About me and my therapy practice
For over forty years I have been working therapeutically with clients with a wide range of problems. I believe that certain qualities are essential to successful therapy – trust, discretion, motivation, confidentiality and respect.
I believe that the relationship between therapist and client should be at the heart of the therapy process in providing a haven in which clients will be received with professionalism, warmth, kindness and dignity.
As well as a senior accredited counsellor, I am also an accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist and a dual trained nurse in mental health and learning disability. I offer a range of treatments that can help with mental health problems, emotional challenges, and some psychiatric disorders.
I aim to enable those I see to understand their feelings, and what makes them feel positive, anxious, or depressed. This can equip them to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way.
Through the years I have worked with clients internationally and in a wide variety of settings particularly relating to psychological trauma and PTSD. I have a special interest in pregnancy and post-partum difficulties such as anxiety and depression.
I have had numerous articles published through the years and am a contributing author of “Cognitive Behavioural Interventions for Mental Health Practitioners,” and author of a self-help publication “50 Tips to Beat Depression,”
In light of the current Covid 19 pandemic, I am able to offer secure video sessions including Skype, and telephone consultations.
