Summary

UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and BACP Accredited Counsellor. Private, confidential counselling therapy in Canary Wharf, London, Camberley, Surrey. Help with depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, relationships, redundancy and more.

My Background

I have been involved in counselling and psychotherapy since 1995 and qualified as a UKCP Registered practitioner in 2000. I decided to become BACP Accredited and have remained so since 2006. I have worked extensively for Employee Assistance Programmes, seeing a variety of clients from different professions including the police, ambulance services, fire service, prison officers and people who work for a range of commercial organisations. I am registered as a practitioner with BUPA, Aviva, AXA PPP, WPA and Benenden private health insurers. I also work with visually impaired clients, doing home visits through a Surrey based charitable organisation. I have provided Home Office mandated professional support to personnel who work with H M Prison service on rehabilitation programmes with prisoners.

Since 2012 I have been working also on contract for the NHS for an online IAPT (Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies) service. I also have worked with a great number of private individuals and couples. I work with most issues – and constantly come across issues which I have not encountered before – but find that psychotherapy training has given me a very grounded and sound theoretical base from which to work, regardless of the particular issues which clients may bring.

I have a great deal of experience of providing therapy – and research tends to indicate that seasoned practitioners are on the whole the most effective.

How Can I Help?

In a secure and confidential setting, I can provide help and experience in working with a wide variety of difficulties. Sometimes issues are of long-standing and really are blocking people from moving on in their personal or professional lives. Sometimes issues are more about coming to terms with things that have happened. Often it is a combination of both of these. This is not an exhaustive list, but gives examples of problems people bring.

and many other difficulties too…

As an experienced psychotherapist, I deal with people with complex issues.
