About me

I am a qualified psychotherapist with over 11 years post qualification experience. I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I have experience working with all different kinds of people with all different problems including anxiety, stress, relationship problems, low mood, abuse, trauma, depression, stress, conflict, relationship problems, bereavement, chronic health conditions and death anxiety.
I have a lot of experience working with young adults and students.
I work confidentially with you to understand your difficulties and find solutions, helping you live a happier life.
Counselling gives you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I support you to built resilience and manage emotional distress. This gives you strength in yourself and confidence to change, carry on and re-connect to your values and what you find important in your life.

I am interested in trauma and treating trauma. I have completed Part 1,2 & 3 of the Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) training. I am currently using EMDR with clients and have clinical supervision with an EMDR consultant.

EMDR is well researched and is recognised by the NHS as a treatment for trauma & PTSD. EMDR helps create connections in your brain's memory networks and this enables you to process the traumatic memory in a natural way.

I am skilled at working with clients to understand how their childhood experiences and relationships have impacted on their sense of self and how this may play out in current relationships and cause distress. This form of psychotherapy helps you to make changes and builds a more complete understanding of yourself and how you relate to others at work, home and socially.

I am resilient, warm and empathic. I am non-judgemental.

I work online and I am based in Leighton Buzzard and Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire.
