UKCP, UKATA, BPsS Registered Psychotherapist
What I can help you with....I am experienced to help you overcome anxiety and panic attacks, 'low mood', work or family stress and depression.
If you have suffered a bereavement or had a traumatic experience (even if it was a long time ago) and are having sleep disturbances, flashbacks, or perhaps still upset, angry, confused or scared - I will be able to help you deal with this so you can move on with your life positively.
I am registered as a qualified psychotherapist and routinely work with people medically diagnosed with depression, generalized anxiety, bipolar symptoms and personality disorders.
I am experienced in working with people who have experienced abuse - physical, emotional or sexual - either as an adult or when they were a child.
I am trained to listen and gently ask questions that will help you discover how things can be positively different for you. My therapy room can also just be a place to be warmly accepted - no matter what you think, do or feel - and a much needed space 'to be yourself'.
Call, text or email me.... Please click here for my contact details.I am usually able to respond to emails or texts within twenty four hours.
I have worked in a range of healthcare, voluntary sector and education settings over the past twenty five years. My professional memberships reflect my training in cognitive, behavioural and social psychology, counselling, and clinical psychotherapy.
I currently only have daytime appointments available. I can usually offer an initial session within a week or two. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are charged at £55. Payment can be made by bank transfer, cash or cheque. The therapy process can sometimes take just a few weeks. Alternatively, longer term therapy may be the most helpful.
A bit about me....
I currently undertake work for the NHS, a number of healthcare providers and insurance companies, including Aviva.
I work therapeutically in a relaxed, warm and professional way.
If you would like to know anything else before we meet - it's fine to ask questions. I will respond to your text, call or email in confidence.
