About me

I am a compassionate, friendly therapist, offering professional, evidence-based therapy, with over 20 years experience in the field of mental health. As a fully accredited psychotherapist, I provide Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Compassion Focussed therapy (CFT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

I am experienced in working with a whole range of problems and conditions, from phobia's to trauma, to OCD and depression, to name but a few. Whether you are feeling down, anxious or stressed, I can recommend a therapy that is proven to be effective. Many of the treatments I offer are supported by NICE guidelines:

I am fully accredited with the BABCP and a member of EMDR UK & Ireland. In addition, with my background in nursing, I also maintain my registration with the NMC. This ensures that I maintain the highest standards of practice, ethics and training, so that you can be confident of receiving the best quality service.
