About me and my therapy practiceYou deserve not only to heal from the challenges your life has brought you but to truly thrive and live up to your fullest potential. Therapy can help you to do both. I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist who works from a person-centred foundation, using techniques and tools from all the therapeutic approaches I’m trained in as needed to suit your individual situation. I offer a warm and compassionate approach suitable for working with a wide range of challenges and symptoms and I have particular expertise in working with people struggling with the impact of trauma, abuse and/or addiction.
I am committed to meeting you where you are and providing the support you need as an individual, taking into account all aspects of your identity and how they intersect to impact your life experience. This includes a commitment to anti-racism and to providing LGBTQ+ friendly care as well as to making any reasonable adjustments you need to be able to access my services on an equal basis to others. I have a clear enhanced DBS certificate which you can review on request and I have up to date safeguarding and neurodiversity awareness training. I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office as a data controller of confidential information and I am fully insured. As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I work to strict ethical standards and I keep my skills up to date by completing regular continuing professional development.
As well as my private work I volunteer as a therapist with a women’s refuge, working with women who have experienced domestic violence and psychological abuse.
I am a BACP registered therapist trained in person-centred counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), transactional analysis, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and a range of trauma-informed approaches including polyvagal theory and mindfulness based stress reduction.
I have significant experience of working with people who have experienced abuse, domestic violence, assault, childhood abuse and other traumatic experiences, supporting them with a holistic and trauma-informed recovery process. I also have worked with many clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, compulsive behaviour issues including addictions, work-related stress, relationship difficulties and many more emotional and psychological challenges.
