About me

I am a qualified and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with extensive training and experience in a number of different therapeutic approaches. This experience enables me to offer a flexible and responsive approach that can be adapted to changing needs as therapy progresses.

I see children, young people and adults on an individual basis as well as working with couples and families. I have specialist interests in working with relationship difficulties within couples and families including separation and step family issues.  I also have extensive experience of work with anxiety, depression, behavioural difficulties and work related stresses.

For me at the centre of any effective therapeutic approach is a clinician’s commitment and ability to create a safe and trusting space from where an individual can feel secure enough to explore the challenges they are facing and to find new ways of negotiating, managing and coping with such challenges.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a Family Systemic Psychotherapist (Family Therapist) over 10 years ago and subsequently as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT). I have additional training, experience and interest in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). I have worked for many years within the NHS and I have extensive experience of working with children, young people, adults, couples and families across the whole range of life challenges. I have a particular interest and experience in working with anxiety, low mood and depression, work related stress, couples counselling and relationship difficulties, parenting and school related issues.

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.

Supervision

I have extensive experience of supervising clinicians working within the public and private sector as well as in providing clinical training and workshops.  My own training as a Family Systemic Psychotherapist, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and a Mindfulness Based therapist enables me to provide a reflective space for supervisees that integrates both individual and systemic approaches.
