About Me

****To help as many people as possible during this pandemic I am offering a reduction on my fee for a reduced period.******

I know how difficult it must be searching through the profiles trying to find the right therapist/coach. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a brave one and sometimes it can be difficult. I have been told by clients that I am calm, warm, welcoming and approachable. I have also been told that I am able to put them at ease.

I offer a safe non judgemental space to work through your difficulties and offer strategies and tools to quickly reduce your symptoms and help you feel more in control. I specialise in anger, anxiety, depression, obsessive and compulsive behaviours, stress and trauma. Many of my clients self-report to feeling much better after 6-8 sessions.

As a psychotherapist,  I help you explore and understand patterns in your thinking and in relationships with others and with yourself  that may be causing you pain or making you feel stuck. I help you find your own solutions instead of giving you advice. I believe if you are given a safe space to be heard you will find your own healing.

As there is a strong connection between diet and mental health I am now a qualified Nutrition Health Coach so can help you choose foods that support your mental health. I offer help with disordered using eating psychology so you can understand why you do what you do and learn effective strategies to overcome problem eating.

My Experience

I  qualified over 16 years ago as a psychotherapist and until recently worked for the NHS. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). The government regulator for my profession. I have had the honour and privilege to come alongside and help people of all ages from all walks of life. I have also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and combine mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help you reduce and manage stress.

I spent over 7 years specialising in working with adults, particularly women who have suffered abuse and trauma. I have also worked with men struggling with anger and depression and have extensive experience working for CAMHS with children and adolescents.

My Approach

I offer a safe non judgemental space to work through your difficulties and offer strategies to quickly reduce your symptoms and distress. I specialise in anxiety, depression and trauma and many clients self-report to feeling much better after 6-8 sessions. I have an integrative approach that combines creative approaches with CBT and mindfulness/mindfulness meditation.

During our first session I carry out an informal assessment so I can find out more about you and your difficulties so that I can tailor the therapy treatment to meet your individual needs.

I can also provide more specialist assessments using various screening tools for anxiety, depression, obsessive and compulsive behaviours and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This will not be a diagnosis but will highlight any difficulties so I can tailor the therapy to meet you or your needs. If you want me to, I can also make referrals to specialist services so you can receive further specialist support.

My therapy sessions last for 50 minutes which is the traditional therapeutic hour and are weekly or fortnightly, whichever you decide is best for you.

Other Services: Health Coaching – Weight Loss
As there is a strong link between mental health and diet, and after spending years working with clients with eating difficulties; I am now a qualified Nutrition Health Coach so can offer you this additional support in achieving your health and weight loss goals. I specialise in the ketogenic diet but can also help you with just eating healthily without dieting.

Availability:
I offer therapy from 3pm Monday to Sunday (except Wednesdays). My Therapy sessions are weekly and last for 50 minutes.

If you think I am the right therapist for you, then I look forward to hearing from you.
