often what we think is a weakness, or a bad event, in time we see differently. I'm happy to talk if you feel you need.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
