Me (In a Nut Shell)

In addition to training as a Psychotherapist, I am a qualified teacher.  I also spent a number of years working with vulnerable children and families and decided to undertake a counselling course in order for me to better support the people with whom I was working. 

I went on to gain experience as a licensed Time Out for Parents course facilitator and, through this work and my own personal experiences, I became more and more interested in Counselling and Psychotherapy and eventually decided to retrain as a Psychotherapist, gaining my Post Graduate and Advanced Diplomas and working towards my CTA (Certified Transactional Analyst Exam).    I have a passion for supporting people to realise their true worth and full value, and to become the people they were created to become. 

In addition to my Private Practice, I work alongside Foster Families to support them in developing Therapeutic Fostering Skills.

My personal and professional experience has shown me that many things can cause a ‘blip’ in our life journey.  I believe that through working together and building a strong therapeutic relationship we can explore these and find healing and restoration. 

Some of the issues with which I work include, but are not limited to:

  • grief and loss

  • child bereavement

  • ASD

  • OCD

  • trauma

  • addiction

  • general bereavement

  • childhood abuse

  • domestic violence

  • infertility

  • miscarriage

  • anxiety

  • fostering

  • anger

  • depression

  • panic attacks

  • anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders

  • memory impairment

  • borderline personality disorder

  • stress

  • long term illness

 

If you want to find out more, you can contact me to arrange a free initial consultation where we will meet to find out more about each other and talk through your presenting problems in more detail. 

 

If you feel comfortable with me and we both feel we can work together (whether face to face or online) we can talk about arranging further sessions and beginning to build our relationship.  I am also happy to have initial contact via text message if this is more comfortable for you than a phone call - 07789 965 889.

 

I am a trainee member of UKCP and student member of both UKATA and BACP and adhere to their codes of ethical practice.  I am also a Certified Online and Telephone Counsellor.

Why Seek Therapy?

According to UKCP, trained counsellors and psychotherapists - and those in clinical training - can offer an environment in which you can: 

  • express your feelings

  • gain a deeper insight into the issues you face.

Psychotherapy sessions are confidential. This means that you can talk about things you might not feel be able to discuss with anyone else.

The therapist will aim to help you find better ways to cope, or bring about changes in the way you think and behave to improve your mental and emotional well-being.

Sessions can be:

  • one-to-one

  • include a partner or family members

  • in a group.
