About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I am also a clinical social worker (HCPC registered). I have 15+ years of therapeutic experience working with a variety of presenting mental health issues.

I offer a compassionate and confidential space where those who need support can feel safe to explore difficulties in their life and relationships in an environment that is non-judgmental and accepting.

I have extensive experience of in person face-to-face and online clinical practice, as well as experience within CAMHS (a mental health team for young people within the NHS). I also have experience of UK social care and offering therapy in private practice to individuals, couples and children.

I ensure my continuing professional development is kept up to date and I keep my theoretical knowledge fresh as part of my role.

At this time I am only able to offer therapy online using a secure platform. Whether we use video or just voice is up to you although in my experience video can be helpful in getting to know one another better.

Practice description

I can offer various forms of therapy such as DBT (dialectical behavioural therapy), CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), Person-Centred Therapy, Integrative Therapy and Humanistic work as well as Sex Therapy. I also offer parenting programmes according to your parenting needs if required.I have worked with a wide variety of people, supporting them through challenging times and helping them to express and understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviour better which can be a transformative experience.I am able to adapt my knowledge of different theoretical approaches to meet my clients’ presenting issues.

My first session

• 15 minute free initial online voice/video consultation

• After our consultation, I will arrange for a first session online either with or without video according to your preference, which will be an opportunity for you to bring up any difficulties or issues you want help with. I will ask some questions to get to know you better, while you can form an idea of how I could help you and what the therapy will be like. We might agree to work together for a brief number of sessions or for a longer period of time per your decision, and these sessions are held for 50 minutes at a regular time every week.
