About me

Counsellor/Psychotherapist MBACP Registered

I work with individuals and couples who present with: Narcissistic Personality, Narcissistic Wounds, Borderline Personality, Shame, Trauma, PTSD,  Anxiety, Infidelity, Relationship Issues, Separation/Divorce, Addiction, Depression, Stress, Loss, Anger, Sexual & Domestic Abuse, Identity Issues,  Social Anxiety, Attachment Styles, Low Self-Esteem, Age, Panic Attacks, Phobias and OCD.

I help clients identify and challenge self-limiting beliefs, develop coping strategies, and foster a more positive self-image.

Therapy enables us to have a deeper understanding of our unconscious motivations. Therapy enables us to reflect on emotions before we react and helps us become more aware of our repetitive behaviours  and relationship patterns.

Therapy can help you regain your self-assurance, enhance your self-esteem, and reclaim your ability to thrive and achieve your goals.
 My biggest reward is being able to see my clients transition through their difficulties by working collaboratively in achieving their goals in a caring, safe, and non-judgemental space.

I offer 30 minutes free consultation.

CBT- Cognitive behavioural therapy - can help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down. In CBT, problems are broken down into 5 main areas: situations ; thoughts ; emotions ; physical feelings ; actions ; CBT is based on the concept of these 5 areas being interconnected and affecting each other.

Psychodynamic- The Psychodynamic approach includes all the theories in psychology that see human functioning based upon the interaction of drives and forces within the person, particularly unconscious. The Psychodynamic approach is one of the older forms of talk therapy, moving things a step forward from Freud and psychoanalysis. It shares with psychoanalysis a belief that in order to understand the ways we think and act in the present, we need to explore both our unconscious and our past experiences and relationships.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
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.
