Please meet our team
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS) with 12 years of professional work experience. I have worked in the NHS in primary and secondary care settings, private practice and community projects and have a good understanding of health and social care needs and mental health issues.
My clinical experience with the NHS enabled me to integrate psychological theory and research into practice. I have experience in delivering appropriate psychological interventions with individuals and groups, addressing the needs of each client. I have experience in helping clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, childhood abuse, and addiction. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. A person-centred approach underpins the core of my practice, incorporating different techniques to empower my clients to manage and take control of their health and wellbeing.
