About me

I was going to say a few things about me, but that's not why you're here. You're here because you recognise it's time to talk about you. I can help with that. I have worked extensively with clients who experience anxiety, depression, professional "burn out", relationship issues, bereavement and loss, trauma. The list goes on. Having juggled work, family, personal loss, training and much more in recent years, I understand overwhelm. This experience means that I will listen without judgement, empathise and help you find ways to cope, moving on from the unhealthy habits and emotions you're stuck in. We'll work collaboratively towards your goals.

I now offer Single Session Therapy. One session could be enough to help you put things into perspective and get you back on track .

To get started, please use any of the contact details on my profile here. I will call you to discuss your needs and to arrange our first session. At the first session we will agree on how to follow up (usually weekly or fortnightly sessions, depending on your preference). I take payment for the first session during the initial call and at the beginning of each subsequent session (card payment or bank transfer only).

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies in London, completing each of their 4 diplomas in CBT/REBT and Integrative Therapies.

I am fully trained and experienced in bereavement support (one to one and group).

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.
