Integrative Counsellor Accredited MBACP, BA (Hons) Counselling/Psychotherapy, PGCert in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

I am a highly qualified experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist and accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I provide both short and long term therapy in a supportive, caring, confidential and safe environment to help explore those difficulties you may be experiencing. For many, taking the first step to getting help is the start of a rewarding journey.

I have extensive experience working with a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, relationship problems, and couple counselling and anger management.

My theoretical approach is Integrative, drawing upon elements of different theories including Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT) which focuses on helping you distinguish unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that may be causing you difficulties and replace them with more alternative helpful thoughts and behaviours, and thus in turn changing the way you feel.

In addition to working in private practice, I currently work as a Lead counsellor at Two G.P. practices, an initial assessor and allocations officer for a local counselling service and work with EAP and Insurance companies. I have previously worked as a counsellor for the NHS, Community Counselling Service and SurvivorsUK which is a specialist trauma agency.

I am very passionate about counselling and the many benefits it can provide.

I am a member with the BACP and adhere to its ethical guidelines and standards, assuring clients of high standards of professional care.

I have full professional indemnity insurance. I work with both individuals and couples.
