Counsellor and Psychotherapist, Systemic Practitioner
Individuals and Couples
I am a fully accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I trained as an integrative counsellor at MSc level, qualifying in 2005. Since then I have completed further extended trainings in Cognitive Therapy and Systemic (couples/family) Therapy. I attend numerous shorter trainings to continue developing as a practitioner.
I have 13 years of experience and have worked with many presenting issues in settings such as; private psychiatric hospitals, education, the NHS and the charity sector. I currently work in private practice with individuals and couples. My main interests are relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety. Alongside private practice, I also work for a charity providing specialist psychotherapy to individuals and couples affected by brain injury.
For me, the most important part of therapy is to experience a supportive and confidential space to explore and express oneself without judgement. This provides the foundation for working together to gain understanding and insight into problems and think about ways forward. I prefer to work integratively because it allows me to find an approach which will suit each person I work with. The theories I draw from help us to think together about your life experiences, and make connections to current struggles or unhelpful patterns of behaviour. I also provide psycho education and Cognitive Behavioural strategies to help people feel empowered.
