I am a BACP Senior Accredited counsellor and member of EMDR UK & Ireland, I have registration as a pre and post adoption counsellor, I am registered with BUPA Healthcare.
I offer face to face counselling and EMDR for individuals, both on a short or long term basis.
My counselling approach is humanistic integrative, which reflects my belief that each person is unique and that given the right conditions has the potential to grow and move forward in their own way. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which individuals can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings and gain personal awareness.
EMDR is a specialised approach working simultaneously on mind, body and emotions. Along with CBT it is the NICE guidelines recommended treatment for trauma. EMDR is also widely used with depression, complex grief, panic, anxiety and to reduce stress reactions.
I have particular experience and interest in working with individuals who have experienced childhood trauma or traumatic event/s in adult life, this may include; bullying, childbirth, emotional trauma, witnessing a distressing event, or experiencing a trauma.
I endeavour to work with individuals or in a way that meets their current needs and have a range of therapeutic approaches and skills to offer. I have 18 years experience including; private practice, employee assistance schemes, voluntary sector and the NHS.
