About me and my therapy practice

I am a Person-Centred Accredited Counsellor, CBT Practitioner and EMDR Therapist working in private practice since 2012. Initially I started working in a hospice providing therapy to patients, families, carers and the bereaved. I also facilitated drop-in services and bereavement courses, and this helped me to see how unique people are. My goal was and still is to gain skills and training in other therapies which has enabled me to offer a service that is tailored to your needs, personality, and individual circumstances.

In addition, I am a Person-Centred accredited counsellor working for Occupational Health Companies offering counselling, EMDR and CBT for EAPs and Manager referrals. In addition, I facilitate groups for reflective practice, workshops and presentations and provide onsite CISD at day and half day rates.

I provide therapy for – 1-2-1, couples.

Practice description

I work with individuals, couples’, and groups, incorporating the person-centred ethos, using your expertise of you to inform our work together. Building on this foundation, I use EMDR Therapy to treat PTSD from recent or past traumas and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to change negative mindsets to more positive ones and through psychoeducation; learn new skills and coping strategies. I draw on aspects of Mindfulness to help people learn to calm themselves in any environment and other grounding methods which can be used as distraction and to prevent overthinking. I use guided imagery skills to reduce aspects of pain and trauma for individuals who, for example, are working through cancer treatment, been involved in a car accident or have been in previous abusive relationships. I use features of assertiveness coaching and SMART goals to build/rebuild confidence and empower people to take back control of their lives.

When I work with couples, as well as the therapeutic approaches outlined above, I incorporate Transactional Analysis (TA), which is based on the idea that a person’s behaviour and social relationships reflect an interchange between parental (critical and nurturing), adult (rational), and childlike (intuitive and dependent) aspects of their personality.
