About me and my therapy practice
We all struggle from time to time. Often, turning to friends or family can be all we need – however, there may be issues or difficulties in which it is not suitable, effective, or possible to speak to them about – and this is where my role comes in.
If you’re looking for positive, realistic and meaningful results around your area of difficulty, I could be the right choice for you.
I work using a blend of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and traditional Counselling, which I find helps clients move forward by finding practical solutions, in a caring and understanding environment.
Alternatively, you may feel that you just want to talk – to offload how difficult things are. And in this regard, I can offer a true listening ear, seeing things from your perspective to leave you feeling understood. All our emotions are valid and deserve to be given the time and space. I will not judge you or the topics you share. However, I will gently encourage you to speak openly and freely – not only to give voice to that which is unsaid, but also to explore alternatives if appropriate.
I work online over Skype. Therefore you will need a functioning device, secure internet connection, and a confidential private space in order to access sessions. I am also able to offer telephone appointments.
Having completed my Counselling Diploma (TC-L4) in 2013, I have worked in a few different settings. Primarily at a University with students, using Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT) for 3 years. Also, in a residential treatment facility for clients in recovery for substance addiction.
Following a few years’ break, I have more recently returned to study Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), where I gained the CBT-L5 qualification. Since then, I have been working online in private practice using a blend of CBT and traditional counselling (Humanistic Integrative Theory).
I regularly update my skills and understanding with Continuing Professional Development (CPD), having recently gained a Foundation Degree in Counselling from the Open University.
Over the years I have supported clients from a range of backgrounds and various ages to work on presenting issues which include: abortion, anger, anxiety, bereavement, Body Dysmorphia (BDD), bulimia, career direction, child custody, divorce, emotional sensitivity and dysregulation, guilt, family conflict, gender identity, hopelessness, jealousy, loneliness, low self-confidence, low mood, low self-esteem, Neurodivergence (ASD/Asperger's Syndrome/ADHD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), over-eating, parenting difficulties, relationship difficulties, sadness, sexual assault, shame, substance addiction, academic and workplace stress, and unhealthy eating habits.
I am fully insured and supervised, comply with UK-GDPR, and work to the BACP ethical framework – of which I am a registered member.
