I am registered with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and The Association of Family Therapy as an Individual, Couple and Family Psychotherapist.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy regarding all adult mental health issues, depression, anxiety, confidence and self-esteem, bullying, domestic abuse, childhood abuse, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss, child behaviour, and life cycle changes, antenatal and postnatal anxiety and depression, stillbirth and miscarriage, pet bereavement, chronic illness and disability,
I have a lot of experience working with clients who experience anxiety and depression, and use simple mindfulness and cognitive techniques as part of my work. I believe education about managing our mental health is a significant part of any treatment.
One of my major interests is looking at mental health and relationships around the transition into parenthood, including ante natal and postnatal depression and anxiety. The responsibilities as a parent can feel complicated and overwhelming at times from birth to adulthood, and will often benefit from identifying strategies and coping mechanisms in a non- judgemental and safe environment.
I will also draw on previous experience as a mental health nurse and specialist health visitor, though now I only work in the independent sector as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
I am happy to discuss your requirements and fees with you at time of assessment. I will see you in comfortable surroundings and parking can be available. I am flexible with appointments offering day, evening and weekend sessions.
