About

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.
I offer a safe space to talk about your fears/worries and explore difficult thoughts and feelings. I provide effective talking therapies underpinned by the latest neuroscientific research. I take the view that there is no single approach to therapy and draw on a number of therapeutic methods and tailor these to meet your individual circumstances.
With a strong background of managing mental health services for over 25 years I have extensive experience of a wide range of issues. I have worked as a manager within IAPT (NHS) counselling services. I’m registered and accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I'm also a trained EMDR therapist.
