About me and my therapy practice
Hi there. I am an experienced BACP registered counsellor/psychotherapist. I offer confidential face to face and telephone therapy to individuals, couples and groups. I have over 20 years experience and I'm fully qualified, DBS checked and insured.
I work in a way that puts you and your needs at the centre of our sessions; working together in this way will help you to develop self-awareness and resilience as well as making the changes you are looking for. Moving forward, you will have the opportunity to learn skills and tools to help you cope better and manage life challenges with increasing confidence.
Because it is the person that I work with and not a symptom or an issue, I am happy for you to contact me for any reason at all. Sometimes it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what is causing us to feel either dissatisfied with life, emotional pain, lost, anxious or depressed. I can help you to understand what perhaps is unclear at the moment.
I have a trauma informed practice and a special interest in how trauma affects not only the mind but the body too. Much of my work with clients is around anxiety and depression, relationship issues and work-related issues but I have training in many different areas too:
Depression, anxiety, social anxiety, childhood abuse/neglect/trauma, post traumatic stress/PTSD, complex trauma, relationship issues, stress, including work-related issues, loss of direction/purpose, problems with alcohol or drugs, issues with weight & overeating, mindfulness and more...
I offer both short and long term therapy and sometimes small group therapy.
My face to face and telephone sessions can be either full length or half length which can be discussed during our initial contact.
I have recognition with a number of medical insurance companies, including Bupa & Vitality.
I also have training in and offer critical incident debriefing/therapy to organisations. I can also offer ongoing group therapy & wellbeing sessions to organisations.
