About me

I am a BACP accredited Counsellor,  with 11 years experience working with clients with relationship issues, including affairs, life-stages, communication issues, bereavement, anxiety ( General Anxiety Disorder) ,depression and low self esteem.

I am also experienced in  working with clients with  Eating disorders, and I am used to working as part of a multidisciplinary team if needed.

I am a qualified EMDR therapist. EMDR is primarily used to overcome symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress, but it may be equally effective when used for managing anxiety, depression, phobias and pain.

I work at your pace  and use different theoretical models to help you achieve your goals. That may included psychodynamic, exploring the past to understand how it influences the present.

Systemic theory to look at belief systems and patterns within current and past family interactions, to help understand and possibly change behaviours.

CBT and Solution focussed therapy or EMDR, which enable you to change the way you think, which in turn, can change the way you feel. This is very helpful for clients experiencing anxiety and depression.
