About me

I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor, offering short and long term counselling, and an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Accredited Practitioner.

I have specialist expertise in the treatment of trauma.   EMDR is the recommended therapy in the NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) Guidelines for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I cover a full range of problems including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, relationship problems, adjustment to illness/injury, self-esteem, stress, physical/sexual/emotional abuse, disturbing memories. My particular interest is Attachment Informed EMDR for complex PTSD arising from adverse childhood events.

My main counselling models are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Transactional Analysis and EMDR. I also use aspects of Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness.

I offer clinical supervision to practising and trainee counsellors

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.


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.

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.
