About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist.  That means I have training and experience in different kinds of therapy and theories to help individuals work through their difficulties.  I am qualified and experienced in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred Therapy and Attachment Theory.   I am also a Qualified Mental Heath Nurse, with nearly 20 years experience in the NHS.  I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Life can be really difficult and challenging and for many of us, things that happen throughout can cause pressure to build and patterns to form. Sometimes, this may be due to our experiences growing up and developing in our world and sometimes it's the things that happen to us as adults. Sometimes we might not have a clue why, or where the issues started! Counselling and therapy is an opportunity to explore all of this with somebody qualified and experienced, but most of all human!
