I am a relaxed and non-judgemental, fully qualified, BACP senior accredited counsellor, EMDR therapist and wingwave coach. I am truly fascinated by the human mind and how our experiences, beliefs and behaviours shape our wellbeing and am passionate about supporting individuals to find ways to improve their mental health and overall satisfaction in life.
I am delighted to offer a suite of complimentary approaches to tailor the support to your needs and preferences:
Counselling is a universal option that gives space for collaborative exploration, validation, problem solving and action planning. Typically, a more long-term approach, counselling allows for the development of a more trusting and open therapeutic relationship, which can be easily returned to in times of need.
EMDR combines elements of standard counselling, whilst following a more structured approach, whereby we activate your brain's own self-healing system, for rapid change. Therefore, if you are looking for results in a shorter number of sessions, then this might be best suited for you.
Wingwave fuses together talking therapy and EMDR with the addition of the Myostatic Muscle test, which helps us to detect unconscious areas of stress, that may be fuelling present day dysfunction. Wingwave is another rapid technique and is particularly helpful when we do not consciously know what's holding us back and where we have clear goals for the future.
I specialise in working with young people aged 11 and above. Young people not only experience a unique range of stressors but their development also plays a key role in their mental health. I have extensive experience working with young people in schools, the community and privately. I continue to work in a local school supporting 6th form students and allocate 90% of sessions to young people in private practice.
As a member of the BPS Directory of Voluntary Careers Speakers, I go into schools to deliver talks on psychology and counselling.
I am an approved mental health provider on the Now and Beyond Directory, connecting schools with mental health professionals, expert in working with young people.
