About me

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council, and I am also an experienced practice supervisor, listed on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors held by the British Psychological Society.

I have many years experience of working in a number of settings within the NHS, in a university counselling service and in private practice where I offer a confidential counselling service for a number of difficulties.

I am experinced at working with a number of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and bereavement, and am also experienced at working with people who are coping with and adjusting to physical health difficulties. I have a very good understanding of how difficult it can be to ask for help, and of the effect that any kinds of difficulties can have on the whole family.

Approaches used include Systemic (solution focused) therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic therapy. Sessions are offered to meet the specific needs of clients, with flexible use of time between sessions. Emphasis is placed on enhancing individual strengths and resources and developing coping abilities so that difficulties can be overcome

Counselling is provided under the ethics guidelines of the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
