I have a particular interest and knowledge in working with adults and their recovery from addictions and obsessive behaviour, e.g., co-dependency, love addiction, work addiction, drugs and alcohol. I also have worked extensively with body image, anxiety and anger.
Sometimes we struggle with a situation or relationship and can feel stuck in patterns that no longer work for us. You may be feeling frustrated, sad or scared but can't identify the cause. Whatever you bring, I provide a safe and confidential environment and work with sensitivity and insight.
Therapy with me can help support you to explore your behaviour, feelings and attitudes and gives you the opportunity to make changes that can feel authentic and lasting.
I came to this work through my own experience of therapy and have learnt that the best thing we can do is take responsibility for our own pain and self-care. This gives us the opportunity for growth and renewal.
What to expect: Please contact me by email leaving your name and telephone number and I will give you a call to answer any questions and set up a first appointment.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
