About me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist and supervisor. I have over 15yrs experience working with individuals, couples, and families both in the NHS and privately. I also provide clinical supervision to psychotherapists, counsellors and trainees.

I help people to explore the issues that bring them to therapy. It is through this process that change can be effected. The process can be short-term and target-focused, or longer-term and more exploratory. I tailor my approach to the individual.

There are no limits to what can be discussed in therapy. What is important is that the therapy offers an individual the possibility of looking at aspects of themselves and their lives that have hitherto been difficult to look at. In therapy the process of self-examination and change is made possible by the therapeutic relationship: the all-important relationship that develops between a therapist and a client.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc is Systemic Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Supervision. I am qualified to practice EMDR, and am a registered member of UKCP and BACP.

I specialize in conditions such as PTSD and Dissociative Disorders. This work generally deals with past traumatic experiences. However, I also work with clients experiencing a wide range of other difficulties, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work-related problems, sexual identity difficulties, and low self-esteem.

As a systemic psychotherapist I work with couples and families, as well as with individuals. In addition to extensive experience working with adults, I have worked in the NHS as part of CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) and in an adolescent in-patient psychiatric service. I now have a private practice and work with any issues that an individual or family is troubled by.

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.
