Has life thrown you a curveball or a series of them and restoring that balance has become increasingly difficult? Are you struggling with anxiety or depression or both? Are you finding it more and more difficult to quieten the mind? Do you feel life and your emotions are becoming unmanageable, feeling unable to cope?
Looking for a professional, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential service. An Integrative therapist who also brings life experience with qualification. My therapeutic approach is Integrative, Person-Centred qualified, including CBT and Transactional Analysis. I feel drawing from different theories allows me to tailor the therapy specific to your needs. Recognising your individuality and uniqueness.
As a therapist working for the NHS Primary Care Mental Health Service, I support GP referrals presenting with a wide range of issues affecting Mental Health. These include bereavement, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations, PTSD, victims of abuse (sexual, emotional, physical). Childhood trauma, neglect. Relationship breakdown/Divorce. Low self-esteem and low self-worth.
Experience of working at Delamere Rehab as an addiction therapist. The first purpose-built addiction treatment centre in the country I have a wide range of experience and integrative skills around alcohol and drug addiction, along with secondary addictions including gambling, food and exercise. Exploring the emotions of guilt and shame, trauma, anger, grief and addictive behaviours presented.
I work in a professional client-centred manner creating a therapeutic environment where you can feel heard, respected, understood and accepted. A safe and non-judgemental space allowing you to explore and process areas of difficulty.
It takes courage to openly talk about experiences and trauma. The fact you are reading this is such an important step. I will support you on your journey of exploration, helping you to reflect and process in a safe, confidential environment. Allowing you to make your own decisions based on what is going to work for you.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Mon - Fri 9am - 6pm
Evening and weekend sessions can be considered.
Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, I am predominantly providing online Zoom therapy or telephone therapy. I have provided ecotherapy where we walk and talk. Upon request, this is an option. Once Government guidelines allow I will resume face to face sessions.
