Chartered Counselling Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor
CPsychol, DCPsych, CSAccred, PG Dip, BA (Hons) Psych.
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor registered and accredited by the BPS and HCPC.
I have been in private practice in Newbury, Thatcham and Reading for the past ten years. I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work alongside the NHS as a Specialist Rhinology Psychologist. I also set up the psychology service for the Ear, Nose and Throat Department at Charing Cross Hospital. I work with individuals from the UK as well as Europe, Spain and in particular the Valencia province. I work as an assessor and clinical supervisor at the British Psychological Society independent route to qualification as a counselling psychologist. I am a visiting lecturer at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, London.
I currently offer online sessions via a secure video platform.
Something in your life has motivated you to seek therapy, it may be work, relationship or physical health-related. Whatever the reason, the daunting prospect of therapy for most people tends to be finding and meeting a therapist for the first time. Therefore, I hope the information I provide, will go some way in helping to relay some of your fears and anxieties and if nothing more, just help to inform you about the process of therapy. This continues to be a challenging time for many. If you are struggling, please do reach out and contact a qualified therapist. There is a lot that can be done to help you manage anxiety, isolation and overall wellbeing.
I work with adults on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim to enable you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. My training includes Doctor of Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, postgraduate Clinical Diplomas in both Psychotherapy and Psychodynamic Counselling and a BA (Hons) in Psychological Counselling.
