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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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.
