About me and my therapy practice

I am a registered member of BACP and a member of the British Psychological Society.  My qualifications include the Diploma in Counselling and a Psychology-based Honours Degree.  I am also a qualified Life Coach.  Prior to starting my private practice I spent many years as a volunteer Cruse counsellor and have extensive experience in bereavement issues and coping strategies and have used these skills to help a wide variety of clients of all ages, including children.  In addition I have wide experience in the area of stress management, anxiety, self-esteem and depression.  I use a comprehensive range of counselling approaches in my work and select the most appropriate for each individual client.

I have various books which can be lent to clients if appropriate and assorted materials available for work with children.
