About me

I’m an online counsellor and psychotherapist. Are you are anxious and overwhelmed and struggling with the pandemic and finding it hard to cope? Are you feeling that old issues and feelings are cropping up for you? I can help with that. In an initial online session we can discuss your problems and find out what will be most helpful for you.

Sometimes it’s to do with past overwhelming experiences in your life ( e.g. bereavement, sexual assault, bullying, medical or health experiences, childhood abuse or neglect, transport accidents). These may be intruding now in a way that feels unmanageable. If so, then a trauma-focused EMDR will be vital to your recovery.

I'm a fully qualified EMDR Practitioner, an MBACP Accredited psychodynamic psychotherapist & supervisor. EMDR is an evidence-based technique to process old traumatic experiences that keep impacting on the present. I have worked in the field for 20 years and have the experience and knowledge to help you through this difficult time.

My role is to help you resolve and move on from your difficulties and live more in the present without being triggered into old feelings. Social distancing and self isolation is hard for us all, but if you feel trapped and desperate there may well be some old experiences that are intruding. With EMDR the intensity of these feelings can be removed. Do contact me.

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
