I am a qualified Person Centred, CBT, EMDR therapist and registered with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapist. I have over 16 years of experience.
My therapy room
I became a therapist after volunteering for Barnados for a number of years. I worked on a number of projects within Barnados including inclusion projects for young people with learning disabilities, family liaison, independent visitor for looked after children and being an advocate.
As part of my placement I worked in a women's centre and ended up staying for 12 years. I have worked with a wide range of people and problems including depression and anxiety, obsessive thoughts and behaviours, bereavement and complicated grief, sexual and psychological abuse, relationships and family issues, trauma and dissociation.
I also work in two senior schools and adapt my approach to fit with the specific needs of young people. I hold an Enhanced Certificate with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
My private practice is in Allerton, South Liverpool.
