About me

Are you struggling and looking for an experienced therapist who will listen to you in a comfortable and safe space, and help guide you through a difficult time?

If so, I can help.

MBACP registered and a fully qualified counsellor, I’ve been a therapist for over 9 years. In that time, I've helped clients work through numerous concerns, from addiction, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to attachment issues and relationships problems.

Background

After going through my own personal struggles, I initially embarked on a personal development course and from there went on to do my degree in integrative counselling and psychotherapy. During my training I was drawn towards the theory of childhood attachment. Our early experiences form characteristic ways of relating to other people and of coping with the ebb and flow of emotions which are not only psychological predictions but also physiological patterns. They are the bones of emotional life, hidden outside our awareness - the invisible history of everyone.

Having worked through my own difficulties in training I can truly understand and empathise with others.

Experience

I have spent a considerable amount of time working with offenders who have drug and alcohol related problems, both in the community and in a prison setting. Treatment around addiction is not just about tackling the addiction, but rather looking at the dependency, exploring the root of the problem considering childhood events and memories; I have a psychodynamic method, looking at how early experiences have helped shape present day behaviours.

Therapy

We are all unique individuals and my approach focuses on carefully tailored integrative therapy in a safe, relaxed environment, promoting a healthy alliance between mind and body to clear a path which helps you move forward with more clarity and confidence.

In addition, if you are looking to develop skills like mindfulness and be better at managing your emotions, DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy)* could be a good option for you.

Confidentiality and Trust

Confidentiality and trust are the foundation of the client/counsellor relationship. I offer a relaxed, comfortable, non-judgemental environment where you are free to explore and talk about painful, difficult issues in the safety of our space.

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.

Further information

*If you are looking to build skills like mindfulness and be better at managing your emotions, DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) could be a good option for you. Especially, if you are overwhelmed and feeling that factors outside of your control are negatively impacting your quality of life, health, or relationships.

We are getting asked about DBT more and more. It’s hard to access DBT on the NHS and often there is a long waiting list, so I’m pleased to be able to provide this much-needed service.

Research shows that DBT has been used successfully to treat people experiencing depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse.

It’s not a quick fix but it can help change behaviour in the long term. Clients who have DBT skills training will be supplied with a DBT workbook that we will work through together at a pace that is comfortable for them.

What’s the difference between CBT and DBT?

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a specific form of cognitive-behavioural therapy. Whilst similar there are some important differences. DBT seeks to build upon the foundation of CBT, to help enhance its effectiveness and address specific concerns that the founder of DBT, psychologist Marsha Linehan, saw as deficits in CBT.

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.
