About me and my therapy practice

In these challenging times, I am changing the way I work with you and am offering video or telephone sessions. 

I aim to help you to build a sense of emotional resilience and emotional regulation. So, when you feel overwhelmed, you will have skills and knowledge to help you to think, behave and respond in ways that are more grounded.

I use my training and skills from over 13 years of experience, to support you to understand your difficulties and to make changes to live a more fulfilling life.

My aim is to help you to resolve a wide range of problems, including trauma, depression, anxiety disorders, stress, low self-esteem, low confidence, loss of purpose, work-based stress, bullying, health problems, disordered eating, relationship difficulties, bereavement, childhood abuse, sexual abuse, social anxiety, health anxiety, death anxiety, panic, and excessive worrying.

Practice description

I qualified in 2007 with a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire. I work integratively, using pyschodynamic, compassion-focused therapy and person-centred theories to inform my understanding of your difficulties. This means, I often look back at your past to key relationships, attachment figures and core self-beliefs as we are often reacting in the present, from things that have affected us in the past.

I am very interested in helping people overcome the symptoms of trauma as these can be overwhelming. I completed training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 2019 and have a lot of experience working with trauma. I use EMDR regularly as a treatment for trauma.

I also use Mindfulness and completed a Mindfulness for Stress Reduction course in 2013.

I was awarded a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in 2005.

I have a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology (2002) and provide psycho-education to help you to understand your symptoms and then build strategies to help you manage them.

I work with compassion and understanding. I help you to build a sense of emotional resilience.

I also provide counselling for Employment Assistance Programmes and, for BUPA,  WPA, COMPSYCH, Aviva and AXA.

My first session

In the first session I will help you to feel settled and at ease. I will give you information about confidentiality and how I manage any risky thoughts or behaviours.

We can talk about what brought you to therapy and, talk about what you would like to gain from counselling. I can also let you know how EMDR can be integrated into the therapy. You can ask lots of questions.

I can also offer some strategies to manage any symptoms or emotional overwhelm.

The session is 50 minutes and there will be time to get an idea of whether you feel you can work with me on a regular basis.  

Types of therapy

Brief therapy, CBT, EMDR, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, EAP, Older adults, Organisations, Trainee, Young people
