About me

Life matters—but quality of life matters more. Anxiety, stress and depression impinge upon the quality of life. So,individual’s quality of life is the central focus of my client work. I have worked with clients with Bi-polar disorder, OCD, Psychosis, clinical depression, addiction,couples therapy, and acute anxiety, etc. I offer counselling and psychotherapy for short and long term to meet clients needs. I also use 2+1 model of CBT.

I am a fully trained, qualified and experienced Psychotherapist/ Counsellor and Supervisor. I have worked with various counselling organisations across Shropshire including volunteering at Telford Mind. I also review new counselling/psychotherapy books and therapy articles for magazines for various publishers.

As a private counselling practitioner my approach is open and flexible. Atthe initial assessment, I like to discuss the choice of therapy available and the best approach to meet the individual client’s needs, in recognition of the fact ‘one size does not fit all’. However I have no illusion that relationship between a client and a counsellor is the primary requirement for any modality to work. It is explored and brought to client’s awareness during first session.

I have been training counsellors/psychotherapist for over 15 years, and have been running courses at level 4 and 5 with very successful pass rate.

As a professional member of the BACP I am bound by their code of practice and ethics.
