About me

Many advances have occurred within the last twenty years since I began working within the mental health field.

Originally I completed a Diploma in Counselling (Humanistic) and shortly afterwards I relocated to Singapore where I continued to study for a Master in Social Sciences (Counselling) where the focus was on family and systemic therapy.

When I returned to the UK I started working with the NHS as a Counsellor then Senior Counsellor and in 2008 I studied for a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBP) with the University of Derby.

CBT is an evidence based therapy for the treatment of depression and anxiety related disorders. It is an effective treatment recognised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines.

In addition to CBP I have trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is recognised by the World Health Organization and NICE Guidelines as an effective treatment for many psychological disorders including Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

Whilst studying for a Master of Science (MSc) in EMDR the focus of my dissertation was on the maladaptive memories acquired during cancer treatment.

As an EMDR Consultant, I am now seeing more clients with trauma related difficulties such as relationship abuse and neglect and the ongoing consequences and fear following on from an illness including a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

I have worked with the Trauma Response Network who provided EMDR group therapy for front-line workers during the pandemic.

Whilst working within the NHS where half of my time was spent providing clinical supervision I attended IAPT supervision training and beforehand I had gained a Diploma in Clinical Supervision.

I provide CBT and EMDR Clinical Supervision.
