Coming to therapy can be a relief, although it can also feel like a step into the unknown and be frightening. I am a warm, empathic and experienced therapist, firstly my priority is to support you to feel more at ease.
I have experience which includes working in GP surgeries, charities, private mental health hospital (general psychiatry) environment offering individual and groupwork, along with employee assisted programme experience.
I offer to facilitate your change and development through the collaborative identification of repeated patterns of behaviours, thinking and emotional responses. In doing so, gently exploring past experiences and how events in your life shape some unhelpful ways of coping in the present. CBT is a well researched therapy approach, which has shown high success rates in a variety of problems. CBT is used widely within the NHS and is a short or longer term, collaborative, empathic and goal orientated approach.

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.
