About me and my therapy practice

I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 and I'm currently a registered member of the BACP.

Since qualifying, I've worked consistently across various areas of counselling so I have a lot of experience of working with all different kinds of issues like relationship breakdown, family problems, bereavement, abuse, domestic violence, stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, work related issues, change management, loss, trauma, sexuality and addictions to name a few.

I'm an integrative counsellor which, in normal speak, just means that I combine different types of therapy to suit the varying needs of the different people that I work with, all of which I am trained in.

Overall I'm very client centred (I work with the issues you want to focus on) whilst remaining solution focussed and I'm generally just a very warm, non-judgemental and confident person.

My priority across the board, is to provide my clients with a confidential and effective environment in which they feel safe, comfortable and able to work through whatever it is that's causing problems in their life.

I provide long-term, short-term, and time limited therapy, this can be either via telephone or video calls.

Alongside my ongoing private work, I'm also one of the co-founders of a gambling counselling and consultancy company. We formed the business in 2018 from a combined 30 years of experience working within this capacity, the website listed on my profile here is in relation to this.

Our company provides specialist problematic gambling in the workplace consultancy, training opportunities and counselling packages for companies or organisations and their employees. We also offer counselling for private clients who are either struggling to control their gambling or are affected by another persons gambling addiction.
