Hello. I run a private practice supporting adults and young people using CBT/REBT as my primary mode of therapy. Hopefully my clients find that I am open, easy to talk to, non-judgemental, good with their children and help people address their issues with the right amount of lightness and humour where appropriate. I am an accredited professional registrant with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society. I have been supporting children and families for nearly 20 years and like to develop an open and honest relationship with the clients I support. I find a realistic look at the way in which we often put obstacles in our own way, and helping people shake up old thinking and behavioural habits are the way forward. My main approach with all clients is based on the principles of REBT, but, recognising that the relationship between myself and my clients develop differently with specific needs, I tune into and discuss what would work best for you.

Whether we recognise it or not, we tend to live life with rules, rules, rules. These can be flexible, but they can also be set in stone. REBT focuses on the unhelpful role that holding rigid and inflexible beliefs about ourselves, others and the world, can have on our mental wellbeing. I help clients recognise that there is often a more flexible view, one that aligns with reality and one that clients of all ages can learn to apply throughout their lives. Together we construct realistic and helpful preference beliefs which actually resonate with real life - accepting the possibility of difficulty and hardship, but being able to navigate it in order to work towards our goals.

I have worked in education for nearly 20 years, supporting children and families through the rigours of learning, wellbeing and lost coats. I lived in South London for most of that time, having more recently relocated to the South coast where I work in my private practice supporting adults, children and young people with a range of emotional difficulties with a structured and dynamic approach.
