About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP Accredited therapist (adults) also UKCP trained as a Psychotherapeutic Counseller of Children and Adolescents. I have worked in NHS IAPT, Third Sector agencies such as Cruse Bereavement, BARCA and Primary and Secondary schools as a parent and child therapist. I am BUPA registered.

It is important to me that people feel accepted and safe with me at what is most likely a vulnerable time and I work at my client's pace to build a trusting, confidential relationship. I also encourage self-care in the people I see.

I am a Relational Practitioner and look at how past relationships may be impacting on present relationships to help the people I see gain greater clarity about their current situations. I use elements of more cognitive models to challenge patterns of negative thinking and the Rewind Technique to help people to deal with trauma. I am interested in sand tray work which can be a useful intervention to help those that overthink to access their emotions. I work collaboratively with my clients to tailor the work to their needs. With younger clients I use Play Therapy techniques depending on age.

You may be at a crossroads in your life, have experienced a life event such as bereavement, redundancy, retirement or be in need of a space to share what you are going through. Maybe you have felt unhappy all of your life and don't know why? These things can be explored safely in therapy to help you understand yourself and your situation better and to get what you want from life.

You can contact me by email or mobile phone. I offer a 30 minute phone call free of charge to discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have. My days of work are Thursdays 12-7 and Fridays 9-5. I see people weekly.

I am currently offering remote sessions by telephone or Zoom. This will be reviewed mid April.

The first session is for us to meet, see if we feel we can work together, explore whether I can offer what you are looking for and to see what counselling might be like for those who are new to phsychotherapies.
