About Me


I am a fully qualified, BACP accredited cognitive behavioural therapist, with vast experience of working in a wide variety of environments. I am also currently in training to specialise in EMDR.  I deal with a very diverse client caseload and work in the NHS and private sector, with extensive experience  dealing with mild-complex psychological issues. My work has involved working in GP surgeries, in a residential rehabilitation unit for individuals struggling with drugs and alcohol misuse, running clinics for chronic pain and with Cruse, an organisation dealing with bereavement, grief and loss.


I provide cognitive behavioural therapy in a very private location, which is close to bus and train routes, with free off road parking.  Our work together will be confidential in a warm, caring, comfortable setting.  You will be given the opportunity to understand difficult emotions, stress and depression and find ways to achieve more clarity, balance and happiness in your life.  We will work so you really feel truly heard and understood.


My areas of expertise are vast and include all anxiety and depressive disorders, relationship issues, low self-esteem and confidence, substance misuse, chronic pain and grief and loss.  Areas in which I can help are extensive and include the following:
