About me and my therapy practice

I'm a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Accredited Counsellor.

I'm currently providing remote therapy only - so you can have sessions with me from the comfort of your own home via Zoom, Skype, or phone.

I know that embarking on a course of online counselling might seem a daunting prospect, but I will do my best to ensure we create a space where you are accepted non-judgmentally, where you can grow and learn about yourself. Somewhere you'll feel safe to talk about anything at all in complete confidence.

I know from experience that therapy can work just as well remotely as face to face - it's perhaps a different way of working from our usual view of therapy, but I believe it's no less effective.

I have plenty of experience in providing online therapy - having been a telephone counsellor working with an EAP (Employee Assistance Programme), and working as an approved counsellor for Anxiety UK - providing online therapy via Skype.

I have experience in:

Private practice, helping clients with many issues including anxiety, stress, depression, loss, life stages, and change management.

NHS and charity organisations.

Volunteering with the Samaritans and CRUSE.

Working for an EAP providing counselling for clients from blue light organisations, government organisations, and the NHS.

Both long-term and short-term therapy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from a BACP Accredited course, and a Diploma in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I also have a BA (Hons) degree and an MSc.

If you'd like to book an appointment, contact me and we can find a mutually convenient time.
