I am a fully qualified chartered counselling psychologist and a member of the British Psychological Society. I have worked as a therapist for thirteen years in various NHS, forensic and voluntary sector settings and private practice and have an extensive knowledge and experience of psychological and emotional difficulties. My specialist interest is in the treatment and recovery of drug and alcohol misuse and childhood abuse. I am currently employed in the NHS working with adults with severe and enduring mental health issues. I also offer supervision to counsellors in Warwickshire and the West Midlands.













I believe that at the heart of any work together is the client/therapist relationship and strive to promote a collaborative and supportive partnership from the beginning. Troubling and distressing problems or areas of feeling stuck or overwhelmed can then be explored in a trusting, safe and understanding environment, using a person-centred approach that places the client as the respected ‘expert’ in their realm of experience.



I draw upon various psychological theories and use tried and tested psychological tools and techniques that are matched to the client’s specific, individual needs. These include Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioural and Schema Therapy. The aim of therapy is firstly to formulate the root cause and what maintains or even exacerbates the problem; this then enables the client to gain insight and to find solutions, providing a positive way forward and a sense of growing empowerment and self-worth. It is often a journey of self-discovery.



The ultimate goal is for the client to work through the difficulties they are experiencing and to move on from feeling out of control to a place of calm reflection, inner peace and self-fulfilment.
