I am an integrated psychotherapist - this means that I have been trained within different theories of psychology and psychotherapy. I have experience if working within different areas of counselling and psychotherapy. I have spent several years working within the NHS with GP referrals to help patients with depression, anxiety, loss, trauma and many other presentations.
I am a Relate qualified therapist and have worked for several years with couples who are experiencing difficulties within their relationship. I am BACP accredited, which means I have been accredited by the governing body of BACP to be working to the high standards that they set. I am registered with WPA and Bupa to offer counselling and psychotherapy as an approved supplier.
I work with couples who have experienced an affair in their relationship, some couples who don't know quite what is wrong, some who want to separate but don't know how to and those who what to evaluate where they are with their partner. I work with heterosexual couples and same sex couples. I offer a non-judgemental environment in which you can explore how you feel. The aim is for you to feel empowered and find a way that you can manoeuvre around the obstructions you have found in your way.
Outside of psychotherapy I have experience of working within FTSE 100 and for several years worked within sales- running teams within the south east - I understand the pressure that one can be under within a corporate environment, as well as within personal life. I find this to be quite a unique position as most counsellors and psychotherapists have usual come more directly into the vocation. Such experience provides me with an insight into a wider world perspective.
I also work as part of a family therapy team working with families who are experiencing a high degree of difficulty within their family unit and work within Relate as a Family Counsellor.
I have a range of experience supported by academic qualifications that allow me to work effectively with a range if presentations. There is nothing that can't be spoken about and while sometimes we might feel trapped, backed into a corner or hopeless I know that through conversations resolutions can be found. I can offer you that secure safe place to bounce ideas around, that is confidential.
