About me and my therapy practice

Ex military, now multi skilled therapist. The military provided me with valuable insights and experineces. It offered vast exposure to witnessing various traumas and mental health impacts. As such, highlighted the importance of mental health suport and the benefit of it to others. Having a multitude of skills means I can ofer you a wide range of therapeutic options. 

Having supported others for years through issues such as suicide, abuse, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, relational conflict and the impacts of bereavement I wanted to continue similar support throughy therapy.

I am very passionate about supporting others, not just through trauma and it's impacts, but other issues too such as addiction, and relationship problems or aftermath of a unhealthy relationship.  

I can help you, safely explore whatever you choose, at your pace comfortable for you, discussing issues and experiences you wish to to and feel safe to share.

I am qualified and well practiced in the following modalities:-

EMDR (Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) Level 1 & 2 Adults

EMDR Level 1 & 2 Advanced Child & Adolescent

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) 

Clinical Hypnotherapy. 

Rewind Therapy 

Child and Adult Trauma focused therapy

Person Centered Counselling (PCT)

Integrative counselling

I have my own private practice and I am employed as an Assessment Officer & Counsellor offering support to adults, young people and children who have been affected by sexual violence. I also work with children in care homes. 

I have also counselled in prisons, working with some very complex clients who suffer from PTSD, trauma, mental health issues, bereavement, disassociation and relationship problems. 

Practice description

Through guidance and support, in a safe space free from judgement or external influences, you will be able to explore whatever you choose, at a pace comfortable for you, around issues and experiences you wish to share.  

Life can be tough, filled with challenges which have helped to build your character, but it may also be such experiences which have led you to seek counselling support.   

Your life experiences, cultural background and upbringing are some of the reasons that make you unique! Therefore, anything you wish to work through in therapy will be tailored specifically to your individual needs.

There is a vast range of issues which clients bring to therapy such as: -

General anxiety, social anxiety, depression, PTSD, emotional, physical or sexual abuse and OCD to name but a few. Maybe you are currently feeling stuck, unable to share things that have happened, with people close to you.

Perhaps you are very self-critical, lack confidence and have low self-esteem, affecting your happiness and relationships. You may be struggling to move on with your life following the loss of a loved one, job, pet or home. 

No matter what the problem is, counselling can help you to explore and understand events and relationships past and present. It will enable you to process anything which is preventing you from being happy, enabling you to come to terms with, accept or move forward with your life. 

My first session

During the first session we will carry out an in depth assessment. This will identify problems that are causing you pain, issues and unhappiness, areas which I can support you through to feel in a better place. 

We will then discuss the options of therapy such as; talking, CBT, EMDR or a combination and adapt therapy to suit your needs. 

I believe in helping you to get the most out of every session.
