About me

My approach to therapy is to create a place for you to feel safe and a space for you to develop trust to share your life experiences ranging from daily life stresses to deep rooted issues. Through our therapeutic relationship, we can then discover together how to work on your concerns and apply tools to deal with your issues, so that growth and healing can occur.

I will support you to make sense of what is happening in your life and to reconnect to yourself, reduce anxiety and improve your self confidence. Further, when working with couples we will work together as a team to improve communication skill and experience renewed connectivity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I offer therapy in many areas and I specialise in treating depression , anxiety and addiction as well as working with couples

I’ve a Post Grad in Addiction Counselling and Psychology and a degree in Social Science specialising in Psychology. I also have a Diploma  in Couples work . I’ve worked as a Psychotherapist for over ten years ,in a range of different settings from addiction treatment centres to bespoke services.

I combine multidisciplinary approaches using systemic therapy as a wider lens to view the issues and CBT to apply practical solutions to find new ways for you to improve and enrich your life and live it more fully.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

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.
