About me

Do you find it difficult to let others know how you feel? Are you suffering in silence too embarrassed or afraid to let anyone know what is really going on in your life? I can help.

I am a registered therapist in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Counselling. If you are experiencing anxiety, difficulty in relationships or just need to be heard and understood then I can help. I am experienced in working with a range of different clients and from diverse cultures or backgrounds.

How can counselling help?

If you are suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, depression or having problems with your relationships, counselling can help. I can help you understand your feelings, your thoughts and physical symptoms and we will work together to help you feel better. I offer weekly sessions where you will be treated with respect and empathy. I offer either time limited sessions or longer term help depending on what you need.

I will always respect the client's objectives and goals and choose an approach that is most appropriate.

What to expect in your first session?

Your first session will be an opportunity for you to let me know what you want to achieve from counselling. We will also get to know each other so that you can feel confident that we can work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained in both Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I also have a degree in Psychology and I am registered both with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and British Association of Psychotherapists and Counsellors (BACP).

I have experiencing in working with a wide range of clients, including students, survivors of domestic violence, depression, panic attacks, PTSD and rape victims. I am also experienced in conflict resolution and working with older people facing the end of life.

As a member of BACP and British Psychological Society I abide by the code of ethics of these regulatory bodies.

Member organisations

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.
