About me

Is something negatively impacting your life? Perhaps you are struggling with negative habits, indecision or low self-confidence? Perhaps you feel stuck or repeating unhelpful patterns?

I am passionate about empowering you to change and achieve your goals. Highly experienced in working with clients both online and face to face, I work collaboratively with individual clients and couples offering empathic support, using individually tailored, proven techniques.

As a highly experienced Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Life Coach, I help you to change your thinking and overcome limiting self-beliefs to develop helpful habits and thinking patterns for lasting change.

My aim is to help you feel heard, seen for who you are and overcome any difficulties. I'm here to help you and believe we are all capable of positive change if we put the work in. I work with you to develop a deeper understanding of whatever they are dealing with, supporting you to feel, think and behave in a healthier way towards yourself and others.

Whilst the number of sessions needed varies case by case, I will support you to achieve rapid results and value for money.

I want you to achieve the goals and outcomes you want and I support this by using tried and tested skills and techniques, combining approaches to meet your needs. I am a down-to-earth person and my uniqueness lies with my extensive life experience, my ability to understand, build trust and gain results. I strive to create a safe, confidential and supportive space where my clients feel able to be honest without fear of judgement to explore, grow and change.

If you are looking for an approachable, supportive professional who will listen to you and provide you with the tools and skills to create lasting change, please do contact me. We will begin with a quick telephone consultation to see if I am indeed the right person to help you move forward. Your positive change matters to me and I look forward to working with you.

I specialise in working with the following areas:

  • Anxiety issues (e.g. Generalised Anxiety Disorder, OCD, Health Anxiety, Phobias);
  • Trauma and PTSD;
  • Stress & Burnout;
  • Depression & Low Mood;
  • Anger Management;
  • Unhealthy Relationship Patterns, Emotional Abuse, Codependence;
  • Habitual, Compulsive or Unwanted Behaviours including Addiction;
  • IBS;
  • Insomnia.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 25 years training and mentoring experience in the high-stress public and private sectors, and since 2014, as a therapist, counsellor and coach.

BACP

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.
