About me

Please note I am currently only working via zoom or phone.

Life can throw difficult and painful experiences at us that can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, sad or depressed. Sometimes our past relationships can repeat in our present ones. And sometimes our early experiences keep us surviving rather than living. But we don’t have to struggle alone because there is help and hope for all of us.

I know how difficult it can be to take that first step. The most important thing when finding a therapist is that you feel "comfortable enough" to share what you are experiencing. It is not easy, but in a calm, safe, and confidential space I hope you will experience the support and healing that you seek; whether or not that is with me.

I am an experienced psychotherapist whose approach is a holistic and integrated one, centred on understanding our experiences through both body and mind. Throughout our lifetime we learn to modify ourselves to fit in with the demands of others. We can lose touch with how we feel and what is important to us. Re-engaging with our felt sense can bring us back to what is true for us here and now.

I work with individuals, offering both short-term counselling and longer term therapy, depending on what you are looking for from our work together.

Please look at my website to get more information about me and my practice.

What to do next
If you would like to enquire further please send me an email or give me a call.  I do prefer to talk to you directly before arranging a first appointment as this can give you a sense of me before we meet.  If I am not available please leave me a voicemail I will return your call by the next working day.  If you have a preferred time e.g. after 6pm please let me know.

Our first appointment will give you the chance to meet me and to see if what I have to offer is right for you, and for me to understand what you want to get out of therapy.  Above all, it is important that you choose someone you feel comfortable enough with.  If you decide working with me fits for you, then appointments are usually weekly at a regular time.

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.
