About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified Reg MBACP (Accredited) Person Centred therapist with over 16 years experience, I work using an integrative counselling approach.

For the past 12 years I have worked in a Senior role within the NHS offering evidenced based therapy approved by NICE to those experiencing depression or anxiety, and other significant life changing problems.

I have extensive experience working with clients who have experienced sexual, emotional and physical abuse. Other aspects of my work include working with bereavement, adjustment, trauma, work related stress, loss, illness/disability, sexual identity, self-esteem, and sexual problems. 

Within my current practice I provide Clinical Supervision to both qualified and trainee counsellors.

As a fully qualified relationship therapist (relate trained) I also offer Couples therapy. Couples therapy aims to help you achieve: Better communication and an ability to work together. Greater awareness of each others needs. Understanding of difference between you. It will help you  break/change unhelpful patterns in your relationship. A better sense of closeness. help with feelings of anxiety and stress in facing the challenges of your relationship, and family life. Help with coming to terms with life changes such as the arrival of children, bereavement or separation. A more stable family life. An improved sexual relationship if this is needed.
