About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with one of the UKs leading professional bodies, the British Association of Counsellors and the Psychotherapists (BACP). I am also an accredited EMDR Practitioner with EMDR UK & Ireland. I am a mental health coordinator for a national homeless charity where I have gathered experience in coaching and supervising trainees and experienced counsellors. Throughout my role as a MH Coordinator I have received training in managing/coaching volunteers to provide me with a framework on how to best support my supervisees. I have also mentored and supported counsellors through the BACP accreditation process.

My work predominately focuses on complex needs clients who have received a diagnosis of PTSD, Complex/developmental PTSD, personality disorders and addictions. The foundation of my work is in humanistic counselling (Person Centred and Gestalt), I have learned to work in a creative and adaptable way using a range of psychological models, keeping in mind the principle that everyone is individual and unique. I don’t believe in 'working in a one approach suits all way', I will collaborate with you in finding a way that works best for you. I draw on a variety of additional therapeutic frameworks such as, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT) and Trauma informed therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).
