About me and my therapy practice
I understand it can sometimes be difficult to enter therapy – you have made the first move by looking for a counsellor. I can offer you a safe, non-judgemental , and supportive space where you can explore any of the personal and emotional difficulties that are affecting you.
I am a qualified counsellor with over 20 years NHS experience. I’m a registered member of the British Association of counselling and psychotherapy (BACP) , and also a mentor for final year counselling students for the past 11 years, within an NHS setting. I currently still work for the NHS, providing training for staff around mental health issues, in addition to my private practice.
I trained integratively which means I am able to use different forms of counselling according to the clients needs, this includes using cognitive behavioural therapy , psychodynamic and person centred therapy when required..I specialise in relationship issues and anxiety management ,in all its forms, including trauma ,self-harm and OCD disorders,but see clients that come to me with a very varied range of issues. I also see teenagers for counselling and have completed specialist training on this .
I am also a qualified nurse(RN) in addition to being a qualified therapist – this has enabled me to learn and utilise biofeedback techniques with my anxious and stressed clients when required:this is a clinically effective and evidence based treatment ,which can produce amazing results. I always feel very humbled and privileged when people choose me as their counselling therapist.
