About me and my therapy practice

I have previously worked in the NHS setting for 15 years in acute Mental Health and subsequently in my own private practice since 2011.

I therefore have a good understanding of working with people with anxiety, depression, self harming behaviours, eating disorders and trauma to name a few.

I gained my accreditation with BACP as a Psychodynamic therapist, however my experience working in the NHS, alongside subsequent training over the years has shaped me to be able to work with a variety of approaches. 

These include CBT(Cognitive approach) and the use of creative mediums.

I therefore not only offer a space to journey together to bring about clarity and change, but I also offer some very practical tools and strategies. 

I offer individual sessions to adults, young people and children.

I offer face to face counselling as well as online sessions and telephone sessions . 

I also work as a supervisor for counsellors working with Adults and children.
